Frequently Asked Questions

American Angler’s goal is to help you make the most out of each fish you catch. Review our guide below for information on which American Angler EFK blades to use for different sizes and types of fish.


When you’re out on freshwater and the catches are smaller, the last thing you want to do is tear your catch apart with an electric fillet knife blade that’s too large. Use the 5.5” curved fillet blade for the best results. Its smaller length, slight curve and serrated edge will give you complete control when cleaning species like panfish and perch.
If you’re dealing with larger catches than the 5.5” blade can handle, swap it out for our 8” curved, serrated blade. It’s our most versatile EFK blade and can be used on almost all freshwater species of fish.
If you’re fishing for medium-sized catches such as sea trout, walleye, crappie, catfish or bass, go with our 8” shark blade. The unique cut of the curved blade, double serrations and a smooth point make it a high-performance option that lasts and lasts. 

Step it up to our 10” shark blade meant for larger catches. Its flat edge and double serrations make it durable for the larger species such as striper, redfish, catfish, and bass or salmon.
Last but not least is the 10” heavy duty blade. With no cutaways along the top of the blade, this one was meant to cut through heavy and thick catches. Use it on large catfish, freshwater and saltwater striper, redfish, grouper, rock cod and many others.

Using the right American Angler EFK blade for the job will keep your blades performing longer and help you make the perfect fillet cuts each and every time!
