ABOUT THE NIGHTMARE KARAMBIT: The awesome Extrema Ratio NIGHTMARE KARAMBIT. The history of the karambit stretches back to the 11th century. Born in Indonesia and now spread around the world. It was originally used as an agricultural and field tool. The NIGHTMARE KARAMBIT's uniquely curved blade makes this a very versatile knife. It's usefulness ranges from cutting ropes, webbing, and belts, to opening boxes, cutting zip ties, etc. Designed primarily for you to use as a utility knife but you can also use it for a self-defense weapon.

The NIGHTMARE KARAMBIT is an effective utility tool useful for EDC [every day carry]. A handy EDC if you are in construction, farming, gardening, etc. Very functional for many of your routine activities; excellent for outdoor tasks when you are camping, fishing, backpacking, or in a survival situation. Has an advantage in tight areas where a straight edge knife wouldn't work as well – i.e. cutting seat belt webbing in an emergency.

Incorporates the traditional karambit finger ring that facilitates gripping the knife, making it easy for you to hold on to the NIGHTMARE KARAMBIT and harder to drop when being used. In a defensive situation, it makes it difficult for an attacker to disarm you. The NIGHTMARE KARAMBIT's unique features make this a good choice if you are into Filipino and Indonesian martial arts.

The Extrema Ratio NIGHTMARE KARAMBIT is a well-designed, mufti-functional knife. Constructed with quality materials and quality craftsmanship. You will enjoy using and showing it off. Unique. Impressive.

BLADE: Extrema Ratio has retained the classic blade style of the traditional karambit. Due to the blade shape, the karambit is sometimes referred to as a “hawk's bill knife”. However, it is believed the tiger's claw was the inspiration. The blade is fashioned to provide double guards and is partially serrated. The blade length is under 3 inches so it is legal in most areas. This model has a black handle and a black blade.

HANDLE: The Extrema Ratio NIGHTMARE KARAMBIT has a handle shape that is found on all karambits with the finger ring incorporated as part of the handle. The handle is shaped and textured to give you a good grip. There is a recessed zip tie cutter on the handle. On the finger ring, you will find a glass breaker. The NIGHTMARE KARAMBIT folder has a clip allowing a tip up carry.

LOCK: The NIGHTMARE KARAMBIT has a liner lock. It also has an additional manual lock for an extra layer of safety.
