KRKMAN910: MANIKOMIO Fixed Blade
Louis Krudo's father was the inspiration for this design as well as the name of MANIKOMIO. His father Salvadore, Sal for short, had an endearing nickname that only his closest friends were allowed to call him; "Manikomio". Sal had a great sense of humor, was highly energetic, willing to take on a friendly dare, was extremely brave and respected in his circles. Louis' father still influences his work and his life.
The MANIKOMIO Fixed Blade is the first fixed blade of this size that Louis Krudo has added to his line up in recent years. Since the first fixed blades - RAW, MMF, and HAIKU - Krudo has placed nearly all of his designing attention on folders. When he was asked to design a field knife, the MANIKOMIO was conceived. You will see the strong resemblance to the Krudo DRASTIK folder as the design of the Roman gladius sword inspired both blades.
The name MANIKOMIO refers to an insane asylum. This blade is insanely sleek and, with its all-black elements, insanely stealth. There is a hint of red accentuating the knife handle that is the signature Krudo Knives red. This double edge blade sports bilateral serrations with a centerline blood groove.
Krudo designed this knife with a slight radius to the scales, a double-sided guard, and a longer than average handle length. The black Kydex sheath is attached to a black nylon belt system which can be easily removed and replaced with the carry system of your choice. Use this knife in the field, camping, hunting and any outdoor activities where you need a serious blade. The MANIKOMIO is a dependable blade - all business, yet stylish.
All aspects of the production of Krudo Knives designs are overseen by Louis Krudo — relentlessly, meticulously, verging on OCD, mixed with odd hours and lots of hot coffee. The MANIKOMIO was built in China and hands-on, quality-controlled in Cave Creek, AZ, USA.
