The Ultimate Catch And Clean Companion Launching AT ICAST 2023

The best saltwater fishing trips – whether they occur on inshore, near-shore, or offshore waters – end in exactly the same way: at the cleaning table, as fresh fish wait to be turned into delectable fillets. Of all the tools needed for this essential transformation, none are more important than a high-quality fillet knife, perfectly matched to the day’s catch. Far more than a simple blade fixed to a handle, contemporary fillet knives have evolved over decades of use and refinement to become the specialized tools needed at the saltwater cleaning table.

Smith’s Consumer Products – the Edge Experts since 1886 – is proud to offer two high-performance fillet knives, each packed with features that savvy saltwater anglers demand: the Lawaia 7-Inch and 9-Inch Flex Fillet Knives.

Smith’s Lawaia Fillet Knives provide the features and performance that every saltwater angler needs when processing the day’s catch – no matter how large or bountiful it may be. Each knife features a flexible tip for precision cutting and a stout midsection for powering through hard scales and thick bones.

Both knives are engineered with stainless steel construction for the durability that the harsh marine environment demands, and reinforced with a corrosion-resistant coating to deliver years of service. Choose the versatile 7-Inch Lawaia Flex Fillet Knife when cleaning small-to-medium-sized fish like speckled trout or yellowtail snapper, or the stout 9-Inch Lawaia Flex Fillet Knife when processing larger fish like tuna or grouper. Designed and manufactured to work as long and hard at the cleaning table as you do on the water.


  • Razor-sharp 400 series stainless steel blades for high strength and wear resistance.
  • Durable corrosion-resistant coatings for long life.
  • Ergonomic TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) handles with non-slip soft grips to promote safe and comfortable handling.
  • Breathable protective sheaths.
  • Tether-ready lanyard holes in the handles for convenience.
