Great Karambit
I use this as a backup knife on duty. The teeth on the spine are great to utilize like the Emerson wave. Deployment is very fast and efficient. The blade could be sharper from the factory, but the point is like a needle. The D2 steel was easy enough to get razor sharp with a honing steel. I keep both pocket clips attached so I can use in either right or left pockets. It is the import line so not as fancy as the titanium scaled model...but it is a knife you can use with great efficacy and speed. Highly recommended if you want a quality folding karambit at a very good price point.

Worth Trying
The fit and finish are nice, decent sharpness out of the box, lockup is solid, all in all it's a good knife. This isn't a general purpose EDC, it's probably about the last knife I would pull out for food prep, etc. It is excellent at ripping slices like most hawkbills, and that 90 degree offset from the palm really lets you lean in and through cuts. The handle is large and a bit chunky, it takes a lot of space for in-pocket carry. I find the shape forces my hand into only one grip for tip up and one for tip down. It's not a big issue since it's intuitive to index, very effective once it's there, and really locks into the hand. The blade rockets out when those teeth on the spine catch on clothing during a waved opening. They are actually pretty sharp, I can see that they will chew threw cloth pretty quickly. The blade only travels through a roughly 100 degree arc, unlike a traditional folder where the blade travels a full 180--so it snaps out FAST. If you don't want to wave it open to spare your pocket, the flipper tab is mostly vestigial and hard to use. This is probably the best karambit for the price out there. It's solidly made, holds an edge, and the design makes it highly improbable that I would lose a finger if the spine got a hard whack. This one is totally worth it.
