Description
EMSUPERKARAMBITSF: Super Karambit
Emerson Knives
 
The Emerson Super Karambit features the patented "wave shaped opening feature" or Remote Pocket Opener. In an emergency or injury situation the knife can be opened with one hand as it is drawn from the pocket. The knife features a superior reinforced tip design to "beef up" the point and prevent damage to a very delicate point as on previous models. Second, Emerson has changed to using threaded standoffs rather than a solid backspacer as on the previous generation of models. This has added stiffness in the handle, especially in the ring area. Both of these changes have greatly improved the overall design and function of the knife.

The best
Yes it is pricey. Emerson makes best folders, I have carried them daily for like over five years per knife. I wish the hole was a bit larger and the blade a tad longer but think this is the best folding karambit on market.

Cons: None
The quickest folding knife blade deployment you can own.
I acquired an interest in Karambit knives a while ago by doing some reading and also watching some online video presentations. I was particularly interested in Karambit type knives used in defensive tactics. I am partial to knives that have quick blade deployment (automatic knives are nice but illegal in most states and not very practical) Flipper knives are wonderful and I usually carry one for EDC. Some states have restrictions on blade length so a full large Flipper knife is sometimes not practical to carry dependent on where you travel. I needed a knife that has a large handle because the size of my very large hand but I also want a knife that has extremely quick blade deployment, the Emerson Super Karambit Folding Knife has the best of all characteristics. The blade length is deceptively larger than it looks because of the radius curve but it is linear speaking only 3.4 inches. The Emerson Super Karambit features the patented "wave shaped opening feature." The knife is intended to be carried in a pants pocket for the wave feature to be utilized. I choose to carry mine in my front shirt pocket where it is readily accessible whether seated or standing. A slight turn of the wrist as I'm pulling out the knife enables the wave feature to catch itself on the top my shirt pocket a and SNAP with the authority greater than any other knife I own. The knife is built like a tank, the G-10 scales are extremely grippy. The liner lock works perfect and is extremely easy to disengage. The knife not only looks cool but it is fun to play with. This by far is the best Karambit knife I've seen, it is my permanent EDC.

Cons: Blade Sharpness, None
Solid construction / disappointing finish work
First off I will say that the construction of this knife is excellent. The "wave" feature took only pulling it out of a pocket twice to get down smoothly. The blade is solid when out and locked. Excellent quality steel. The handle is a hair on the big side but i have medium-large hands so it really isn't a problem. Most of those things should be expected on a $200+ knife. What i was disappointed in was the finish quality of this knife. The blade is pretty sharp out of the box, but i had to use my round ceramics to put an edge on the would pop hairs off your arm. It is chisel ground and that is not terribly difficult to sharpen, mildly let down with the stock cutting edge. There are noticeable grinder/sanding/laser cutting marks on all of the outer edges. They are not terrible mind you but this knife is $200+ i have $80-$140 knives with better finishing on them. Overall: Absolutely solid and reliable construction and function. Given the price, rather disappointed with the finish quality.
