10YT <> Gotcha. I assumed South Florida.

I don't like filetting bottom fish w/a suji. I'll use mine on fish with backbones that don't reach up to the dorsal like Tuna & Salmon, but still not a true fan. I use my Western Deba<-- link in filet capacities when I need length.

10YT, I have one in the works from Lamson currently :) 11" blade, poly handle. Trying to work out the details currently, but it may be a few months or more if you can wait that long!

Prototype with Desert Ironwood handle. End ones will have pretty much the same profile, but with a Poly molded handle in Blaze Orange to keep the cost down vs the Western style handle. AEB-L Stainless steel blade. Also doing a 9" and 7", too.

In the mean time, I use a large Mioroshi Deba (240mm) on the big fish if I don't have the fillet knife prototypes on me for big fish. Only got Offshore once this year though :(

Taz that is exactly the profile I was looking for.the molded handle and good
steel is very hard to find.I think there is huge market for a blade like that for the offshore crowd. Thanks Wolf

These were designed by some guys I know down in Tx for the Offshore long range trips. Blaze Orange handle to make it visible (you can drill thru the handle at the butt end to put a cord loop on it to attach a leash so you don't drop it overboard), good stainless at a good rockwell for edge holding. Stiff blades, too...a little flex, but not too much on the bigger 2, very little flex on the 7".

This might be a little small for you but otherwise the steel and the handle would be perfect .

As much as I hate it... A lot of my fellow cooks use something like this Victorionox knife to take out blood lines out of tuna and skin large fillets like on Salmon and Halibut. It is long and thin so works well. Next best thing may be the Richmond Cimitar, but that is still shorter than the granton slicer.
