Practical edc

Just a big lovely stretch of [email protected]$& off knife. This thing is an absolutely monster of a knife and completely unnecessary for just about everything I would need a knife for. That said it is probably the best knife if you need to kill the shit out of something. Get 2, God gave you two hands for a reason!

Absolutely the best Karambit money can buy.

Best Fighting Karambit PERIOD!
Tina H. on Jan 6, 2018

First off, just look at the thing, it is probably the scariest looking knife ever made. The knife arrived paper shaving sharp and the tip was so fine just touching it would break skin. This knife is made for one thing and one thing only; fighting, I have tested it on some 1-gallon jugs and it goes right through like they are even there, also he little secondary edge on the back works very well too. I likely won’t ever need to use it but if I do I know it will deliver. If you want a scary looking fighting knife look no further.

Best Karambit Ever
Vincent N. on Mar 13, 2018

I love the length of the blade, the finish is high quality and the sheath is high quality and retains the knife amazingly. I also love the sharpened clip point on the back of the blade. It gives the knife so many options for wielding with out it being a full edge where you can cut yourself on it like I did when trying to draw the Schrade Shasta Mc'Nasty Karambit. This knife is perfect.

The blade is very stylish, but worth the price?
Malcolm C. on Jan 27, 2019

the blade is heavier than you might use traditional fighting karambits for, and the quality of the knife isnt quite what id want. because of the hardness of the steel, the extremely fine and sharp tip broke from a missed impact. not much, about a couple millimeters. The knife feels a bit gimmicky and "tacticool" in a way. but these features arnt inherently bad. the spike on the back is a catch for pinching wrists, simple but nice to have on a fighting knife. The reverse edge is a very nice feature, its angle is in a good spot, but it needs to be sharpened, it was not sharp on delivery. the front of the blade was extremely sharp, and retains its edge quite well, as expected of high carbon steel. A lot of the knife i dont find bad, but with the price i have higher expectations, expecially in competition of the Fox karambit with Emerson wave, and better construction.
