Miracle Fillet Knife

7 posts in this topic

I know everyone has seen these things on tv but i purchased one when i must have been in a gullable mood. but my ? is has anyone used the miracle blade 3 series fillet knife. i figured that would be one of the better knifes to get, and if it ever dulls breaks or anything even if it is your fault you can return it with a lifetime garuntee. i remembered that off the show smile.gif kinda sad

i accidentally got an extra set too so it better be good. if anyone wanted it i would sell it, otherwise it will be a birthday gift to my mom.

Anyone ever buy knives from the guy at the Northwest Sportsman Show. He is there every year and I remember this product cuz he bent his knife to easily take the skin off of a tomato (he said cuz they wouldn't allow him to use fish at the show - health code reason). By 'bent' I mean, he took the tip of his knife against the cutting board and flexed it (alot more flex than my Rapala fillet knife has).

Most of those knives you see from
Rapala and the like have stainless
blades. While decently sharp when
new, they don't have that "flex"
that makes them a good filet knive.
After some use, they can become dull
and good luck putting the edge back
on a stainless blade!!! You are
way better off getting a knive with
a carbon steel blade. The average Joe
can put an edge back on one of these
plus the carbon steel has more flex
than its stainless cousin..IMO

I have found Cutco knives to be of high quality and have lengthy lifetimes and durability.

One note on the Leech Lake Knifes, don't get one with the double sided blade. You remember real quickly that it is sharp on the top.

The guy at the Sportshow is Don Canney. The knives are called Leeck Lake Knives. I've had it for 3 years and get it sharpened each year at the show for free. It is by far the best fillet knife I've had. I can fillet fish much better with it. I think the belt they sharpen it on is diamond-impregnated. The edge stays very, very sharp for so long. I bought one for a good friend of mine last year and he agrees. When I was a younger, I thought "Who would spend so much on a fillet knife?" Through experience I've realized that quality equipment costs more because it is worth it. Search the internet for Leech Lake Knife Company and you should find all the information you need.

The double-sided blade (the tip is sharpened on the back side about 2 inches up) is one of the reasons why the main blade of these knives stay so sharp. I only cut myself two times before I learned how to use it properly. They provide the first bandaid with the knife.

    • Had an 09'. Got rid of it. Also,  you could not keep the front end aligned.  Otherwise a very nice truck.
    • Helps when I comprehend what I read.  I actually just cut the handle off my tongue jack on my Yetti and welded on 3/4 nut too.  My M18 drill with 1,200 in-lbs (2704-20) and it has no problem raising or lowering the tongue.  Biggest thing I noticed was making sure my drill was on the #1 low speed setting.      As far as torque goes and harming your auger.  I think you are totally fine and shouldn't harm anything.  The max amount that these K-Drills and Clam plates are drilling these days with the big drills are 8".  Most sized augers these days have no problem turning a 10" auger which is nearly twice as large of an area than an 8" auger.  Being 2 strokes can normally operate in any orientation without being damaged the only concern I would have would be your gears and any shifting of grease inside operating the auger head on its side under load.    They say Ions will do 10" holes but after I talked to their customer service reps about it, I wouldn't trust an Ion with a 10" more than I do a wet fart.  Just the fact that they don't even sell a 10" package indicates there could possibly be issues with torque and reliability when operating the 10" auger "accessory".  For now I'd just stick to your strike master going up and save your Ion any extra wear and tear.  Maybe even ask Santa for some electric jacks this Christmas
    • As the media begins to draw a pretty picture about the November jobs report, namely that unemployment has dropped to 4.6 percent, its lowest level in nine years, they are unlikely to tell you the other part of the story. The labor force participation rate continues to decline and is stuck at a rate we haven't seen since February 1978, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  It gets worse. Last month, we lost 4,000 manufacturing jobs, offering more damage to the already 301,000 we've lost since President Obama took office. - Town Hall   See for yourself.. U.S. Dept of Labor / BLS Date Viewer   Whaaa ???   OH, MY....  
    • I wouldn't do that for each one. I was wondering if you couldn't cut a winch down, or maybe just leave it as is, so you could attach a drill to the low speed post and tack weld/rig a socket or something for the other side and just hold it in your hand. It probably won't work because it sounds too easy. 
    • My, such big words!! Yer a talented liddle Smurf, aintcha? We might as well get to work doin' what we were accused of, munchkin!!! Like Carly Simon said, "no one does it better"....
