COMPACT TACTICAL KARAMBIT- C.T.K.
Blade Length: 2 1/4 "
O/A Length: 6"

Finish on blade: Powder coat
Sheath: multi-positional kydex offering 40+ (plus) different carry positions.
Blade looks great (for the most part). Rating the knife a 4, but if I was to depend on using the sheath provided, I'd be giving it a 2 or 3.
Pros- Good, compact blade, the handle feels great in the hand and the ring is a perfect size. Note that the website doesn't describe the type of cord wrap. It is a smaller cordage, not paracord (but not an issue for me).
Cons- All edges are sharp, except the tip. The grind is poor and shallow as the edges meet at the tip which causes the tip to be almost dull. Lastly, the sheath is not really useful. Too thick of kydex for a knife, very bulky/heavy, and the sheath edges are far from smooth If worn it would eventually demolish any fabric it'd rub. (Planning on making a better sheath made of thinner material).
Again, really like the blade itself and it will hopefully serve it's purpose if needed.
