Katsu Collaberated With Nemoto Knives on a New Fixed Blade

The Katsu FB01is Available for Pre-order

Overall Length:12.2″
Blade Length7.3″
Handle Material:G-10
Blade Material:SLD-MAGIC

Katsu, a renowned Japanese knifemaker, has recently announced the introduction of a fixed blade knife. While the company has primarily focused on the design and fabrication of pocket knives and kitchen cutlery, this announcement demonstrates Katsu’s intent to diversify its product line. This is not the first time that Katsu has collaborated with Nemoto on a knife design, having previously partnered on the CZ01 and KS01 pocket folders.

The FB01 marks a new direction for Katsu as it is the first outdoor fixed blade the company has manufactured.

The FB01 boasts an SLD-MAGIC steel blade which is a steel we have no experience with here at Nothing But Knives. We are curious about it though, so we may have to pull the trigger on this knife and write a review.

The design of the FB01 suggests that Katsu is targeting the burgeoning tactical/survival knife hybrid market, for which there seems to be an insatiable demand, presenting a promising opportunity for Katsu to make an impact with the FB01.

The FB01 is currently available for pre-order at a discounted price.

Ben started a twenty year commercial photography career after a blurry stint in the navy. He spent a lot of time losing and breaking knives and other EDC gear on location shoots before starting Nothing But Knives. He has reviewed and tested hundreds of both outdoor and kitchen knives over the course of the last six years, and he was mostly sober while testing and reviewing.
