This ergonomically designed Smith & Wesson liner lock is designed for ultimate control and cutting power in any situation.
I thought Smith & Wesson is a gun company, how did they mess up on a simple framelock knife? There's SOOO much vertical & side-to-side blade play, this karambit is almost impractical! It rattles a lot. The only reason I didn't give it 1 or 2 stars is because the 440C steel is actually really good so I may salvage that to create my own mini kama or scythe or something like that. Maybe I got a lemon? Darn.
This is an excellent karambit, it is small, easily maneuverable, and fits my hand perfectly. I can not think of a better deal for the money.
The knife is very easy to open, especially with one hand (use your thumb on the side of it and slide it up). It's not bulky but nor is it small, it is the perfect size for anyone and anything. Great for opening packages (and scaring your siblings). If there was a time that I would have to use it as self defense, I would surely be in good hands. The knife also has a pocket clip, that way it stays safe and secure within your pocket. Highly recommend!
The knife is very well made and tight. It has a nice weight to it for the size. That being said the size is very nice. I am a 6'4 245lb man and it fits my hand very well (both forward and inverted grip). I used it at work and it is very useful for cutting pallet wrap/ straps. It also cuts through cardboard like butter. I try to be discreet with it simply because of the inherent menacing look of karambits, even though it has been very useful for very practical purposes. Hopefully I'll never have to find out, but should I need to use it for self defense, it feels as though it would be an excellent tool for the task. The look of it would be daunting for all but the most intrepid attackers. Again, I am a 6' 4" 245lb ex football player/ boxing enthusiast and if a 100lb woman pulled this thing on me I'd run for it. One tip: USE THE POCKET CLIP...it opened in my pocket once but I'm still giving it 5 stars because it was due to me being a reckless idiot. Amazed by the quality of this very affordable knife.
First purchase from BUDK, the knife was everything as advertised. More purchases to come. Thanks BUDK
This knife comes very sharp right out of the box. I was actually able to shave my arm with the knife. Intimidating looking and a well made knife for sure.
I bought 5 karambits and some of them are more expensive than 80 dollars, but I am proudly announcing that this one is the best one ! Feels like a 100 dollar knife and is razor sharp 10/10 would buy again.
This knife is awesome once Yoe you play around with it and find ways to open it faster because it is slow on the draw, its some why difficult to open, though it is my EDC and I do play with it every day when ever I get a chance its fun to twirl just watch out I have cut myself doing this
The other Smith and Wesson Kerambit is one of my favorite knives so had to try this one as I prefer the blade curve on this model. Once the blade is open the knife is fantastic. Lost one star because it is much slower to open and close. Hopefully more breaking in and tinkering will sort it out because this is a knife that I want to love, but as is I only like it. I can open it one handed, but there is enough drag on the action that I can't "flick" it I have to pivot it all the way open with my thumb. It is also fairly difficult to release the liner lock to close but I definitely prefer that to one that closes when you don't want it too.
This knife is excellent. The only true way to know when a knife is sharp is if you can shave your face with it. This knife was so sharp, it gave me a clean shave. I definitely plan to order more from this website. 10/10
The knife is awesome and the price makes it even better. It has excellent weight and very smooth opening and the knife is very well made.
the knife came early even though there was ice everywhere. and when it did it was very sharp and felt very sturdy
S&W makes great quality products and this continues that standard. Lightweight, and with a low profile to it can be carried discreetly for this low price is awesome.
Great knife for the money! The finger hole is a good size, especially for someone like me with a large hand and fingers.(many karambit styles don't fit my hand from this reason) Smooth opening, good lock up from the alloy frame! slimline, fits in the pocket well. Easy to sharpen and holds a razor sharp edge with a little stone work. I also like the subdued camo print on the knife. I like it well enough, I bought a second to do a little custom work to open it with a wave feature. All in all, great little karambit for the money.
Gave this as a stocking stuffer to my son. He set aside his usual S&W specops folder and now carries this. It is a superb defensive weapon. Bang for the buck makes this an excellent choice.
This is a very solid and sturdy Karambit. I've had mine for several months now and it still locks into place tight with no movement. It's starting to dull a little but that is to be expected with cutting bundle straps on a regular basis. Overall it has held it's edge very well.
When I bought the knife I was expecting to be disappointed, not this time. The blade was not very sharp but about ten minutes with a small stone and it was razor sharp. Even though it was made in China it is a solid, well built knife. Once sharpened it stays sharp. Will buy more for my sons and grandsons.
Fantastic blade and light weight, I don't leave the house without it! I would highly recommended this to anyone.
High quality, camo paint come off lightly (had it 6+ months paint hasnt chipped). I've had no problems with it at all. I absolutly recommend buying this knife if you're looking for a great collectors piece or self defense tool.
Straight out of the box this knife was every bit worth the price I paid. From sharpness to functionality to quality, this knife is an unbelievably well crafted tool. I am an avid knife collector and I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this karambit from Smith & Wesson. Best purchase I've made in a while.
I bough this off my buddy who bught it off this site and i was skeptical about a karambit but after holding it and playing with I must say this is a great knife and is built very solid and the colors are great.
First of all, the camouflage on it is amazing. The hand hold is the best I've ever experienced, even when reversed. Its a step ahead of most other knives with the material. Light weight and strong. This karambit should be listed in the $80-$100 range.
For their price, S&W makes very solid knives. This is the second folder of theirs I've bought, and I'm very satisfied. I wasn't willing to shell out $150 for a high quality Emerson karambit, and this one filled the gap nicely. The construction is solid, and the steel is of decent quality. The folding mechanism is a bit stiff out of the box, but after a few dozen openings it loosens up nicely. If you're looking for a decent quality karambit and don't want to shell out hundreds of dollars, I highly recommend picking this knife up.
This knife is well built and simple, its a little prone to rust, but its not a problem for most normal people. It holds an edge fairly well. Its got a very small profile so its very comfortable to wear almost anywhere. The only thing that would make it better is making the pocket clip reversable.
