Fox Knives Panabas Tactical Survival Fixed Blade Knife FKMD Panabus


Fox Knives Panabas (also known as Panabus; incorrectly!) is a tactical/survival knife made under the Fox Knives Military Division (FKMD). It is manufactured in Maniago, the holy Mecca of Italian cutlery. So there's no surprise this knife is of the highest quality and craftsmanship. 


The Panabas is designed purely for tactical use and survival situations. It features an ultra-ergonomic handle and blade design. The Panabas sports a decent sized blade with a large belly and a stout tip. The Panabas is a capable chopper due to its thick and wide blade and also being very front heavy. At the same time, it can handle fine cutting tasks with ease, thanks to its large finger choil. Interestingly, the knife's weight is balanced exactly at the finger choil which makes choking on the blade very comfortable. 


The blade is made of Bohler N690, a well-balanced steel perfect for outdoor applications. N690 steel can take a very fine edge and withstand a good amount of abuse. It is also very easy to sharpen and touch up the edge in the field. N690 features outstanding corrosion resistance, on top of that the blade is black coated to enhanced corrosion resistance even further.


The Handle is very comfortable and ergonomic. It is made of Forprene an extremely resilient and durable thermoplastic. Forprene is chemical and abrasive resistance and features high thermal insulation. Forprene is also tacky/grippy and will perform well in wet conditions. 


The Panabas comes with a black 1000D Nylon sheath which is fully MOLLE compatible and has a detachable belt loop section.
