Interesting wood and pins.  Looks like a useful knife for its intended tasks.

Yes that is a nice one indeed.  Very unique for a filet knife.  Is there flex in the blade?

There is.  The steel started out as 1/16" thick and I thinned it quite a bit.  The heat treat is what allowe it to flex and return to straight.
