You get more than what you pay for...
This is my first Fox knife, and is actually my first karambit. The aluminum handles are actually a bit darker than shown in the promo pictures. But that's no issue for me since the knife still looks totally awesome! The blade came EXTREMELY sharp right out of the box. The build quality and the quality of the materials used, in my opinion, surpasses what you pay for this knife. I carry this knife with a wallet and keys in my pocket and it is a big room taker. However, if you have deep pockets, then this knife shouldn't cause any issues. Side note: my keys have been rubbed and mashed against the handles and so far still NO SCRATCHES appear! The handles hold up really well! Lastly, the Emerson wave feature is really nice. The ring on the karambit allows you to grasp the knife very easily, hence allowing you to draw it faster. Keep in mind though, just like a handgun, you will need to practice your draw. There's little quirks in the draw and every pocket is different. As for the size of this karambit, my hands are super skinny and non-beefy, but not super large. This karambit is a bit big, however, my hand still fits on it fine. Bottom line: if you've got the money for this knife, BUY IT! 10/10

Love this knife!
I love this knife! It has supplanted my Microtech as my favorite everyday carry knife. The wave feature is easy to use, but requires a bit of practice to master. Once you have that down though this thing comes out of your pocket with the knife open and ready to use. I can't think of a better self defense blade. Plus it's great fun to twirl when you're bored, just be careful! The only con is the liner lock, while it locks securely there is a bit of play. I would rather have a beefy framelock. These are small complaints and wouldn't give me pause if I was reaching for it in a self defense scenario.
