This is the 6 inch version of the original 9 inch Kermode. We’ve kept the handle the same but reworked the blade for those who like to fillet with a smaller knife. Its shorter length and narrower width make it great for cutting smaller fish or for those who prefer a short blade for large fish. With the updated surface finish and now offered in MagnaCut steel, the blade resists corrosion, chipping and edge wear even better than the original version. We have also tweaked the grind on the knife to add a little more flex, based on user feedback.
The knife takes its name from the creamy-white coated Kermode, or Spirit Bear, a sub-species of the black bear that is native to the BC coastal region. It has been found that in daylight the Kermode is 30 percent more efficient at fishing than regular black bears because its reduced contrast with the sky makes it less visible to fish.
