Gerber questioned hardcore anglers from across the nation, filtering that feedback into the design of one seriously inspired fillet knife: the Controller. Across different locations and species, one point rang true: an insightful fish fillet knife can make short work of messy business. No matter if you are bank fishing, kayak fishing, fly fishing, or beyond, the Controller Fillet Knife System is the ideal companion for the journey.

What came up fast and often was the need for a dependable steel blade that could take a beating and hold an edge – enter 9Cr steel. Selected specifically for its toughness, corrosion resistance, and edge retention, the blade is also mirror polished for added protection and the ability to clean it easily. The Controller is constructed with a full tang steel blade for sturdy and safe use in slippery situations.

Finding your grip on a wet fish can be tricky, the same shouldn’t be said for your fillet knife. On a mountain riverbank, bobbing kayak, or everglade swamp, adventure anglers demand more of the grip on their fillet knife. Built right into the handle itself are the GuideFins™ which provide solid placement for your thumb and unrivaled control for smooth, safe cuts. The handle design aims for comfort and utility – HydroTread Grip™ is applied strategically in raised sections for traction and to quickly wick water away when cleaning up for the day.

A crucial part of the fillet knife system, is the Controller’s innovative sheath. Designed with generous venting, the molded plastic sheath doesn’t get water logged and is easy to rinse out when the job’s done. A built-in sharpener allows for blade touch-ups on-the-go, and it’s easily mounted with multiple options for safe stowage on a backpack, belt, or pocket.

Gerber tools are built to last a lifetime. To ensure optimal performance, rinse your tool with fresh water and dry thoroughly with a clean towel.

5 of 5 Excellent Product April 6, 2020
Reviewer: steve from utah  
started with 6” gerber.  once in hand, then used on fish, ordered an 8” and another 6”.   a 6” & 8” now in my boat, along with other quality knives.  the second 6” now added to my hunting knives for boning out deer & elk in the field.  very good, safe sheath.  the steel sharpener reduces those yellow, red etc., plastic knife sharpeners.  well designed product.
