Rated 5 out of 5áby KCFlyboy Great Trout Knife!
I ordered two of these LL Bean Trout knives, one for me and one for a fishing buddy of mine. We both used them last weekend to clean our stringers of freshly caught rainbow trout and the knives worked great. I like the leather hoop; I use a carabineer to hang from my vest so it is easy to reach and the Rosewood handle is easy to grip. The price is right too since my friend and/or I, on occasion, drop and loose knives in the creek and if we did, this would not be a severe hardship if we lost these; I hope we do not loose them but that is a risk. Great knives!

Rated 5 out of 5áby JT74 Solid Traditional Filet Knife
Bought this for my brother for Christmas. He is an avid fisherman and was thrilled by the gift. Solidly made with top notch materials and craftsmanship. He says it is a great addition to his tackle box.

Rated 5 out of 5áby seawaif Great Boning Knife
Still own the original from the '70's. It's a staple in my kitchen for boning, trimming, etc. Yes, it's carbon, not stainless, so takes some care, but sharpens easily, and seems to hold an edge a lot longer than stainless. Not fancy, stains on the blade add character, but it works. Would definitely recommend as a sharp, thin blade to filet, bone, trim any meat, fish or fowl.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Tigner Old knife New knife
I had this knife back in the early 70's.....it walked away. Just received my new knife and it is way better than what walked away..now I love the 70's knife, it was great and I probably used it more in the kitchen than the trout streams. The new knife is a step up from the 70's model.....this is the LL Bean way of doing things.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Greenghost Not suited for salt water use.
I have two of these knives. Used one several times on fresh water with excellent results, but used the other one yesterday in salt water for the first time. I cut several baitfish and rinsed it in salt water to remove the blood, etc. By the time I returned home a few hours later it was completely corroded. Washed it in soap and water, used a brillo pad, and to no avail

Rated 2 out of 5áby Tutman Disappointed
I am very disappointed with this knife. Out of the box it looks fantastic but after a few uses, I can not get it to hold an edge. Even more frustrating is how quickly the blade has rusted.
I was expecting much, much more for the price from LL Bean.

I bought this for my Grandson. He loves fishing and it's never been off of his side since I brought it home from LL's. "Boy Memaw this is a really neat and a good knife. As the Grandma I was overjoyed that he was thrilled.
