just noticed this new karambit from red scorpion six looks like a really cool knife has anyone used or seen this and what can this be used for besides martial arts, also is the double edge karambit legal to carry.

Looks interesting. I took a lot of kali and a modest amount of silat training but I never got seriously into kerambits. I have a couple trainers but haven't carried a real one. I would like to handle that model if I ever see one at a shop or knife show.

Thanks for the look!

I don't know if he's said who does the actual manufacturing, but his Predator WSK was made in China.

i was trying to do the flip that brings the hawk bill back to the reverse grip and it caught me on the wrist. i had turned my hand in toward my wrist, mistake. but taught me a nice lesson. be carefull doing the little flips. will bite you. got the stitches to prove it.

your cut.one said,"it
would be cool if when
his stitches where ready to
take out.'if he cut 'em out
with the karambit."
another says...
"WITH THE SAME HAND".

I had a problem with mine having the grinds uneven and the blade canted. I know that this seems picky but I wanted what I payed for. As soon as I notified RS6 of the problem he fixed it. Sent me a new one right away with a extra zipper case.
Out of the box it was razor sharp. The coating is very tough. I did not like that the laminate handle but for the price it is VERY well built. I would sooner it be one peice.
I will probably grind the back edge flat so I can carry it everyday. The serrations work great for rope ect.
For people making sheaths it works great for punching stitching holes and the back serration work wonderful for making stitch marks for where your stitching should go. It will cut patterns GREAT!!
They did a great job on the kydex sheath and you can even put a tek lok on it but the nylon belt loop works.
I think that this knife will work great for self defense. It is a ripping,tearing machine. I do not care for the black blade and it easily polishes with some work. The ring on the end needs the inside polished and smoothed due to waterjet marks.
