I came in with 5 stars for 3 reasons. (1) This knife is everything I expected and then some. It's fun to operate, rather like a deadly fidget spinner! It came razor-sharp out of the box, Excellent quality construction as well. The action is hypnotizing, and the knife has a surprising heft to it. I too had a bit of a time with the holster set up, but once I quit looking at the trees to see the forest it was intuitive, took me a while though. (2) Blade HQ Is once again THE place to come for all of your knife needs and desires. I have never had a bad experience with Blade HQ. Ever, and I have done quite a bit of business with them through the years. (3) The shipping was blisteringly fast. I was truly taken aback by the package arriving as soon as it did.

Deadly! I mean, it will save someone!

Need to eviscerate someone and don't have the proper tool? Look no further!

I had been thinking of purchasing a Karambit for quite some time. Stumbled across the Provoke on YouTube and knew immediately that it was the one. Also knew that Blade HQ was the place to go for the purchase. Not really happy with the holster setup. Should have had some directiions for assembly.
