Katz Knives: The Katz Knife line, founded in 1991 features Keith Derkatz designs.
Katz Knives was founded in 1991 by Keith Derkatz. All Katz knives are designed by Mr. Derkatz, and are made in Japan by high quality manufacturers. The Katz Knife line includes hunting knives, lock back folding knives, linerlock folding knives and money clip knives. The blades of all Katz Knives are made of one of two types of proprietary steel: XT70 stainless steel, that tests out at 54-55 on the Rockwell "C" scale, or XT80 stainless steel, that tests out at 58-59 on the Rockwell "C" scale. With the resilience of these excellent stainless steels, the blades hold and retain an edge to the high standard for which Katz is known.
The Katz Knives hunting line includes the Lion King, Wild Kat, and Black Kat Series fixed blade hunting knives. The Katz Knives hunting knives have full tang construction for strength, and contoured handles that are flared at the butt for exceptional balance and control. The blades are a full 5mm thick, making these knives among the strongest in the industry today.
The new Alley Kat series features fixed blade tactical designs with blood groove and black Kraton handles. The Avenger series fixed blades feature a double edge Boot knife and also a Divers model.
The Katz Cheetah Series Knives are lock back folders with ambidextrous one hand opening thumb stud. Available in choice of White Micarta, Cherrywood, or Kraton handles.
The Katz Bob Kat Series Money Clip Knives are available with Cherrywood or Carbon Fiber handles.
The Kagemusha Linerlock Series includes a small folding knife (with black Kraton handle) as well as larger folder with the exclusive Ninja-Point blade. The larger folder is available with black Kraton, Cherrywood and Ivory Micarta handles.
We are very proud to offer this fine lineup of cutlery, and invite you to experience the Katz difference!
