Good size for fillet knife for fish?

bythebay | May 20, 201202:14 PM     18

I'm pretty new to eating seafood and so far have been buying fish that has already been deboned and filleted at the store. Now I'm looking for a fillet knife to try to do more of it on my own. I see plenty on Amazon that seem to be a good price and have good reviews, but I'm having trouble choosing, mainly because I'm not sure about size.

I guess I'm looking for something that will be the most universally useful, since right now I'm not sure what particular fish we may use it for since it's still so new to us and we've only tried a few kinds. We may also use it for fish we may catch in the future. Does anyone have any recommendations on size? Or does it even really make a difference what size it is?
