This version of the Emerson Kerambit is for those applications where an extremely tough, lightweight, non conductive, non-magnetic, non-metallic, knife is called for. Constructed of GV6H 60% glass fiber composite, it’s the same size as the standard Emerson Kerambit, only it’s a fixed blade version. Comes complete with light weight paddle style sheath that combines the best materials and design that sets a new standard for superior comfort, safety, security, and low noise in knife sheaths.

I really like this karambit. It's really handy an super light weight. Also the customer service from exit strategy is second to none. The only thing is the sheath could have a bit more retentionretention. Although if you are keeping in mind the low price I can't complain. I would buy it again. Mark.

Let me first start off by saying I was a tad skeptical of this piece but figured as long as the tip was pointed it could cause significant damage for self defense.
This piece is VERY sturdy. I was at first a bit of a skeptic as I didn't want any flimsy plastic like I've been tricked before. Let me assure you as that is not the case here. I attempted to hold the karambit and see if I could bend it to snap it in half. The plastic does not even give way. You could confidently drive this through your drywall.
The tip is very sharp. Even the blade portion feels sharp when running your finger across it and I was able to slice a piece of paper roughly. So you can just imagine dragging it with force in self-defense. My ONLY gripe with this is I would prefer the knuckle ring a bit bigger as I have big hands and my finger only fits halfway to hold it. For this I gave it 4 stars, a bigger ring would get 5. But the ring because of the plastic is very sturdy and like a real karambit can be used when punching. I took it outside to test against my wooden fence with a few punches. Very sturdy.
Overall, I am happy with my purchase and have something to fall back on for self defense.
