Cold Steel's Steel Tiger Karambit
"... and the blade should be hooked, like the claws of a tiger, for maximum ripping and tearing...."
Cold Steel's Steel Tiger® is a thoroughly modern tactical interpretation of an ancient Indonesian karambit.
A design collaboration between Lynn C Thompson and the late custom knife maker Steven Likarich, the Steel Tiger karambit was designed to possess all the best features of this iconic hooked blade and to integrate them seamlessly with modern materials and styling.
This budget friendly karambit's broad, deeply curved and needle sharp blade simply has to be seen and felt to be believed. Its cost doesn't tell the whole story -- this wicked little knife is durable, well made, and ready to kick some ass.
The tough and durable Griv-Ex® core handle fully encapsulates the tang, emerging to create the bolster, thumb-shelf and distinctive finger ring. This Griv-Ex® core is then injection over-molded with premium Kray-Ex™ polymer, creating a superb, non-slip grip that won’t let you down even when your hands are cold or wet. Plus, the ring offers great grip security.
For safety, convenience and lightning quick access, the Steel Tiger® comes with a military style Secure-Ex® sheath that you can lash to your gear or place on your person via the removable boot/belt clip. You can also purchase a Steel Tiger karambit training blade so you can practice in safety.
