I like CRKT only because they do knock-offs of really interesting knife designs. But karambits are unique in that they have to fit the hand perfectly to reach their potential. I've tried several karambits, but none have fit my hand right. The karambit should fit the hand like a tight, leather glove, with the blade basically being a functional claw. This complicated, moving-parts-up-the-ying-yang design is clever and cool, but I'm not seeing the functional advantage. Maybe the upcoming reviews will prove me wrong.
