    As mentioned leaving the skin on is a good option too.

    I'll look at Victory knives again. I've recently moved house and I've lost a heap of gear. Blunt knives suck.

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    The blue handled Dick knife is my favorite . It's getting pretty worn now and is nearly due for retirement but the shape is still fairly true.
    The white Victory does hold an edge better but it is fairly new in comparison and I don't like it's shape or flex quite as much.
    Both good knives tho.

    If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.

    I don't like a pointy tip as if you fillet to the main bone then over it is the tip that does most of the work and needs to be rounded for the edge to last and get a good flat cut.
    If you fillet in one swipe the tip is irrelevant but each to their own.
    Knives are like women and not every man likes the same.
