Designed by Bastinelli Knives in collaboration with Microtech, the Iconic Automatic Karambit is a modern folding interpretation of the classic Filipino Karambit. This right-hand carry version makes a powerful defensive tool as well as a practical, utility blade. This version comes with a stonewashed finish, CTS-204P blade and black hard anodized Aluminum handle scale.
Brand new, direct from Microtech Knives, USA.
Blade: A saber ground, hawkbill style blade is executed with a heavy stonewashed finish that hides wear from use and reduces the reflectivity. American CTS-204P delivers optimal performance and is sharpened to a razor-like edge. A dramatic thumb ramp provides added control and leverage for powerful cuts when using the knife in a forward Saber grip. The coil spring automatic deployment is fast and decisive.
Handle: Black, hard anodized aluminum handles have a modern look with textured milling for traction and comfortable, chamfered edges. Slide safety on the spine delivers added security open and closed with a large, textured button functioning as deployment and plunge lock operation interface. A traditional Karambit end-ring allows for traditional Karambit techniques and enhances security in the grip.
Carries via a stainless steel pocket clip set up for right hand, tip-up, Karambit-style carry.
CTS-204P: A highly wear-resistant, powder metallurgy stainless steel, CTS-204P has some of the highest edge retention and corrosion resistance available. CTS-204P is similar in performance to CPM-20CV and Bohler’s M390.
