Because every Red Forgeworks knife is forged by hand, they take a considerable amount of time to make.

This hand-forged damascus fillet knife is designed to be the finest trout or sunfish fillet knife available. The 5-3/4 inch, approx. 386-layer damascus blade is composed of three types of steel: 52100, 5160, 15N20. The average carbon content of this steel is approximately 0.76%. The blade is differentially tempered so that the body is spring tempered for flexibility, while the edge retains a high degree of hardness for edge retention. The combination of flexibility and edge retention is fairly unique for a fillet knife, as it is exceptionally difficult to temper such a long, thin blade this way. The blade also features an extremely sharp, Scandinavian inspired, single bevel, flat ground edge.
The handle wood pictured is Pacific yew reclaimed from an industrial paper roll chock block. The handle is attached with the highest quality West Systems epoxy before being hand-riveted with solid brass rivets. The handle has been finished with food safe butcher's block oil.
Our source is limited of Pacific Yew wood and we are not sure if it will last through orders being placed at this point. Please take a look at our other options here (http://redforgeworks.bigcartel.com/customization) and let us know what you would prefer other than Pacific Yew.
A fitted leather sheath is available for this knife for $70.
This knife is also available in a 7" length and 9" length (good for Redfish, Salmon, etc).
The 7" damascus fillet knife is $365 without a sheath. With sheath: $435
The 9" damascus fillet knife is $435 without a sheath. With sheath: $505
