Default American Angler Ultra or MT3 Fillet Knife?

I was going to buy an Amer.Angler Ultra when I happened to notice their MT3 model for just ten bucks more. Looks like its built a lot better with the metal gearing. Has a different style blade also.

I'm looking for an all-around electric fillet knife that won't burn out on the salmon I fillet, yet can also handle panfish without being so aggressive it mangles them. Does anyone know how the MT3 performs in comparison to the Ultra?

Forget MT3 fillet knife. Tried one, broke first time. Returned for replacement, broke second time used. Returned for refund and bought cheap WalMart. Works ok, but not very strong.

I'm with vetspet -
I work at a camp and see all the electrics in use - some are better than others, mostly in ergonomics, but definately not worth the extra $$$.
I cleaned over 1000 fish last summer (pike/walleye) and went through four wal-mart $9 electric knives. When they stop working, save the blades and throw the rest out. Although they may not look pretty, they work just as good as the high priced ones.
In my opinion, based on what I used and observed, save your money and buy the cheap ones.

I have used the American Angler for several years with great luck. In fact haven't thrown one out yet. I know, how many fish do I fillet?? Put it this way, I get plenty. Skeeter

I've spent most of my life fishing. The rest of it I wasted!
