The Fox 479-TK G10 Karambit Trainer is a dull version of its more lethal twin brother, the Fox 479 G10 Karambit. Like the 479 live blade, it also features the Emerson Wave. The trainer has drilled holes through the length of the blade, giving it the same weight, balance, and function as the paired live blade version. Now you can learn how to properly handle the sharpened live blade version without having to pay for your mistakes with your own blood and tears!
Despite having a blunted blade, the trainer still has a quality blade made of 440C stainless steel, which can allow it to double as a blunt force object and/or control device. Training karambits can cause serious pain if used in a forceful manner or on sensitive areas, so please be aware that you should still practice using appropriate protective gear, especially if sparring with another person. Some people may choose to carry this trainer instead of the sharpened edge live blade, as this blade still offers an effective method of self defense without the use of potentially lethal force.
The red G10 handle allows you to quickly tell the difference between the live blade version (black) and the trainer (red). With a blade length of 3", it is 7.5" long when open and 5" when closed. It also features a liner lock mechanism and tip up carry with an adjustable pocket clip. It is designed to mimic and mirror its live blade brother in every way possible. Made in Italy.
