The Emerson folding Karambit is based on a design from Ancient Indonesia used for self protection and self defense. It is lightweight, quick and super easy to carry with an ergonomic grip. It’s benefits have been proven for decades and it can be used with a forward or reverse grip. The holes allow a superb grip and this knife when in the hands of a skilled user can be quite dangerous yet incredible. It features the Emerson patented “wave shaped opening feature” (remote pocket opener) which allows the knife to be opened with one hand when drawn out of the pocket in an emergency situation.
