The newest addition to the Emerson Knives' Karambit series, the Karambit Flipper is an American made knife specifically designed for combat, self defense, and tactical applications. The Karambit Flipper packs a lot of power into a comfortable, lightweight package, and it's the perfect knife for any everyday carry tactical arsenal.
The sleek 2.6-inch Crucible 154 CM stainless steel blade features a wicked-looking claw blade shape. If the intimidating appearance of the blade isn't enough to stop an assailant, the precise, razor-sharp chisel grind blade edge surely will. The Karambit Flipper boasts a Rockwell Hardness rating of 57-59, meaning the blade will sharpen well and offer excellent edge retention, while remaining durable and extremely corrosion resistant, even in the face of heavy use.
The Karambit Flipper offers three deployment methods: thumb out, flip out, and Emerson's proprietary wave out. The wave out mechanism allows the knife to be removed from a pocket while simultaneously extending the blade, allowing for great accessibility and control in high-stress situations. Ball bearings also provide a smooth and seamless deployment experience. An extremely sturdy titanium liner lock holds the Karambit Flipper's blade in place while in use, preventing the blade from slipping closed on your fingers.
It's 4.65-inch black G-10 epoxy and glass laminate handle creates a solid, sturdy grip, even when hands are wet from sweat or rain. A 0.9-inch diameter finger hole provides the flexibility expected of a karambit, allowing the user to comfortably and effectively hold the knife in different styles.
The very first folding karambit was manufactured by Emerson Knives, and the Karambit Flipper demonstrates their extensive knowledge of blades and their dedication to fine craftsmanship and quality materials. Backed with KnifeArt.com's full satisfaction guarantee, hassle free return policy, and fast, free domestic shipping on orders over $150, the Karambit Flipper is the perfect folding karambit to add to your tactical, combat, self defense, or everyday carry arsenal!
