This Karahawk model comes in a blackout style with black blade, handle and hardware. The Karahawk is an evolved folding version of the Southeast Asian karambit. Its VG-10 steel hawkbill blade is outfitted with Emerson's patented Wave Opening Feature along with a thumb hole, so opening is simple and fast. The black G-10 handle has stainless steel liners and a strong back lock mechanism. The Karahawk has a reversible tip-up carry pocket clip. The handle features a ring at the back end to facilitate traditional karambit manipulation techniques and is sized to keep the knife compact and easy to carry.

Saved my a#@ one night

Very good construction. I wish it was a bit thicker in the handle and came with a deep pocket clip. The wave feature brings it closer to perfection though. I don't understand why all pocket folding karambits don't have a wave feature. Having to flip a karambit is counter-intuitive to its purpose and how its to be used. I own the original satin one but it makes itself too obvious. I ran and bought this when it can out in all black. When Im not carrying my harpy (which is never) I carry this and feel confident if i get in a jam. I did once, it worked perfect.

I own a ridiculous amount of folders and fixed blades I can finally say, I've found my perfect daily carry. It's light, well balanced, and deploys easier then the other guys. I recommend adding the Allan Putnam scales as well.
