T.U.S.K Nitro-V Cerakote Camo
The karambit is believed to have originated among the Minangkabau people of West Sumatra where, according to folklore, it was inspired by the claws of tiger. It was typically used as a secondary or last resort when the fighter's other weapons were lost in battle.
We took some characteristics of ancient karambits and modernized them. Our goal was to make the T.U.S.K. an easily concealable and daily carry knife. Drawing from ancient photographs and text we added the archaic characteristic known as "cock-tail feathers". The three harpoon like barbs at the rear of the karambit are designed to catch/trap clothing (a technique used in filipino martial arts) it also will rip and tear- maximizing damage in a self-defense situation.
The blade shape as a minimal curve with a modified tanto tip intended for thrusting and to provide maximum tip strength. An expertly designed contour of the handle places the blade in a precise position for tip down or "earth grip". One of the most notable properties of a karambit is the ring. The T.U.S.K has a slightly oversized ring to work with gloves for military professionals but will work just as well without. To increase control the ring has jimping to increase grip when in the extended position.
