Fish scaler are for removing scales from whole fish. The one
in the image I have will trap all the scale in a chamber which
can be dump out when finished or full, comes with a slide out
The two sided serrated blade allow for right or left handed
user. This one is made of cast metal, worked with me for almost
10 years. Today they were made of hi-impact plastic fish scalers.
The conventional fish scalers are very messy, the scales fly
all over the kitchen floor and stuck to the wall.
Cleaning fish is a mess especially the scaling part. Best let
the fish monger do the job for you.
Now a days you can get a electric fish scaler or automatic fish
scaler. Unless you do alot of fishing is worth getting one.
Make life easier.
To scaled fish, hold the tail firmly and brush the scaler against
the fish scales.
The conventional fish scaler, best scaled the fish in a large
enough plastic bag. The bag will trap the flying scales. Good
