Fox 479 Folding Karambit – Badass Knife of the Week

Although some people call the karambit nothing but a gimmick, it just means they’ve never used one the right way.

Because when it comes to self-defense, it’s hard to beat the Fox 479 Folding Karambit.

This unparalleled self-defense tool has undergone rigorous testing in extreme climates and high-pressure situations and utilizes all the advancements you could ever need.

Here’s an excellent video review from ForPete’sSake:

Highlighting the knife is the curved 3.14-inch liner locking blade that’s been coated in black teflon to dampen the reflective properties of the N690Co stainless steel.

When you need the blade in a hurry, there are three ways to engage the knife: via teardrop cutout, flipper, or patented Emerson Wave feature. The Wave allows for engagement of the blade in a single, swift motion, so you don’t waste a second.

Along with its curved blade, a karambit is best known for its retention ring that allows for a reliable grip in various positions. The ring on this Folding Karambit is well-built, giving you blunt force for close-range striking.

The G-10 handle scales provide a reliable grip in all types of conditions. While this iteration comes in black, it’s also available in Olive Drab scales.

Boasting a two-position, tip-up pocket clip, you’ll never feel more secure than when you’re carrying this knife.
