Too brittle. If you can't carry a metal knife, maybe one of those reinforced nylon stabbers from Cold Steel is an option.

With the notable exception of Prefontaine and Rightwire, not a lot of love for the karambit in this thread. “Deep and frequent” is the phrase that comes to mind.

Of course. That makes perfect sense! Wink

Sir , Para I carry that same knife off duty on my left or off hand side. I am a BIG fanboy of fixed knives for defense. I practice drawing with both strong side and reaction hand. With a fixed bladed knife you do not have to worry about failure of
the blade locking. With the fixed blade knife it never needs to reloaded unlike a handgun does. I can go on and on. On duty I ( I am a house cat now) I carried a Becker Necker on my off side pocket and Spyderco Endura behind my gunbelt at my waist.
Not a Navy SEAL but, one is none and two is one. The best reason to carry a fixed blade knife if you are knocked to the ground as bad folks go to cowboy dance on you it is an opportunity to collect dna from all if you wish... VI

I haven’t bought a Cold steel lately either, but I’ve never stopped admiring them. One of my favorites is the master hunter in carbon V. I wouldn’t feel disadvantaged if this was all I had after the magazines ran dry. I’ve opened a lot of deer with it and it’ll do. I spent $60 on it a long time ago, so perhaps in inflation adjusted dollars it would meet some of the younger generation’s standards.

I’ve always coveted the kobun as well as the SRK. I just have come to a point that I take a breath before I duplicate a perfectly serviceable knife (or gun)that I already own. Spend the savings on ammo

Covers my fixed blade requirements ... so far
Belt, neck and pocket, the fix (-ed blade) is in.
EDIT: That Cold Steel Naval Dirk has even ridden in a pants leg (waist to just above knee) on one occasion.

I like this one for the stabby-stabby flavor. $210 is a bit steep, not that I haven’t spent that much on ZT, Busse, and others...

4.14” blade, 3.8 oz.



It’s out for pre-order on KnifeCenter, so must be a new one...

I had one of these back in the day, and it is an excellent knife. Was stolen in a house burglary back in 1990 or so.

Watch a few of Doug Marcaida's videos, he'd disagree as stabby is a big advantage of a Karambit, just not in the normal linear way.

What about stabby is not linear? Cutty = karambit, I thought.

I’ve never been eye-to-eye with another man intent on doing me serious bodily harm, for that I’m grateful. I did train extensively in Kajukenbo, a combat MA developed in Hawaii after WWII. Within that training had quite a bit of Kali and Escrima, including some edged weapon stuff. “Defang the snake” was a phrase used to describe strikes or cuts to the arm (most often) attacking you. I can tell you that it’s possible to filet an arm from the hand, all the up to, and including the neck, in less time than it takes to think about it.

I like the small fixed blades CRKT makes. They're good enough to use & fairly inexpensive. They're thin even in the sheath.

I have the 2300GT (no longer in production. I wish I had bought a few more) on my plate rig, & a Minimalist Bowie neck knife.




This one is the closest I could find to compare to the 2300GT>
