KATSU & Nemoto Knives Collaboration

KATSU partnered with Nemoto Knives, one of the most popular knife designers in Japan, to produce a line of products.

This time we bring you this brand new artwork- Axis Lock Tactical Folding Axe(hatchet).

All the Nemoto knives are designed based upon the background in which Mr. Nemoto Tomoyuki served at JSDF(Japan Self Defense Force) as a para-trooper.


About This Folding Tactical Axe

Another patented product with a brand new mecha style design!

Nemoto Knives is dedicated to “outside the box thinking” in knife design. As known, hatchets and axes can be a pain to store and carry. This folding axe features a metal bodied frame with titanium coating, and folds up like a knife for easy and safe carrying and storage. It fills a niche between multi-use chopping blades and dedicated wood splitting tools.

That's exactly what it'll do on your next camping trip!


  • Axis Lock

The Axis system works using a small, hardened spring loaded bar that moves back and forth in a slot made into both steel liners.

Due to its integrated build, the Axis allows for ambidextrous operation easily and quickly. In addition, its overall construction allows for even greater engagement with the tang as the knife is in use.

Overall, the Axis mechanism allows for quick and secure deployment of the blade, improving the strength of a typical folding knife with this construction.

  • multipurpose bolt

The multipurpose bolt can be used as a glass breaker, which also can be quickly assembled on the blade to reinforced it well and safe. 

  • Carbon Fiber Pattern Tactical Nylon Case

A tactical nylon case with carbon fiber pattern holds your knife perfectly. It is the perfect tool no matter for Collection Display or for Carrying Out Field Activities. Specifications

    Our knives are built to last. Cleaning and caring for your knife will maintain performance and enhance the life of your knife.

    Tips for Caring Folding Knives
    • Keep your knife dry; that means the entire knife, not just the blade.
    • Keep your knife clean, particularly moving parts and locking devices.
    • Keep your knife oiled; especially pivot points and the blade. Oil at least twice a year.
    • Keep your knife sharp; a sharp blade is safer than a dull one.
    • Again, store your knife in a dry place.
    Tips for Caring Kitchen Knives
    • Always use an appropriate cutting board in the kitchen to get the most out of the sharpness of your knives.
    • Cleaning knives after each use will keep them in the best condition and promote food safety.
    • Knives require a safe dry storage place, and a knife block is perfect for storing knives.

    Exactly what I was expecting, good quality.

    It was a gift for my partner and she loves it. After looking at reviews I thought I knew what to expect and it did not disappoint. If you are a holster person it is also good quality.

    Molto positivo per l’ascia, ma il trasporto molto lunghi

    Best customer service ever

    I don't do reviews, but had to comment on the customer service I received from Katsu. Canada has ridiculous restrictions on anything with a sharp edge - Katsu let me know there may an issue at Canada customs and gave me the opportunity to refund my order. I received the folding axe in perfect condition and since then have looking for shit to chop with this thing! Solid, tight and sharp edge on the D2 steel. If you are reading this review, you want one, so just buy it as you will love it. Thanks again to everyone at KATSU for answering all my emails.
