The extraordinarily versatile Wahoo Killer knife is the perfect addition to your tackle box, toolbox or bug-out bag. The thick, razor sharp blade can be used for demanding tasks like cleaning wild game, building shelters, splitting firewood or simple day to day cutting jobs. An overlaid rubber handle with checkered pattern allows for a firm grip, even in wet situations. It even includes an ABS sheath with belt clip to safely transport the knife when not in use. Don't miss out on your chance to get one of these great knives at an impossibly low price - one that won't last long!
I did not expect a knife that would be much.. I was wrong.. Not only do these things hold an edge, they are solid made for the price. I use them a LOT for filleting fish of all things. I also have them in my truck, my tractor and toolboxes and I have yet to break one. For this price, you can't get a better deal or knife.
I have bought several of these, I removed the handle and replaced with deer antler. Makes a cool project.
Good review after good review? Well, they are actually true. I skeptically bought this because it was cheap. Well, I am back to buy more! This is a nice, thick blade and it holds an edge well. I use it for just about anything around the house (cardboard boxes, opening packages, threatening my dog (just kidding!!!)) and it is amazing! Because it was a cheap knife, I am not afraid to use it, I am not afraid of sharpening it, and because of that makes it a great buy.
These are from Mora. They make many for other retailers. High carbon steel, they will rust if not coated with light oil. Sharpen easily and hold an edge. Great little utility knives. For $2, you cant go wrong with these!!
This knife rocks for a Chinese product. It's almost as good as my $ 15.00 Morakniv. I love the rubber handle !
Could be better. For the price its not a bad little knife for the price. You get what you pay for, so, it's not Top Shelf, but your not looking for that if you only want to pay a few bucks for a knife. Its the kind of knife you get to do the job, but don't care if it breaks or you lose it. The scabbard/sheath sucks though.
I have a few of these knives and they are in every vehicle and pack. I actually use them more often than I thought I would. I purchased 6 of these to use as steak knives after I noticed that thought in another review. They work great for that too!
Bought a couple awhile back. They disappeared. Had to reorder 4 more. Seems my supposed friends love them.
How could I go wrong...? Just by looking I could see they were worth $2.99 ea. I was not disappointed by the physical quality. Sharp, good gripping handle. Ran mine thru the ceramic discs to fine tune the already sharp SS blade. Useful in the kitchen....slicing & dicing fruits/veggies. Took apart some back ribs w/no hesitation. Should gut fresh fish w/ease. Gave 3 to friends....sharing a sweet deal. Check the identical knife w/Carbon Steel blade for only $4.99 ea......bought 2 of those also. Chinese but expected so @ this price point. Plastic sheath fits snug. Well done......
Bought several of these of these knives in the last few months. Sharp and priced great. Use for poultry processing. Also great to trim banana leaves. Buy several.
This is as perfect a knife as you can find. Just right for demonstrating how to sharpen a pocketknife, with Cub Scouts. It's already razor-sharp, so I just honed the edge a wee bit. Feels good in your hand, as though it was made to fit.
I bought this knife because I just like knives. It was an inexpensive little knife so I figured what the heck, turns out its pretty dang handy. It's worth a lot more than I paid for it.
Bought 1 as afterthought to fill an order. Put it in my tackle box as a standby now It's the one I grab first, if you see the longer one or the set buy them they are a great set as long as you don't cut bait on a rock or concrete the edges hold up exceptionaly well Now have one in each of my Jeeps and my truck!
Wahoo!!! Very nice all purpose knife for the price. I've been using this knife for many every day things rather than one of my more expensive knives.
I bought this for my son who is a scout. I added it to his fire and cook kit. Great price and good all around knife.
the knife is great!! keeps an edge very well used one In Puerto Vallarta and the Mexican fishermen loved the knife so I gave it to one of them that was 4 years ago he still useses it and I have brought down more for them down there I sell for $4.00 american they find them to be a great value. average wage is $16.00 a day! so are willing to pay 1/4 of a days wages for it! love them I keep one in both my Jeeps . my 4x4 ford truck and one in my Mustang . you just never know. some knives I trade for fish and Pacificos!!
I love this knife because the versatility can't be beat for the price. I plan on buying several more for my bug out bags and for friends. I'm keeping my eye out for Bogo deal with this product. I buy from BUDK nearly every month and have been impressed with the overall quality to cost ratio. I have not found a comparable online retailer. Thanks for the great product's and exceptional service!
It's a knife, just as described. It cuts things. It has a sharp point so you can poke things with it too. I poked a potato with it and then cut the potato. I imagine you can poke and cut many things with this because it is a knife.. I would include a list of all the things I have poked and cut with this knife but I don't have time. Too many things to poke and cut right now.
Reprofiled the "factory edge" down to 18 degrees and it's a great knife for three bucks. I prefer it to a scandi grind. Bought extra for atv friends etc...
Best little three dollar knife you can buy!!! We deer hunt and used these knives to butcher several deer while remaining sharp. My son and I love them!!! Not real sharp out of the box but easy to establish a good edge. Will be ordering more
I ordered two and they weren't overly sharp, but were easy to put a good edge on. They are a real steal. I have been really abusing one and it has held up to batoning and general hardship quite well.
I love the knife. Only issue is mine had a burr and wasn't sharp. However wasn't too bad to sharpen and has held the edge. Well worth the money.
I use them at work, daily. I cut carpet, foam, cardboard, glue and more. It's also not bad for throwing if you get bored. Holds an edge well and sharpens easily.
I have ordered several of these little knives and will be ordering several more. I have one in my car, truck, boat, each tackle box, and three in my bug out bag. For the price these little knives can't be beat. I just can't get enough of these
Just received two that I ordered. I will be ordering more. Nice little knife, light and with the blade shape it's very versatile.
I am very impressed with this knife. The blade length is great and the price is incredible. I plan on buying more of these for future Christmas presents.
How can anyone produce,,then sell a knife like this for 2bucks?? Better question,,,why would anyone buy anything else?? I now have purchased 25. Given some for Christmas,,,under five dollar,,,,gifts. EVERYONE thought I was over budget. Even the ladies said their's would be in the glove box of their car. Ordering 25 more for free shipping with $49 minimum purchase. These are great for cutting produce and fish in the hydroponic garden. Waterproof, easy to manipulate, sharp, stainless (no rust on white roots), and I don't mind if the guys and gals steal one. I sorta encourage it,,haha. I want my folks to have some sort of self defense tool whether they realize the purpose or not. As far as bang for the buck,,,I can't name a single product from any category of goods that match this knife at this price!
You WILL NOT find a more rugged, more balanced cutting tool for 7....8 times the price of this all-purpose knife/sheath combo! I have every color for different uses-several of each, in fact. The blue-handled are the only ones that say Wahoo Killer on the blade, if that matters at all. G2G little toss-ins that won't break your heart (or wallet) should you happen to have a mishap on the lake and lose it...keep three backups at this price! Through 10+, blades are extremely consistent in thickness and balance, with only slightly varying degrees of sharpness throughout. The first one tricked me into slicing my fingertip pretty "good"; all came sharp to VERY sharp, and all with excellent tips. Slight machine marks on the blade of one in OD handle...it's my favorite.
I ordered 3 of these thinking that for only 2 dollars when it goes dull just throw it away! Gave 2 away to hunting friends. They love them and have skinned several deer and hogs with them. Still sharp! They thought they were expensive knives too! I ordered 8 more and put in my SHTF gear and bug out bags. I have skinned coons,deer and etc... and they retain a sharp edge. I cannot believe them for the price. Great grip and blade.
I bought one for my bug-out bag and wound up using it when we slaughtered our pigs and several of our goats. I've pried hip sockets out and separated vertebrae with this knife and boy can it take the abuse! The sheath is handy when you're working on a hanging piece of meat like when we do our rabbits. The only complaint from me is that it's a little difficult to put a long-lasting edge on these....but when you do, you're in business! I got on the Bud-K site today to buy a few more! My boys know when I say, "Get Mama's Wahoo," they know something's about to be parted out.
I ordered a couple of these to see if they were anything like the Mora Companion, since I have a few of those and have liked their value and performance. Seriously, even if it was a dud, it was $2 and I was making an order with free shipping so, what the hell?! I gotta tell you; they aren't a Mora, but they are probably one of the better bargains on this website and easily worth the $20 I would expect to pay for a Mora in a local retailer! Not as sharp as a true Mora because they are not actually a Scandinavian grind but really have a beveled edge. That being said, they sharpen easily with the Smith diamond stick I keep in my outdoor gear bag, hold the edge fairly well and the rubber grip really sticks in the hand! If you have bigger hands, just a heads up, they are more narrow than a Mora in the grip, but I put a couple pieces of bike inner tube on it and it filled right up with the added bonus of the rubber grip really holds onto the inner tube, so I have some fishing line wrapped around inside of their for survival use. The sheath is a pretty close copy of the Mora, so I used a dremel to groove down the spine of the sheath and epoxied a ferro rod in there for additional utility. These are great B.O.B. knives for camp chores and such, weight is practically nothing and you can hook it on your pants pocket if you're not wearing a belt. I am now making myself a kydex sheath for mine that will increase their carry options and utility by putting other camping or survival items on it and plan to order one of these for everyone in my family and for each vehicle as well. At $2, where can you go wrong? Seriously, worth the money even if you just need it as a beater tackle box knife!
It is almost stupid how good a value these knives are. Are they a connosseur's choice? Of course not. The best metal? No. Solid and sharp enough out of the box to have a couple stashed in the car or boat for quick use when needed? Absolutely. And what's the price? Oh yeah $1.99! ARE YOU KIDDING? Geez, throw a couple in your cart with every purchase. Or just wait for the free shipping and get a decent knife practically free.
I got my first shipment in and then ordered a second. The handle fits good in the hand. The point could be narrower, but if are on a boat you don't want to accidently prick yourself while gutting a fish. It seems sturdy. The blade has a good thickness for the price. The wife likes the orange one for the gear box on her boat. I plan to give these knives to the sport fishing men and women in my wife's family along with my nephew the free-spirit sailboater. It is a good general purpose knife.
Best $2 knife I've ever bought! Bought several of them to try. They work as good as any other $2 knife. I will buy more again sometime, but first I've got to wear these out (or loose them).
One a 5 acre homestead, these things are a no-brainer. I have bought a dozen or so of these and have some assigned for tasks around the property. One is my gardening knife, great for pruning veggie plants, cutting twine, trimming small branches, or cutting out weeds. I have one delegated to the task of processing rabbits, and it handles all steps with ease. I am so impressed with these knives I bought some to give away, and have a sufficient stash to use for a few years. The edge comes decent, but does require a little work to be "razor sharp". Buy one, buy 20, you won't be disappointed.
Figuring that there could not be much to one of these Wahoo Killers I decided to see what they are made from. I figured I would smack the handle with a hammer and it would shatter. That didn't work! It took the vise and a hacksaw and a good bit of work to separate blade from handle. I bought a half dozen and I know about a dozen folks that bought their own half dozen after seeing what it took for me to tear one up. You keep selling them for $1.99 and we will buy as many as you can ship.
bought 10 of these use them for everything fishing hunting or just about anything best 1.99 I ever spent.
Might as well add my compliments to all the other folks, because the positive reviews convinced me to try knife. At $2, I figured it wasn't much of a risk. Blade came sharp, but I wanted a better edge. Sharpening a knife tells you a lot about the quality of steel and utility you can expect. I was shocked at the quality of the steel, and the edge I was able to achieve without a great deal of effort. Got 5 knives- putting them in my boats, tackle boxes and at least one in the kitchen drawer where it will do yeoman duty for a good while. Going to get more. Thinking of taking a Dremel tool and cutting a groove in one of the plastic sheaths to expose a little of the edge and be able to use it as a line cutter when fishing (ok- so I'm lazy). Sheath could use a deeper clip, but this is a minor issue, and can be gotten around with a little work, where needed. This is one of the best bargains in your catalogue! Thanks CHK!
Came back to buy more. Assuming they're still essentially the same, with the changes to the grip and scabbard noted, I liked these knives. I used them fishing and crabbing and in the kitchen. I bought several and gave away several.
Nice medium-thick blade was sharp out of the box. Handle is comfortable and offers a secure grip, might be a bit small for average to large hands. Hard plastic sheath gives a secure hold when the knife is seated firmly. I could see it filleting a fish or cleaning small game, making kindling, or other light duties but splitting firewood like in the description might be a bit too much to ask. I bought a couple just based on the price, and I'll be buying more to stash wherever I'd want a sturdy, serviceable knife that won't break my heart if I lose it.
Good knife for $10. Amazing knife for $2. No brainer. There is no way you won't get your 2 bucks worth, whether or not you fish. Just add it to your order and thank me when it shows up with your other stuff. Simple.
Blade is a little shorter than I would like but other than that this is a great knife. Just bought four and next order im getting one for every one in the family
Just got my new knife yesterday shopping was fast I can't wait to put this knife to work this summer on the lake...Thanks Budk!
I wasn't expecting much for two bucks, but wow! Sharp. Sturdy. Great sheath with drip hole. Bought two. One for me one for a friend. I suggest you do things same.
I bought one of these to compare to my Mora Companion, because it's clearly a copy. I thought it would be good for a laugh. Fact is, the knife's not all that hilarious... The proportions are similar, with the Mora having a slight drop to the blade, and the Wahoo having a flat top. The sheath and clip on the Wahoo are similar to the Mora style, and the blade-release feels about the same. The edge was rough, but cleaned up easily. Looks like about 2mm wide. The Mora's 2.5mm. The handle is not checkered as described, but a rubberized wave-pattern that's pretty deep, and grips nicely. I'll be ordering more of these. Great utility knives. $2. yep
love this knife, at only $2 it was a great deal and came sharp right out of the box
Great little knife for fishing etc. Sharp and well made, can't beat two bucks. I like the sheath
At $2 these really aren't that bad of a deal. They are cheep knives and that's what your getting. Anyone comparing these to a Mora in anything other then appearance needs their head checked however. I ordered 16 and not one had a blade ground evenly on both sides. They are sharp, they are functional, but a Mora is a blade that will last a lifetime. These will need a lot of work the first time they are resharpened just to put on a proper blade profile.
Decided to take a shot and bought a bunch of these. The blade is actually very sharp out of the packaging and hones quickly. Plastic sheath but the knife locks into it securely enough. Kept one for myself and gave the rest away to friends and family who were all very impressed with them. Much better knife than the price point suggests.
This is a great knife at a fantastic price point. Good quality and a nice sheath that is included. You really cannot beat it for the money. One of the best deals you will come by on budk. Jump on it while its in stock!
I bought some of these knives a while back and waited before I wrote a review. I told my wife that I would wait to dress out and cut up an entire deer with one before I did a review. Well, this morning I shot a doe. the only knife that I used was a Wahoo Killer. I did have to put a better edge on it than what it came with but, that was nothing. After dressing and skinning out the entire deer the knife still has enough edge to cut up the meat tomorrow when I finish processing it. So, that is about as good a review as I can give for an "inexpensive" knife. Buy yourself a half dozen or more. You won't regret it. Al
I've bought a lot of these Wahoo Killer knives, in several lots over the months. This latest bunch continues to be better than could be reasonably expected for $1.99 each. I order another bunch whenever "free shipping / no minimum order" sale occurs. I use these myself camping, boating, fishing, hunting, kitchen prep, and ordinary chores. I give away a lot of them to friends and family. Everyone likes them. The thermoplastic sheaths are good, although the belt clip could be improved to fit wider belts and hold more securely. The handles and balance are good. The blades are sharp and hold an edge reasonably well, and resharpen easily. Obviously not quite as good as the Mora Companion knives they seem to be a clone of, but excellent for the price. Perfect for use when you don't want to risk your expensive knives. When I drop one of these in the lake, or a loaner never finds it's way home, my wallet doesn't cringe !
You just cant beat this knife and sheath combo. I actually ordered another one in my second order from Budk. Super Sharp, nice sheath, and cant beat the price that sums it up.
I ordered half a dozen they were all sharp and straight right out of the box, these will be in the stockings of my buds on Christmas great EDC tool, good for the Tool or Tackle Box, not too big for detailed jobs you can fillet a perch or use as a skinner, there is no end to a good knife like this, I just can not believe how affordable they are looks and feels like a more expensive knife, Thanks for these!
I recently received two of these in my order, and they are not only cheap, but they are extremely sharp out of the box! I did a test on my leg to see if it could cut hair well, and it not only completely shaved hair off that area, it cut pretty deep into my skin too. I nearly got infected because of this knife. Anyways, 5/5 because of how affordable they are, their comfortable handles, and how insanely sharp they are. Also, please don't be as reckless as me and try and shave both of your legs with this knife.
If you wash these and leave them to air dry they will rust. But they sharpen and cut good and the handles are controllable but the deep groves make them hard to clean.
This is a really good little knife .I got two and love them .Sharp with plastic molded sheath .Very good buy .
I received my knife the other day and for $1.99, its pretty good. The handle it comfortable and the texture keeps it from slipping when wet. The blade seems to be decent quality and feels sturdy. My knife arrived with several stains and spots on the blade but for the price I'm not complaining. The sheath is good quality and has great retention so the knife will never fall out. Overall, its a great deal for the price.
I've bought a LOT of these Wahoo Killer knives lately. They have been very popular with my friends. So far they've all been surprisingly good. I'm pleased.
I had 4 of these Wahoo Killer Knives from the past that performed well. I bought 10 more to give to friends. Same excellent quality as the last bunch, for $2.50 each including discounted shipping. A very good inexpensive Chinese clone of Mora Companion Swedish knives. Obviously not quite as good as Mora, but for the money, far better than expected. Arrived reasonably sharp, razor sharpened easily with ceramic rod sharpener.Whittled some hickory hardwood to test edge holding, held it's edge as well as many other more expensive knives and resharpened easily. Light weight for hikers. Good grip. Sturdy. Thermoplastic Sheath holds knife firmly. Watch for frequent low cost shipping offers from Budk to keep the cost near $1.99 each. I'm pleased. I'd recommend these where you don't want to abuse or lose expensive knives, and for decent loaners and gifts.
I bought my wahoo killer months ago pretty much based on reviews Here and elsewhere. And yes because it was two dollars. Nothing about this knife says two dollars. Strong blade that can take abuse and a sharpen back nicely. A friend of mine spent a whole fishing trip cutting bait on rocks running the blade across the rocks. I know genius. It got to where you couldn't cut raw shrimp it was so dull. But after some time sharpening, it was back to a sharp edge. Mine works great to make sparks for fire as well. Ordering two more.
I own several of these and regularly use them. Very sharp and easy to keep that way. Better than knives that cost 10 times the amount. I keep one in every car, in my tool box, in the kitchen drawer, and tackle box. I use them in the garden as well.
This is a totally awsome knife and the price is unbelievable. Used it to clean fresh caught catfish which puts any knife to the test and it worked great, I bought another after finding out how good it was.
I threw this in with my latest order simply because it was soooo cheap. I assumed it would be useless junk that I would just use to practice sharpening techniques. It is surprisingly useful. The steal is obviously very cheap and the factory edge had lots of blemishes but I cleaned it up and its not bad. Its basically a cheap knock-off of a Mora but for a $1.99 it really isn't bad. It fits the sheath well and its very secure. I wouldn't count on it as a primary knife but Will be good to have as a backup with fishing gear or just in a utility drawer at home. If they are still selling this so cheap when I make another order, I might buy a couple of them.
Phenomenal Bargain... Purchased as a gift; receiver was so impressed with the quality and handling of the knife; Price was NOT discussed! HA! Buy Now ...
This is exactly the reason that Chinese production stomps American industrial effort. These things are quality knives that would demand a much higher price if they were made here. If you find a better knife for this price.. it might just be stolen.
Great little knife,great price!Buy a few for the kitchen the tackle box ,the pack. Decently sharp out of the box.At 1.99 you need to try these!!
I don't know why people keep referring to this as a fillet knife. It's blade is not flexible enough for that. It should be referred to as a dive knife, as it's well suited for that. It has a stout stainless blade and takes a decent edge. The sheath holds it well enough that it won't fall out and has a drain hole. I'm going to add straps to it to hold it to my leg. I drilled a hole in the blue part of the handle butt and added a lanyard. Then I used a chain saw file and cut serrations into the last half of the blade edge. This is now an excellent dive knife that will cut through any rope or netting I might get tangled in. I only bought three originally and with the free shipping it was almost like getting them for free. YOU CAN'T MAKE A KNIFE ON YOUR OWN LIKE THIS FOR $1.99! The non slip handle is very ergonomic and fits my hand well. All factory knives come with a machine cut factory edge. While it may appear sharp it won't last. Judging a factory knife by it's sharpness upon receipt is just wrong. A knife should be judged on it's construction and usability. If you don't know how to sharpen a knife or just don't want to, don't give a knife less stars just because it's not razor sharp. For $1.99 this is an excellent knife and will sharpen to a decent usable edge. I plan on getting several more when free shipping comes up again. Don't do as several of us have already done and not get enough of them. You'll never regret having too many of these handy knives. They are just that good!
I like it, but mine came with a cut on the rubber handle, likely caused by the sharp edge of the hard plastic sheath. I even like the sheath, but you may want to file the edge down a bit if it seems sharp.
These knives are the best deal on the internet. I ordered twenty this year and am giving them as gifts to my fishing buddies. Don't be fooled by the price as these are good knives that will hold up.
Just got two of these in the mail; what a great buy for $1.99 a piece! Sharp enough out of the box to shave hairs. Really impressed with the quality of this little knife for what I paid. I will definitely be picking a few of these up for stocking stuffers.
when I purchased a three pack of these little beauties last Christmas I wasn't sure what to expect. I mean they are so inexpensive. Get them with free shipping and it's even better. I was thinking bait, filet or camp knife and the Wahoo is certainly all that. With it's hard sheath that retains the knife very well it is great for the backpack or picnic basket. But were it has really shined is in the kitchen. Whether it's meat, cheese, fruit or vegetables the Wahoo has become our go to knife. It can cut and slice anything for food prep, never seems to dull and has that great rubber no slip grip. My advice? Give them as gifts (first to yourself) and then everyone on your list. They will think you paid way more and you will be giving them something wonderfully practical too. Another great product Budk!
very very pleased with knife it comes sharp and is my favrite knife would definitely buy another
I have a bait shop and my customers love these knives for cutting bait. Inexpensive and sharp and with a sheath! I sell them like crazy!
Got 2 of these and they both came razor sharp an stayed that way for a while. I have abused the heck outta the one and havent had any breakages or dings. Super comfortable in the hands and secure sheath. I dont know how this knife only costs 2 bucks :P
Great value. Comes very sharp and easy to keep that way. I've actually shaved with this blade. The knife has a nice grip that feels good in the hand. I keep one in each car, one in my kitchen, one in my tackle box, and one in my workshop. I think this would be a good knife to start young scouts or hunters out on as well.
Great knife. Mora knock off, but still an awesome knife. Sharp as h**l right out of the box. Even sliced my finger within 2 minutes. (stupid mistake)
Ordered one just to see. But this has turned out to be a great knife. The sheath is good and sturdy, Holds a good edge, and the handle is just right. I've put it to the test with cardboard shipping boxes, cutting fall growth of young trees, and even in cutting asphalt shingles. Just as good on shingles as a utility razor. This is definitely a knife to have one of in your kits and every vehicle.
Great knife, especially for the price. Bought one for a friend liked it so much ordered three more for my friends and one for myself.
This is a great knife for an amazing price! I definetly recommend this knife! SO SWAGGY!!!
great knife! its by no means a fillet knife, heck the blade is almost as thick as one of my bowies, but it would make an excellent knife for cutting bait or line or anything else fishing related really. it holds in the plastic sheath very well and while it didn't come very sharp it took an edge nicely and has held it through some wood carving so far. very pleased
got mine today , read a bunch of comments saying it was a knock off, well mine is razor sharp, and is just right for skinning squirrels and rabbits
i bought this same knife at a gun show a few months ago for $7 ( whops ). the sheathe is hard plastic but once the knife is in there, you can turn the sheathe upside down and even shake it and the knife wont fall out yet it slides out of the sheathe effortlessly. the clip on the sheathe works ok but it actually fell off my belt and into the toilet right before i used the restroom. other than that, a great knife.
Strong multi function knife. Great as a bait knife or a general utility knife. Comes fairly sharp and should be able to be honed a bit. Good grip. The price for quality is where this knife shines. I would have paid several times what I did and still be happy. I regret only buying one. I suggest others buy at least three.
These are pretty good in general for a stainless steel knife. As others have said, they are a China knock off of a Mora. The key phrase here is "knock off". I don't really like SS for knives, but it does have its place. This has become my go to kitchen knife and actually is better than the $8.00 Old Hickory paring knife I ordered. I would have given this a 5 star if it had been sharper out of the box. It also is not easy to get an edge on it, but once there, it does hold pretty well. I got them at 3 for $3.99 and see they've raised a dollar since. Even at $4.99 for 3, they are not a bad deal. I've paid more for worse. Bottom line: No they are not Mora quality, but also not Mora priced. If I lost one of these, I wouldn't all that bad. I have one in the shop and one in the kitchen and intend to put the other in my tackle box for a bait knife. I will be ordering a set or two with every BudK order for awhile. Can't beat em for the price. Oh yeah, my 18 yr old son uses the kitchen one all the time and hasn't killed it yet. That speaks of its durability to me.
Knife is solid--worth several dollars. Sheath makes it safe. Handle is good. After proven use, I bought 2nd for kid.
decent knife,sharp good grip even when wet,not a fillet though,but good for all around uses,fishing,cleaning game,utility work,a work knife. yes i bought several and recommend these to you.
I have purchased several dozen of these over a period of time and have received both the blue handle Wahoo Killer and the Army chartreuse color handle Delta Defender but both knives are made exactly the same except for the color. The blades are not flexible enough to be a fillet knife but do function perfectly as an every day general purpose knife and for the field to dress game. The knife is tough as nails and comes with a just as tough plastic sheath with belt clip and drain hole. I have one in my fishing tackle box, both cars, my Harley saddle bag, at the bottom of my day pack! Trust me, save shipping cost, DO NOT order just one because you'll want to order more of them when you get your first one. I have given a dozen away to friends and they love theirs like I love mine. Scuba divers will love this knife and also cave explorers as well. Cowboys and bikers can stuff one down their boots. What's not to like??? Best deal of the century for the money. Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments. We have removed a portion of the review which does not comply with our review guidelines.
I bought several of these knives because of the price and was not expecting much but these knives have very hard steel which means they will not dull quickly. Anyone will see this the first time they sharpen it. If one suffers from tennis elbow, you may want to ask another to hone this knife. It takes many passes across the stone to get anywhere.
I have 30 or 35 different types of knives, but I use these knives everyday. At $2.00 each, I can afford to keep one in every tool box, every glove compartment, hunting pack, tackle box, on each vest/life-jacket and several in the kitchen. Where this knife sets itself apart is when I'm butchering a deer because it makes easy turns, it also cuts straight, and it holds a great edge. The sheath holds its shape so I don't have to use 2 hands to stow the knife. I have bought roughly 25 of these knives (for myself, for my family & for my friends) from Bud K and the service and shipping is always top-notch! I've kept one outdoors for 8 or 9 years and there is no rust on it! Thanks Bud K!
Great knife, but as others have said not a fillet knife. But a very good skinning knife for deer. thanks BUDK
I picked up 4 of these and may get more. Came sharp, good sheath, and a nice feel. The only thing that was slightly disappointing was that it did not say wahoo killer with the fish it says delta defender and was odd color instead of blue but who cares awesome knives thanks budk.
Great price got several for buddies. Should make short work of cleaning waterfowl!
This knife is awesome!! I own a small bait shop and I sell these for $6.00 each and I can't keep them in stock. Well worth the money. Very good quality for the price.You guys have the best deals ever.Thanks!
This is simply a cheaper copy of the classic Mora Clipper... but it's nearly just as good. I have both, and use them, and don't notice much difference at all. For what it costs, it's awesome.
I read the reviews here on Budk, and watched the you tube videos, so I figured, for the price of one Mora Clipper, I could get 9 of these shipped, and I could put one in each car, my bug out bag, shooting bag etc. as well as give many away. When they arrived I can say that I was very impressed. These didn't come very sharp, but they don't have a crazy grind that you need to learn how to sharpen, and in about fifteen strokes on my kitchen sharpening rod, I had my first knife shaving sharp (took the hair off of my knuckles).
As others have said this is not a fillet knife but one heck of a utility knife. I ordered two, one for my Bug Out Bag and one to keep on me. I couldn't believe how well this knife is made and for 2 bucks why not order two or more. The sheath is awesome and really holds the knife in I tried to shake it out and couldn't with out throwing my arm out!!! WOW! I did have to work to get a good edge but now they both are good and sharp. If you are waiting to buy one don't wait buy two or more. GREAT KNIFE!! WOW!! Thanks BudK!!
This knife is great! Right out of the box it came real sharp, I sharpened it even more. So now it is razor sharp! It shaves the hairs of my arm so I'd say that is pretty good for something you get for $1.99. Also and anyone who would be buying this to be a fillet knife it is a great knife, but not a good fillet knife the blade needs to be way thinner! The sheath is build good it has a nice drain hole so the water runs out. I bought three I wouldn't mind buying ten more and I just may sometime soon. Thanks BUDK!!!
I was very impressed with the Wahoo killer. It came with a decent edge. Took a little bit of sharpening to get it to where I like my edge. Its a great knife for the price. Still considering getting a Mora, but I will be ordering a lot more of these very soon.
It is a good utility knife but, it is not a fillet knife. Great plastic sheath and rather stout knife. Recommended for everyday utility knife. That's all it is.
I originally purchased two of these knives one for my fishing tackle box and to give one to my bro. No, as stated by others, this is not a fillet knife but it makes a great spelunking cave knife and for under water adventures, a knife for hunters, hikers, and for general use around the camp. I was impressed with it's comfortable grip, plastic sheath with drain hole that will last forever and retain the knife yet offer quick acquisition when needing it in a hurry. When I received the first two I immediately ordered six more at the price of $1.99 I couldn't resist and have one at the bottom of my day pack as a back up to my belt sheath knife. It is very light but durable and I may order again, maybe a hundred this time! Just kidding but do order a couple because I know you will want more and wished you had after you see and feel your first one. I did.
This knife came with a blunt edge. I had to file a real edge onto it. Not a survival knife and definitely not a fillet knife, it's a MORA knock-off with cheap Chinese construction and metal. You could do a lot worse for $2.99.
I don't really fish but I do know that this is a Mora knife knock off so I don't know why it's labeled as a fillet knife. It's not. When I first got the knife I sharpened it because it came with a weird blade angle. It was sharp, but it seemed to be almost concave and I didn't think it would hold any kind of edge like that. So I ran it through a sharpener and I could literally see metal shavings coming off, so it's a super soft metal that isn't going to hold an edge that well, but it was 2 bucks so that's no surprise. However, I used it last night to split some lumber into kindling for a fire. I was pounding the blade into the end of some lumber with another piece of lumber and the edge held up surprisingly well. I wish I had ordered 3 or 4 of these for super beater knives.
while this is not a very good fillet knife it is an excellent knife for the tackle box, tool box, glove box ect... very handy for the odd job. gardener you'll use this knife often. the rubber grip makes it easy to hang onto even with gloves.
Not the best fillet knife (the blade is a little stiff) but my # 1 choice for a utility knife. Great grip, well made blade that holds a very very sharp edge, comfortable to work with all day without undue fatigue, due to the superbly ergonomic grip and stiff blade. Very well made sheath... I cannot find a thing wrong with this knife ... and for 2 bucks, i'll be buying them till BUDK sells out of them. Nice work BUDK!!!!
This knife is a super deal due to its price and quality. After receiving this knife I ordered more to give as gifts. With the stainless steel blade and rubber sure grip handle it is an ideal bait knife for a catfishing fellow like me. Thank you BUDK for offering such a quality knife at a bargain basement price!
I love this knife. I like the size and the feel of it, as well as the colors. I am going to have to get a couple more of them at this price. Great buy for Panfishing.
