Blade Tech Riptide Karambit Folding 2.5" AUS8 Plain Black Blade, Black G10 Handles
BTRIPTIDE: Riptide Karambit Folder
The Blade Tech Riptide is a Karambit style folder with a 2.5" black AUS8 hawkbill blade. The blade can be deployed either by the flipper tab, the thumb hole, or Emerson's innovative Wave function. The Wave opens the blade kinetically with a quick tug of the ring pulling the Wave and the blade against the pocket and forcing the blade out quickly and safely when seconds count. The textured black G10 handles have machined hole cutouts to reduce weight. The stainless steel pocket clip is four-way reversible with a black finish. This is a Mike Vellekamp design.
