Not your typical fillet knife. This one is made to hold its edge a long time. Read more



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 on big fish or who just prefer less length when working with smaller fish. With its shorter length and narrower width, this model can also be used comfortably as a boning knife.

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.

  • made with CPM S35VN blade steel for superb edge retention. The blade is available with our standard CNC finish.
  • The Kermode 6" comes with a Kydex sheath and either the standard length belt loop or, optionally, an extended length loop to allow it to carry a bit lower, out of the way of hip straps.
  • standard G10 handle. G10 is incredibly rugged, waterproof and highly stain resistant. Optional fancy carbon fiber handle option. CF is very similar to G10 in durability and water-proofness. The G10 scales have a pattern on the handle for extra grip while the CF scales are left smooth.
  • This is the brief info sheet we include in the box with the Kermode 6". For further information on care and sharpening look at the pages under the "knife care" tab on the menu bar.

  1. Kelly

    Love the look and feel of this BC made knife. Primarily fish trout and kokanee, and this knife deals with ease. Probably best to sharpen once in awhile I know, but I’ve gone 3 seasons without any maintenance and it’s still razor sharp. Great from Mike and the crew at North Arm. As mentioned by others, you won’t be disappointed.

    After using low cost fillet knives for years, I purchased a Kermode. I have used it primarily to clean and cut up surf perch and albacore. I must say it completely out-performs any previous fillet knife I have owned and holds an edge very well. It costs more but at this pace it will last for a long, long time.

    I purchased my Kermode 6” this past winter and easily cleaned over fifty Bluegills. The Kermode is still as sharp as the day it arrived. The handle fits my hand like a glove and the stiffness of the blade is superb for filleting. If your looking for a quality fillet knife look no further than a North Arm Kermode you won’t be disappointed.
