It bonks! Nicely. It cuts! Safely. It cleans! Efficiently. It sharpens! Er...sharply. And it floats.
The Kombo Fish is a rugged, seafood-dinner-centric multi-tool that hopes to become an invaluable part of your tackle box on the lake, river, or ocean.
The bonk: Kombo Fish tools are made of industrial grade polypropylene and filled with 3 stainless steel weights at their "bonking" end. The company says it packs a "quick and painless" punch that will kill your catch quickly and in the most humane way possible.
The cut: A fillet knife fitted inside the tool features a handle made of Thermoplastic Rubber and a blade of high quality, but flexible 3CR13 Japanese stainless steel. Grips will be taut and cuts smooth as a toadfish's belly. (Note: Don't use the Kombo Fish tool to fillet a smooth toadfish. It is highly poisonous and eating one imparts toxins that will F you up in the head.)
The clean: Kombo includes a cleaning spoon on the back of the knife, designed especially for the dirty work. Scrape out the spine, blood, and other gutty fish parts quickly and without switching or soiling another tool.
The sharpen: Built into the bonking end, Kombo's sharpener keeps the fillet knife's blade honed and fresh for the next catch.
And it floats. Overboard wamp, wamps averted.
I would say it depends on how solidly the knife fits in the bonker part and how efficiently the knife works when out of the bonker.
I've been trying to snag one of the older bonker type knives from the 1950's or there about that are made of a steel billy with a knife that screws into the handle. The things are really quite useless in my opinion but I do enjoy the gadgety nature of the device. Some day I will own one of the steel ones ... some day.
I am going to say this one is useful
Are you a wine drinker? Make good use of your corks and turn them into lures for bass fishing. Simply cut the cork lengthwise with a sharp knife, stopping before you cross the mid-point, then insert a long fishing hook into the cut before gluing it all back together. You can also decorate your cork with paint or googly eyes to make it a more attractive sight for fish.
