The Shade from Real Steel Knives, is a small compact folding karambit knife designed for pocket carry. If you find yourself in the mindset of thinking karambit blades don't make for great EDC knives, you might want to consider the Shade from real steel. It is a karambit at heart, but built for the common man, who doesn't need to defend himself from the potentiality of a sudden ninja attack. It features a shorter, more shallow D2 tool steel blade, and blade hook. Giving the user a subtle hawkbill cutting edge. This makes for a great utility knife, allowing you to accomplish even the most extreme box opening tasks with ease. And incase you find yourself backed into a corner, the signet ring on the end of the handle will provide you with ample grip, and knife retention, as well as the grippy black G10 handle scales.

Customer Reviews

Love the ergonomics. Detent is poopy.
Clint E. on Dec 4, 2021

Even though I have large hands this knife fits well into my grip. Lovely blade curve, cuts things well. Downsides though is that the detent is WAY too extreme. Flicking with your thumb is quite difficult. The two nylon (?) washers tear up really easy. Edge retention is quite good on this one. Have had in my possession for 3 months and I'm just getting to where I feel it needs to be sharpened. I was able to make a small modification by scribing a small channel out of the detent hole to make it not as stiff. Works a treat, but they should really take the time to fix it in their design. With that said, this knife is easy to tear down and reassemble. Knife was used as a maintenance technician. Hard use applications of cutting 12-14 gauge solid copper wire, opening/breaking down cardboard boxes, cutting/carving drywall/wood/plastics.
