North America's best-known Crappie fisherman, Wally Marshall, has teamed up with Buck Knives to introduce the "Mr. Crappie by Buck Knives" brand of products.
Currently, the series is comprised of short fillets, medium fillets, and a diamond coated fishhook and knife sharpening Fishing FishPick. Each handle is in Wally's signature yellow featuring a rubberized or textured grip.
"Having the opportunity to work with such a great knife company is a dream come true," said Marshall. "Since I started working with the fine Buck employees one-on-one to build these superior fillet knives, I can tell they have the same intensity as I do about the Mr. Crappie by Buck Knives brand."
The fishing fillets are available in three blade lengths: 4″, 6″ and 6.5″. Each fillet is designed with a full tang structure with nylon and tactile feel overmold handle for a comfortable, secure, non-slip grip, and superior handling. An injection molded nylon sheath with drain holes is included with each fillet knife.
"We are very excited for the new Mr. Crappie line of fishing products," said Bob George, Director of Sales and Marketing for Buck Knives. "The strength behind the Mr. Crappie brand, combined with Buck Knives' industry knowledge, will be a great fit as we continue to expand into the fishing market."
