Default Karambit?

Hi all I'm thinking of purchasing a Karambit. I'd like to get a good one but i dont want to spend too much preferrably $100 or less. Thx in advance for your suggestions.

I have the Fox FX599 Karambit (Ernest Emerson design).
It is well made and a little above $100.
Quality cost a little more.

Oh. It's a knife. Sorry my naievete is showing again.

I thought a Karambit was some foreign brand of firearms that I've never heard of. I was about to wonder what kind of gun it was for $100 or less.

I know I know, good story right?

Interesting design. I don't own one but I liked the looks of the Ontario offering. The curve to the blade seems less pronounced than some others.
