Just got one of these! FOX DART XT Tanto Black G10 Fighting Knife Emerson Wave (Size: M - XL) I like it! Combination of a short Tanto Blade with a Ring hilt from a Karambit is exactly what I've been looking for! I cut my teeth on Jim Keating's reverse grip "Drawpoint" method a couple of decades ago and updated it with Mike Janich's material a few years later. IMHO, this is the perfect knife for that method! The one thing I haven't particularly liked about Karambits was that they are not very good for thrusts and the hook can actually catch on thicker clothing and prevent you from flowing through a cut. What I did like was the ring! So for me, this is exactly what I was looking for, and there is also a training version available! I like Doug Marcaida. I'm a big fan of his on the "Forged in Fire" show. I got the DVD and it is "ok." If I didn't have the training background I have it might have impressed me more. His "clock method" is simply a way to look at the angles typically taught in FMAs. You picture a clockface in front of you and practice slashes or thrusts from 3 o'clock thru center, 11 o'clock thru center, etc.
