"Knives are like credit cards. Don't leave home without 'em and always carry several." - Richard Marcinko
The Comprehensive Fighting Systems Active Response Kerambit - Reverse ARK is built for the same purpose as its similarly profiled namesake, the original CFS Active Response Kerambit. Unlike the original ARK karambit, the Reverse ARK features a shape more akin to a traditional straight blade, with the important addition of a safety ring and ergonomic handle designed for easy palming and open-handed use.
The Reverse ARK's razor sharp blade does have a very slight curve but looks more like a fixed blade non-curved knife. The Reverse ARK offers the same functionality as the original ARK -- it can be used in conjunction with a firearm or flashlight to increase primary weapon retention.
