Great design but not worth the price

Love blade hq and nothing against them. This knife is definitely awesome in its design but not really impressive with fit and finish. The edges of the handle are all raised along the edge and the coating is a little spotty. Itís minor but you can see it and definitely feel it. I hope I just got a bad one because if all of them are like this than thatís just disappointing. Under the pocket clip is a hole in the handle that collects dirt and hooks on your pocket that makes it hard to get to quickly and that defeats the purpose of a tactical knife that gets caught on pockets. My advice is to check one out before you buy to see if you like it because $200 for a crkt thatís made overseas is a little outrageous.
Absolutely unique and amazing!!!

I love BladeHQ!!!! I have purchased a few tools from BladeHQ and have never been let down! I am always impressed with the fast delivery!!!! Every blade bought has been awesome. The prices are the BEST! Unless buying bulk or used. This karambit is so unique and I LOVE IT!!! Definitely going to EDC it for a while. I just received it today so still need to see how all the joints and pivots hold up over time. Only time will tell but I have been wanting this blade since I saw it and finally purchased after talking myself into it. The reason I had to talk myself into it was the price. There are so many amazing tried and true blades out there I could of spent $200 on but there are not many this unique. I feel Iím going to love it just as long as the hardware at the pivot points do not come loose. Fingers crossed this is going to be an EDC for a long time!!!! Again I love BladeHQ and will purchase more blades soon. Definitely recommend to any knife lover!!!!!
CRKT NAILS IT WITH THE FIT AND FINISH!

Feels great in my hand. the thumb motion is solid. im able to open and retract with one hand. the hole is perfect sized. not too big not too small. it has enough room to rotate on your index 360 degrees without hurting or cutting up your finger.

My pants are ripped because i followed the video that caswell posted on his youtube and crkt's site. clip all the way down the opening of the pocket like most knives. as of now i can say they probably did not try to deploy the blade when they pulled it from their pocket. theres no way to reach the knife ring or be able to pull it out beacause the ring is covered and the clip is now snagged with your pants on a corner under the clip.

so i've come to the conclusion that the knife ring must be shown from the pocket in order for proper blade deployment. the nub where we put our thumb and the corner of where the pocket meets the pants is the sweet spot. depending on what your pocket cut it you have to go in the direction the crease is going.

you'll figure it out. just be mindful of the pocket line and your body parts will be intact forever looool

This thing is pretty awesome. Caswell has a great design, here. Fit & finish is great. Mine has zero play in it. Easy to deploy. Locks up tight. Disengages easily. Blade is sharper than average. Comfortable to grip (open & closed). One complaint- the pocket clip will pinch your pocket if you push the knife too far in. At first, I thought my pants were snagging on the clip screws, but it's definitely the clip pinching. Feeks like it will tear your pants off before you'll get it out. Don't know how it could be remedied with the inset clip design, but it's an issue. Still give this knife 5 stars. It's worth the money as far as I'm concerned.
Get it

110% cool factor. It takes a couple of try's to master the open/close functions. Scary!
I like it but a few issues

Very interesting knife. Very sharp blade and a very smooth folding design. I have 2 suggestions, both are in regards to the pocket clip. Not sure if it was just mine but the titanium ring seems undersized for the location. The backside of the ring that i assume in design would never have contact with the user has not been rounded leading to a sharp edge rubbing on your finger. The other problem is that the hardware used on the clip is raised, and with the design of the clip it pinches clothing making it hard to pull out of the pocket or easy to tear. I solved both issues by simply taking my pocket clip off.
Sturdy build unique mechanism

Well made, smooth action except for the locking mechanism. Not sure if there is debris or something off in the machining, it is hard to disengage the lock. Sometime it opens and other times pushing the lock bar with a lot of force and it will not unlock.
Other than the lock fit and finish seem excellent and I am happy with this knife
