seriously I'd venture to say that that is waterjet cut and CNC machined. Not sure where the handmade part comes into play.
Wasn't made for skinning but you could reek havok on an attacker and I guess if you don't make it yourself it's .... but the price is right for my needs as I have many other types of knives.
Self defense knife for a "specific" use and Steel Talon is correct, I should have written "made in Italy".
G-10 scales, very good ergonomics, and a razor sharp blade made of N690Co steel a high quality European steel that is similar in performance to VG-10.
As most hand to hand type combat or knife disarming is that it's much more difficult to perform as this Karambit knife w/ its ring feature & talon shape design is not only easier to maneuver around any wrist grabbing moves to stop your opponent, but also is nearly impossible for you to stab your own arm with (as opposed to holding a straight blade in reverse) as the blade is curved outward. That's why we love this knife.
A video of it's use and if I can become 1/3 as proficient as Emerson I'll be satisfied.
Like it or not, when the chips are down and lives are at stake, an armed citizen can be the "first responder." People who dont like guns invariably rely on people who have guns when their lives are in danger.
