 This beautiful karambit is single-edged and built to last with full-tang construction. It measures in at 7 5/8″ from the tip to the end of the ring. The blade is hand forged carbon spring steel with good temper, so it is tough and will hold an edge well. These karambits are built larger and heavier than the Javanese kind they are often based on.

The handle scales are Luzon kamagong heartwood (Philippines ebony), which is now illegal to harvest in the wild. Existing stocks of this wood are drying up and I don’t think kamagong will be seen on knife handles in a few years.

The sheath is mulawin, a beautiful Filipino hardwood, and kamagong on the other side. The clip is thick, folded aluminum and riveted on. There are a few scratches on the clip from storage in the Philippines, but it would be a five minute job with sandpaper to get it looking perfect again.

Both aluminum pins and epoxy are used in the construction of the handle, which will keep the scales where they should be.

The handle measures in at 4″, which only allows for a secure grip with your index or pinky finger inserted in the ring.

The blade is 4″ long along the bottom, when measured in a straight line. There are some tiny pits on the blade, and the edge isn’t as sharp as it could be.

The sheath fits well and offers a smooth draw. It will not hold the karambit when inverted, so you may want to tighten it up with cardboard or wood strips glued into the mouth of the sheath.

Please note there are some forge marks and tiny pits on the ring.

This karambit weighs in at 4.9 oz, or 8.2 oz with the sheath.

This is a great karambit, and excellent value at $105.
