Cold Steel Steel Tiger Karambit Fixed Blade

0 star rating Write a review

The Cold Steel 49KST Steel Tiger is a thoroughly modern tactical interpretation of an ancient Indonesian Karambit.

A design collaboration between Lynn C Thompson and the late custom knifemaker Steven Likarich, the Steel Tiger was designed to possess all the best features of this iconic hooked blade and to integrate them seamlessly with modern materials and styling.

The Steel Tiger's broad, deeply curved and needle-sharp blade simply has to be seen and felt to be believed. The AUS-8 stainless steel blade is vacuum heat-treated and sub-zero quenched, taper ground and highly polished for maximum strength, cutting power, edge retention, and performance.

The tough and durable Griv-Ex core handle fully encapsulates the tang, emerging to create the bolster, thumb-shelf and distinctive finger ring. This Griv-Ex core is then injection over-molded with premium Kray-Ex polymer, creating a superb, non-slip grip that won't let you down even in when your hands are cold or wet.

For safety, convenience and lightning quick access, the Steel Tiger comes with a military style Secure-Ex sheath that you can lash to your gear or retain on your person via the removable boot/belt clip.
