Mine came in great shape
It's a long review so I apologize in advance. It handles very well, slightly heavier than some but not an issue. I have big hands so it fits very comfortably with many holds and positions... a strike point on the ring would be desired in my opinion but it honestly doesn't matter. with a karambit it'll do the job regardless. Came very sharp just not 10,000 grit wet Stone or compound polished sharp. As is it can slice up what your want it to easy enough. It's rough powder coat can turn away some people because it catches dust can show wear etc but I honestly like the look. Plus I use my knives, all of them so I expect this. Holds an edge decently enough for what it's used for and frankly it looks cool. If you have smaller hands this may not be for you for certain holding positions, even though it's advertised as a smaller knife . Other than that the sheath is good but belt loop kinda sucks in placement and function and is in my opinion a cheap excuse for a belt loop. Slightly Thicker belts make it difficult to put on, but material is good enough for nylon and has a hard plastic insert where the blade goes and 2 latching straps with button snaps to secure handle to the sheath. but I have kydex and will make one that suits my needs and suggest anyone do the same. Composite wood handles are good, smooth finish and very comfortable for me. No sharp or rough edges in the palm and making new handles is very easy to do if you are able to or would like to do so.

A disappointing effort from OKC
Prior to this purchase I didn't own any karambits and I chose this due to the more relaxed curvature of this knife over most of the other karambits I've seen. This particular knife just misses the mark on so many levels. The knife is quite heavy for its size, the ring is oddly placed in conjunction with the fat and uncomfortable handle. Maybe its just me but I can't seem to find a comfortable hold in my size large hands. The blade coating is rough, rougher than I've seen from OKC (reminds me of un-oiled parkerized firearm parts, only worse) and the edge grind looks slightly uneven and maybe even has a step or two in the curvature. Lastly, the sheath is completely worthless and doesn't really fit the fat handle or the blade particularly well. I do like the wood on the handle, but that is really about it.
