    Very interesting.

    For me, folding karambits of that design tend to have a loop that's too small for my finger, but the Bengal looks like it addresses that.

    As I recall, Tuhon Ray Dionaldo of FCS and Sayoc Kali 'endorsed' that particular blade in a few ads I've seen, which is a very good endorsement. I know he was involved in the design of a non-folding karambit with another knifemaker, so I don't know if he's still affiliated with Cutters. Also, the products link on cuttersknifentool.com doesn't work.

    The sheath is interesting, but watching the demonstration of drawing the blade leaves me with a concern: when under stress, it could be possible to draw the blade without the blade being locked open, which for a folding karambit, could lead to a bad day. I prefer the single action of the Emerson karambit's 'Wave' design.

    Informative review, thanks for sharing.

    What's the price range of that blade? I know the Emerson folding karambit ain't cheap.

    Yes sir, you are correct Tuhon Ray Dionaldo did help in the design and endorsed this particular knife. Ray is incredible to watch work. I do see your concern with the sheath not working properly under duress, I guess anything could be possible with whatever defensive tool we could plug into the scenario. I can tell you that I have opened it a minimum of a thousand times without one failure to work properly.

    This flavor runs about $350 if I remember correctly, don't quote me tho. I'm not sure about the website but the maker answers emails pretty good. You can try him tom@cuttersknifentool.com

    It looks like the company may be working on their product line or something, because as I said, their products link doesn't work on their Web site. I also didn't find any for sale after a quick look. If you're really interested, I'd use the e-mail address Ebbtide provided and contact the guy directly.

    10-4, the website doesn't offer much but he does answer emails.

    Nice knife, but not for me, the sheath is awesome but takes up to much precious belt space that I have reserved for other tools. Thanks for sharing.
