Description: Sam Eddleman is a maker to watch. There's often an element of the fantastic in his knives, with stylistic references to both feudal Japan and the contemporary military. Sam made his first knife in 2008 -- as a knife collector he found that making knives himself was the intuitive next step.
The karambit is originally from the Indonesian archipelago and has found its way throughout South East Asia. Primarily used in the ancient world as a do-it-all knife, the modern renditions of this versatile tool has steadily gained popularity and respect within the tactical world of knives in recent years. The dramatic shape, finger hole and exotic manipulation has captivated collectors, martial blade practitioners and knife enthusiasts alike.
This exceptional Karambit shows Eddleman's skills at their best. The blade was hand ground from high performance N690 stainless steel. N690 ensures a keen, long lasting edge with good resistance to chipping. It is a great choice for high performance, hard use knives. The spine provides two sure thumb rests moving into carving.
Titanium handle scales are hand sculpted for a sure, comfortable grip. They are anodized to a purple/bronze tone. The scales are secured with Torx screws for easy disassembly if needed. The handle culminates in a ring. It is shaped so as to allow a thumb purchase when holding the knife in a reverse grip.
Sam Eddleman's Karambit is an easily concealable, whirlwind of punishment ready for any questionable "social situation" you may unexpectedly be confronted with.
Accompanied by a custom fit kydex sheath with Tek-Lok.
Excellent work throughout!
