Hey guys, I am new to fish filleting, and learned how to do it for the first time this past November. I've filleted a bit since then, however usually when going out with the guys. I would borrow one of their fillet knives and go to work. I will be going by myself in a few days, and don't have a fillet knife, nor the funds to purchase one (X-mas shopping totally wiped me out). However, I was throwing away a bunch of old kitchen ware, and came across a set of steak knives. Nothing expensive. However, I was looking it and it was about the same length and shape at the fillet knives I used. There were some longer ones, but I used a few the same size as this steak knife. Plus this knife still has sharp serrations, so it is pretty darn sharp So my question, since I have never used one for this, can one use a serrated knife for fish filleting? Will it cause a mess of the meat?
