Designed by Bastinelli Knives in collaboration with Microtech, the Iconic Karambit is a modern interpretation of the classic Filipino Karambit. This right-hand carry version makes a powerful defensive tool as well as a practical, utility blade. This version comes with a stonewashed M390 blade and black G10 handle scales.
Blade: A saber ground, hawkbill style blade is executed with a heavy stonewashed finish that hides wear from use and reduces the reflectivity. Bohler M390 delivers optimal performance and is sharpened to a razor-like edge. A dramatic thumb ramp provides added control and leverage for powerful cuts.
Handle: The full tang supports blasted and contoured black G10 handle scales attached via Torx hardware and milled with a diamond texture at the peak of the palm swell of the scales for added grip. The crowned spine is proud to the scales added a more contoured feel without increasing the overall thickness for carry. The end ring is well finished and allows for all the traditional Karambit techniques.
Sheath: Carries via a molded Kydex sheath with large locking Tek-Lok.
Bohler M390: A popular choice for high-end user grade knives thanks to its exceptional edge retention, M390 has a good corrosion resistance for minimal maintenance. Another great feature of this steel is the ability to resist burr formation during sharpening. Comparable steels are CTS-204P and Duratech 20CV.
