The Cattleman looks to have a little more belly on the blade compared to the K'roo.

Coach, I agree. We scale them, gut them, remove head, and put them in some corn meal/ flour mix. Then into the grease.
Good eating.

We use a grapefruit spoon to scale with and a sheepsfoot blade to de-fin, gut, and cut the heads off with.

I’m hoping that this knife can be both.

I never defin, after cooking, the fin pulls all the bones out. I only scale with a spoon, gut and take off the head. Fry crispy in cornmeal/flour/Tony's and when crispy, I eat the tail first. Pull the fins with the bones, then eat it like a corn cob.

Pappy,

Once when I was a kid, we had fried up some fish and I ran across one fish that had not been de-finned. I pulled the fin out and told my Dad that we didn’t need to de-fin ‘em any more.

Daddy finished the bite he was chewing on and then said: “We’ll keep on de-finnin’ ‘em. That cut gives the corn meal another place to git into.”

I reckon that old habits are just hard to break.

Walker (Shoot870p) just got one of Willem's K'roo knives and sent me a couple of pictures.

With his permission, I'm posting them on here.

I'll let him give a description.

Thanks for posting, coach.

This is a heavy knife for sure but it is well made!
