Cuda Professional Knives – A Step Above

Cuda ProfessionalLast year I got to review Cuda’s Titanium Bonded Fillet Knife along with other great tools and it turned out to be a great knife for the price point, but now I’ve had the opportunity to fillet some fish with the new Cuda Professional Knives.  They have a higher price tag, but the quality is higher to match.

The Cuda Professional grade knives have a Titanium Bonded, Non-Stick USA 40A Carpenter Steel, these knives provide the ultimate level of edge retention and corrosion-resistance.

Titanium Bonded is not painted or plated but an application of a unique formulation of titanium, chromium and nitride to the cutting blades that actually penetrates and treats the metal to create a permanent bond. The patented Titanium Bonding process provides corrosion and adhesive resistance and the process itself makes the stainless steel 3x harder than untreated stainless, providing a blade that stays sharper longer.

Of course, as in all Cuda knives, the steel runs all of the way through the handle, known as “full tang” and creates a much stronger knife.

Speaking of the handle, the new Professional Knife features a unique handle composition that has a great, non-slip feel and function.  Its made with a 47 Layers of compressed, cold molded Micarta®, which creates this great new feel.

I was using the Semi-Flex 7″ Wide Fillet Knife, which strikes a good balance between flex and stiffness.  Cuda also offers the Professional grade in a 6” Curved Boning Knife, 10″ Semi-Flex Wide Fillet, 9″ Serrated Knife, 9″ Fillet Knife, 6″ Fillet Knife, and a 10″ Butcher Knife.

Each Cuda knife comes with a molded sheath that is made to fit each knife perfectly.

Capt. Scott Goodwin started fishing in the lakes of Kentucky where he grew up. A move to Florida, however, brought him into a whole new realm of fishing. After receiving a bachelor's degree in biology from Eckerd College, he decided that he liked catching fish more than studying them and thus began his career as a captain. Scott began working as a mate on a charter boat and worked his way up to captain. He has been fortunate to fish in some of the top locations on the globe, including Florida, Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico and the Bahamas. Scott has learned from some of the best captains in the sport and has more than 27 years experience as a professional fisherman. He openly shares his knowledge and fishing tips on BD. Scott is now the editor of BDOutdoors.
