The Fox 479 Carbon Fiber Folding Karambit is the best self-defense tool and utility knife utilizing the most effective and effecient advancement in the knife industry today: The patented Emerson Wave. When removed from the pocket, this wave shaped protrusion on the spine of the blade catches the edge of the pocket, instantly deploying the blade with only one hand without the use of springs! It doesn't get any faster than that in a self-defense situation.
Manufactured by Fox Knives in Maniago, Italy, using one the highest quality and strongest steels: NC690Co Stainless Steel. This provides a fine and consistent edge, enhanced edge retention and sharpening receptivity, and corrosion resistance for those far off and exreme locations. The Fox Karambit Model 479 features a retention ring that can be used for blunt force impact as well as a more sure and secure grip.
The tiger claw shaped and black teflon coated blade provides devestatingly sharp tip and blade surface with a thickness of .12" and 3" in length, offering a total of 7.5" when fully extended, and 5" when closed. It utilizes a liner lock and weighs in at a mere 4.02oz. The adjustable pocket clip allows ambidextrous use. It designed for tip-up carry with the Emerson Wave feature for fast deployment in a reverse grip to most effectively utilize its slashing power from its pocketed resting position in an upward motion, but can also be utilized in the forward grip.

Whether you need to a utility knife to open boxes or clamshell packaging, or a self-defense tool to open a can of whoop ass, the Fox karambit is a force to be reckoned with of the highest quality and the most reliability in any situation where a need arises.
