Larger Karambit
Richard G.
I bought this knife in a set with the trainer. I was interested on how Karambits feel when practicing martial arts. I donít see ever using this knife for EDC because 1) this knife is seriously intimidating to normies and 2) itís blade shape to me feels really tactical. Sure I can use it to open boxes and letters but I feel like thatís kind of caging a wild animal. Also, the blade is actually pretty thin and I feel like any hard use would chip the tip. But this also means that this thing is scary sharp (definitely the sharpest knife I own).

Amazing knife, a few problems
Andrew H.
The Ergonomics are made for a slightly bigger hand than mine. I am confident that someone with bigger hands will handle it just fine though. The finger ring works perfectly. The G-10 is very gritty (it becomes difficult to pull it out of my pocket and put in my pocket). Fit and finish is perfect. The hawkbill blade is great for cutting about anything. The first problem occurred to me when I tried to wave it open. The pivot was so stiff that I could barely wrist flick it open from a half opened position. I put some lube in it and then it worked fine. Despite the lube, the pivot is still so stiff that the flipper is basically useless. (the stiffness is where this knife loses the fifth star) The last issue is not a real problem, but rather personal preference. Karambits are not so straight. The Fox 479 is obviously curved like a karambit but less severely. Fixed blade karambits seem to make a near 90 degree angle with the handle and this knife does not carry that severity of a traditional karambit. Not a real problem just preference.
Wow this is the one

I have 6 karambits. Got this one today. Will order another. I love fox/bastinelli creations. As a knife maker it pushes me in a good way. Keep going
So good I bought Two. Lefty, Righty

Super Sharp and not too hard to keep them that way. I bought a pair because I use them Utility as well as for defense. Best box cutters ever, though I doubt Fox would appreciate my use of them as a box cutter, yet they are very good as one of my EDC's. Never have less then three different blades on me. Not trying to show off as a Chuck Norris or anything, but you don't use a hammer to drive screws. So, different blades for different duties.The only slight drawback is the weight. It's a heavy knife. Maybe twice as heavy as my Benchmade 2550. One more notch in the belt will do you if you carry a pair. Anyway, a great knife, intimidating, no doubt dangerous and sexy. I great great buy.

I love this knife. It's extremely comfortable and ergonomic. The wave feature works great and it's very smooth. This thing can tear stuff to shreds with ease. I will say, however, that the pocket clip with the rough textured G10 makes for a very sturdy and reliable grip on your pocket but it can definitely tear up your pockets with enough use. Also, I found that the lockup isn't the best. It has a little play side to side but too much for back and forth. I bought mine used so I'm sure that won't be a problem with the new models but it's just something to consider for long time use. Other than that, if you're in the market for a stand out karambit that it's just phenomenal then this is for you.
