Have any of y’all used both the corded and cordless versions to compare? Cordless would be nice, but I don’t necessarily need it. I wouldn’t want a loss of power on a bigger fish.

I've had several different electric knives and they all crap out way earlier than they should. These days I buy an electric knife from the kitchen department for around $15 and use it until it craps out then I buy another. Kind of like a disposable lighter. They last as long as anything else I have tried.
I bought a cheap black and Decker about a month ago. Sometimes it works. Sometimes its a democrat. So I bought another one.

Grandson come in right at dark with 10 bass. I grabbed the new knife straight from the box and stuck it to the first fish. It lit me up! Couldn't let go of the trigger. Normally I use a 100ft extension cord but tonight I plugged into a little 6ft cord.

My wife got zapped once while helping fillet some fish about 20 years ago but I've never been zapped. In the old days I made sure my knife hand stayed dry and still do today but I also wear some disposable gloves from Harbor Freight. Started using them in the winter months so my hands would stay dry and warmer and decided what the heck. They keep the knife hand dry plus keeps the other hand slime free and makes clean up so much easier I wear them all year when I'm filleting now.

I tried the knife again today. Definitely something wrong with it.
I zip tied the trigger down and put a meter on the blades. 89 volts on the blades.
I like me some fresh fish but I want to wash it before I cook it.

My ex-father in law used to take a pair of angle cutters and cut the rib bones along the backbone on a large fish such as a red. Black Drum have even thicker rib bones. Once the ribs are cut through, the filleting is easy.
