The Karambit is a functional knife first introduced in the Indonesian archipelago. However, some believe that this unique design originated in Malaysia or the Philippines. The knife was originally designed to be a working folding knife and dates back to the 6th century. This unusual but functional design was first introduced into the United States at the end of the 1800s but was only put into use by the mid 1900s. In Europe it was first introduced in 1970 and 1980 for use in several martial arts disciplines like the Indonesian Pencak Silat, the Malaysian Bursilat and the Pilipino Kali. Today the Karambit Folding Knife is the next generation of Folding Knives. With the advantage of the Emerson “Wave Shaped Opening Feature” (Patent #5,878,500), this is one of the finest personal defense weapons ever developed.
– Ergonomic Handle Design fits Forward and Reverse Grip perfectly
– Can be carried for Reverse or Forward grip deployment
– Total Ambidextrous opening

We believe that the FOX Karmabit Knife is one of the most unassuming and powerful knives on the market for personal and self defense. Not only that, but we are extremely honored to be allowed by Ernest Emerson himself to utilize his patented (#5,878,500) "Wave Shaped Opening Feature" (or Remote Pocket Opener). With this important and added feature in an emergency or injury situation the knife can be opened with one hand as it is drawn from the pocket.
