Hey people,

I just wanted to share a design I did some time ago and was made by a friend of mine. It's a cross between a Karambit and a hawkbill knife. Steel used is flat ground A2 tool steel hardened until 58 Hrc and satin finished. Handle is grooved G10. This baby comes in a fully ambidextrous kydex sheath. As it's made to my specs it fits my hand like a glove! Please let me know what you think.

It's a fixed blade and it set me back 130 euro (bear in mind it's completely hand-made). I know this guy has created stuff for US-residents before, if any of you are serious about buying one I could always ask if he feels like making another one.

Very Cool! Looks like nice work. Personally I would opt for a double edge instead of the serration things but other that that, I want one!

The serattions are quite handy when you "hook" a limb with them. Without them the limb would easily slide out due to the shape of the blade. And double edges are illegal here in Belgium :)
