    Our Kermode fillet knife is now available in 4 colours of G10! We also just introduced Western Yew wood handles on both our outdoor knives.

    We make our knives 100% in Burnaby BC! The steel in these knives is significantly harder than most factory made knives resulting in excellent edge retention, which means less sharpening! For our full story, lots of useful knife related information or to purchase a knife visit our website.

    The Coho is an all purpose light to medium duty outdoor knife, perfect for many tasks, both in the field and around home. From dressing game to whittling a roasting stick to cutting up cardboard boxes. Made from CPM S35VN stainless steel, known for its excellent edge retention. Handle scales are available in two colours of G10 (fibreglass-epoxy laminate) : OD green or hunter orange. We now also offer western yew wood handles.

    Osprey:

    The Osprey is the bigger of our outdoor models, designed for medium and heavy duty cutting tasks. It is capable of the same lighter cutting jobs as our Coho but its blade geometry is aimed at more strenuous use. A 5.5" blade and grippy handle give this knife great balance and hand feel. Made from CPM S35VN stainless steel, known for its superior edge retention. Handle scales are available in three colours of G10 (fibreglass-epoxy laminate) : olive drab green, hunter orange and Camo. We now also offer western yew wood handles. Comes with a left or right handed Kydex sheath.

    John and Mike Gudmundson,

    I just received one of the best Christmas gifts ever...one of your North Arm Kormode Filet knives.

    It came from a great friend, also from this forum....Chilliwack's own T.K. aka "Hmmm" here.

    I can tell you, and anyone else reading this, that the quality is superb, and the photos and descriptions offered are woefully insufficient.
    The blade is keen and precise, and surgically even and sharp-- a Caveman or Sasquatch could safely, comfortably and effectively shave with it.

    The handle and the metal handle section are machined perfectly to fit each other--no rough or high spots, and a they're a perfect match; the rivets holding the knife together, as well as those on the sheath are beefy and permanent.

    When you slip the knife into the sheath, it has a couple of properly bent wings at the hilt to snap the knife in place,
    so even if you hold it upside down, the knife won't slide out.

    I am going to discard all the knives I'll never use again, as they pale in comparison to the fine tool you've created.

    I'll take hand-crafted goods over mass-produced every time, and I'd encourage anyone who wants the best knife they'll ever own to not only get one, but to challenge any of these claims.

    I'd be anxious to hear the take of guys who use knives daily as part of their jobs...all the guides--Nog, Tofino Guy, and ANYBODY who appreciates what a great knife does for them. My wife and I have a phenomenal German cooking knife set we got for a wedding present--I thought I'd never see or handle that kind of quality again, and you have at least matched, if not exceeded it.

    That TK had the blade engraved with my tag-line: "Be well, make friends, catch fish" makes it that much more special. And Scotty---thanks for contributing the fitting name--"Kormode" to this fine knife.

    I am going to follow T.K's lead, and gift a few special friends---a lodge owner or two-- with one of these great tools.

    Thanks gentlemen, thanks TK, and Merry Christmas and a healthy and Happy New Year to all.

    I Whole-Heartedly CONCUR Mike!

    Had the pleasure of being selected as one of the "Beta Testers" for this knife just before it went into production. After using it for numerous coho, halibut and several deer, this is what I had to say:

    "Both my main Hunting & Fishing Partner and I have used the knife a fair bit over the last while.
    In short, we are both Damn Impressed!
    Holds an edge seemingly forever (4 deer, a couple of halibut and a handful of coho without sharpening Yet!! Wicked!), feels very good in the hand and doesn't slip at all, the length is great, and the flexibility is perfect for filleting both salmon and hali's.

    Partner wants one with a fine wooden handle down the road. I likely will too. Not much I can suggest to change, methinks you have a Winner here!
    "

    I remain steadfast with that opinion! It is The Best fillet knife I have used to date, and I WILL soon be grabbing onto another for myself. The original will make it's way to the Big Rig where it will spend it's days doing what it is designed to (and doing it WELL) while the new one will remain at my side when wandering.

    You simply can't go wrong with one of these Folks! In my business we run through a great many knives looking for The One. In this case I am pleased to report we have found just that!!

    John & Mike - Many Thanks for such a Superior Product! Going to make my life easier out there on the briney! And Thanks for bringing in the wooden handle version! Can't wait to get my mitts on it!!

    Cheers,
    Nog

    And you use it more than the average bear, Nog. High praise from somebody who is hell on knives.

    I slid the blade of mine between the meat and skin of a Chinook fillet, and it separated it like magic.

    Can't wait to put it to the test of a full day of fishing....
    I can just visualize cleaning a box of bombers for ceviche, and doing it in just a few minutes,

    LOL! Not as much as my Partner is some days. Should have seen him deboning the deer with that knife! Like he was Determined to dull that Razor Edge by running it right tight to the bone! Didn't dull, and the Cleanest Deer Bones I've EVER Seen!

    Made Damn Short Work with the Hali's and coho too!

    Methinks we have a Winner!

    Cheers,
    Nog
