This one is the latest product of "EGKH". The karambit is used by the practitioners of the martial arts of Filipino Kali and Indonesian Silat, as a small, discrete, and extremely fast martial arts weapon.
It evolved in Southeast Asia as a small, all-purpose utility knife and agricultural tool - rather resembling a miniature sickle.
Most true karambits are double-edged, and feature a characteristic “ring” at the end of the handle, into which a finger can be inserted.
The karambit’s distinctive ring does three things - it prevents the knife from being dropped. It keeps the user's fingers from slipping onto the sharp blade, and it allows the user to employ both hands to work, without putting the knife down.
