The CRKT M.U.K. (Marine Utility Knife) was designed by Jeff Veff as the perfect fishing knife. Everything about this knife, even the super low price tag has a reason. In the case of the price tag, it's not gonna cause financial turmoil if it falls into the deep blue or gets lost.
The Marine Utility Knife features a full tang stainless steel blade with a straight cutting edge in combination with a concave serrated section. Tom says the straight edge cuts cleanly against a cutting board. The oversized serrations are "non-stick"—there is no sharp point to snag. The blade's rounded back reduces the risk of cutting entrails when cleaning fish. Then there is the row of non-slip grooves along the top of the blade. These are friction grooves for your thumb, but they also work great as a fish scaler.
The M.U.K. has a unique offset handle angle that allows knuckle clearance when cutting bait or slicing fish on a cutting table. And it has a soft, grooved polypropylene handle with four finger choils to give you all the grip possible when your hands are cold, wet, and slippery. At the butt, there's a lanyard hole and a blood groove spoon. Includes a blade guard that just slides on.
