    The blade is a bit stubby, and the edge grind was a touch rough. However, it's double edge, ergonomic, compact, plus has an excellent sheath, good coating, and quality steel/temper. Will take a ferocious edge. Most karambits aren't half as good.

    Almost perfect

    I really like the blade but the sheath is a little loose for my liking. That was actually one of the main reasons I bought this blade. I put IBW loops on it but I just don’t trust it I might put it on a bug out bag or in one not sure.

    Birthday Gift for Husband... Nailed it!!!

    Posted by Danielle Peters on Apr 13th 2017

    Purchased this as a gift for my husband because he has been wanting a Karambit. I did a lot of research before decided upon this one. I wanted something durable and well crafted, preferred USA made. This knife is absolutely perfect. He loves the feel of how well it fits in his hand. The blade's precision and uniformity is a beauty. The sheath is great, has a great snap feature that allows you to know it's securely inside. We will definitely be purchased more from this maker. Great work and prompt communication and shipping. Very Very Pleased! Thanks so much!

    Great karambit for every day carry.

    This thing is built to last. Time tested steel, rugged coating, and tough kydex sheath. Good blade geometry with crisp even lines, and symmetrical edge grind. Slim profile, light weight, and easy to carry discreetly in a pocket or on the belt. The handle and ring are just about the perfect size. Other karambit I own are too small for my hand, but this one feels great in hand. I love the sheath, not too bulky or over engineered like so many other knife sheaths on the market. Just a practical, functional sheath that holds the knife very securely. One more thing I would like to say is that ShadowTech has excellent customer service. I will definitely be buying more ShadowTech blades in the future.
