When it comes to fishing the mountain lakes of Montana's backcountry, weight becomes a serious factor on those long hikes to solitude. We scaled down our Blackfoot Fillet to this handy new Alpine Fillet and we can't wait to get it to work. The blade is forged from 5160 spring steel with a functional flex. It measures 5" from tip to guard with a razor sharp convex grind too. The nickel silver guard is soldered in place above black and maroon fiber, green micarta, aluminum and copper spacers as well as a premium sambar stag that's pinned with aluminum. The overall length measures just under 9 3/8" and it comes in a classic pouch sheath from Warlander Leather.
