McDaniels Knives Lycan Karambit
"Lycans display inhuman physical strength, speed, reflexes, endurance and agility." 
Handmade. Multi-edged. Exceptional.

Lycan: Wolf? Human? At the end of the day, it doesn't matter, because they're unmatched warriors in close quarters combat. With a sharply curved blade resembling a fang, the Lycan karambit is designed for one thing: tearing, ripping, slicing and cutting with ease. The inside edge of the 4" blade is fully sharpened and the outside edge is sharpened only on the backblade, which allows the Lycan to be used not only for tactical applications, but also as a utility blade. The Lycan's design readily lends itself to search and rescue, first responder and field medical use, since the unsharpened portion of the outside edge can be used in an emergency (by sliding the blade in unsharpened side to skin, then turning it to utilize the sharpened inside curve) to cut off clothing, bandages or bindings without fear of injuring a patient further. The tight curve allows the Lycan to slice through even heavy materials with ease and without the item sliding off the blade, which is an issue encountered with straight blades. 

Whether the Lycan is working hard as an EDC, saving the life of the one who carries it or it's saving the lives of those under their care, its expert craftsmanship and durability will continue to prove itself year after year. Add an inhuman edge to your toolbox: carry the McDaniel's Lycan Karambit. 


DS93X Damasteel is a powder metallurgy Damascus steel. It is made from two different hardenable steel grades (RWL34 and PMC27). The two alloys are fused on smelting in more than 100 layers with no transition band and can therefore be regarded as a solid piece of steel before further processing. Further processing (creation of the pattern) is carried out in the same way as in traditional Damascus steel production. Soft annealed for easy processing. The steel becomes stainless after heat treatment. Hardenable up to 64 HRC.

If either should ever occur (and it never has before), he will repair or replace it free of charge.
