Let's just say.............I wouldn't want to be forced to defend myself against an attacker who is wielding a karambit.
There is nothing "specialized" about this weapon. In fact, it is the best knife I could think of for an untrained individual...all the movenemts are simple, natural, and highly logical.
Are there actually any authentic mass produced Kerambits out there?
They are supposed to be double-edged but i can never find any.
As far as double edged karambits go..........Richard Derespina is a custom maker that produces mostly double edged karambits. Do a search for his blades.
