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.

    • DonBo, good luck on your bow quest,  your father raised you well!  What a great way to celebrate life by sharing a hunt together.
    • My family has LIfe 360 on our phones. It allows you to know exactly where that phone is at all times. My teenage kids were not to hip on the idea until my wife explained that you either have the app or you don't have a phone. It already saved a phone. My son dropped his phone in the middle of a bean field last summer.  We were able to use the app to drive a wheeler to within 10ft. Well worth it.
    • My personal opinion on the backup pumps is that they are a stop gap to buy you enough time to minimize the amount of water that backs up during a torrential storm while you get your primary pumps on a generator.    Obviously the biggest factor is to figure out how much water can enter the drainage system during the heaviest downpours and that can help you decide what gpm you need to stay ahead of the water. If you get a bigger backup pump then you will burn through a battery faster.    If you don't get a lot of water in the system ever and if the sump pump only runs periodically during even heavy rains and wet weather then you can get more run time from a smaller system.    There really isn't a way to say exactly what you need to be 100%safe unless you know exactly what flows you have.
    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
