A few years back I was introduced to Dexter Knives and my bait cutting (and fish cleaning) has changed forever. I bought a 9" Sandwich Knife because I once saw it cut through a solid skip jack. Since I have owned mine there has been nearly 30 tons of catfish brought through my boat and that one knife is still cutting the bait. Let me tell you, it takes a lot of bait to catch that many catfish.
This knife may not look show room new any more but it is still cutting bait just like the first day I took it out of the package.
