Not as 'Great' as you hear
I have owned this knife for about 3 yrs. While a great design, I always found the ring to be too small for my index finger. Now, I understand you cannot make a perfect knife, so the size of the ring does not factor into this review. This knife is sharp out of the box and the Emerson wave is really nice. Makes deploying fast and the knife feels solid in your grip. I did find it to be quite cumbersome and a bit on the heavy side for a folder, the edge does not hold as well as you would like, I did have this knife malfunction due to wear and tear, to be blunt, warranty with Emerson is hit or miss. I had a hard time justifying purchasing this knife again. I chalked this one up to a loss and purchased a new folding karambit.

Great knife
This knife is a great one. I had to adjust the tension but the opening is butter smooth and snaps. This is a great addition to CC activities.

Emerson Karambit folding knife
Product is great for self defense. Grip feels snug and secure. Like the texture on the handle. Emerson makes quality knives and this one meets my expectation. The blade is sharp right out of the box and I like the tactical look. Definitely recommend this product.
