In my opinion, the relatively extreme curvature of the blade makes it ideal for a reverse grip, but that may not be to all tastes.
Really, this is very easy to recommend to anyone at this price point, both as a high quality utility knife, and for self defense.
That being said, I've since purchased an Emerson, and there is just no comparison.
In the end, if you're thinking of a big purchase, or want a solid knife you can depend on, this a great choice.
NOTE: It's not huge, but if you have small hands this knife isn't for you.
PROS: It's amazing. Awesome grip. Perfect shape. Light weight. Reversible belt clip. Cool color!
CONS: I can't find any... buy one.
The overall weight and feel of the knife is perfect for me; It feels ergonomic in my hand and has a nice balanced weight. The pocket clip, although it can be switched to either side, can feel rather cumbersome when performing the standard flips and will graze your thumb/hand depending upon the angle of said flip. The latter is a minor annoyance and, if it were to become anything more than an annoyance, I could simply remove the clip altogether. In addition, it would be nice to be able to invert the clip so that it could be deployed tip down as there is no wave on the blade, thus making it difficult to fully deploy the blade in the tip up fashion.
The blade curve is more acute than I am used to and would make for a difficult trapping blade if using a reverse grip with the blade pointing toward you. The angle and curve of the blade, when held in a reverse, reverse grip (safety ring at index finger with blade at the rear of the hand, pointing back toward your wrist) will not allow for much room to trap an arm or wrist easily in an altercation. Given, one needs to be adroit in the full use of a karambit in order to be able to switch the blade around to perform said trap, but still something to consider if you intend to use this knife for self defense.
Overall, this is a phenomenal karambit folder, especially given what you get for the price. Will I pick up a Fox or Emerson at some point? Probably. However, for my needs right now, this is a really solid karambit. Tarani knows his craft well.
sold one to a buddy who was deploying, and got another.
have one at home, and one at my office for when i travel.
handy blade, and is S30V.
little thin on the blade and grip but thats ok.
- very sturdy build, well made
- high quality steel at decent price
- solid karambit design
- lacks Emerson-wave type feature for quick deployment
- finger hole is rather large
For these 2 reasons I give this 4 stars rather than 5. A wave feature and a slightly smaller finger hole and this would corner the market
