    With the new 2013 re-design, this is hands down the BEST folding self defence knife I’ve ever handled. With a functionality that is truly scary ( a wave-able three inch steel claw rock solid in the hand in either forward or reverse grip) , this knife has an intimidation factor that is hard to match in a folding knife. I’ve had the new re-enforced tip super karambit with the stand offs for a little over a month now, and i am very impressed with the redesign. I own a 2012 super karambit as well, it’s one of my favorite knives, but i am always weary of damaging both the tip and the finger hole. Both these issues have been fixed and re-enforced in the new design with no loss of performance in cutting or piercing power, and i don’t hesitate to abuse my new super karambit like i do all of my other emerson knives.

    Got mine yesterday. I used to look at these and think they were merely very cool. But when you grip one in your hand the light bulb comes on…It is a powerful and superbly intuitive device for self defense. My only thought was “Now I understand”.

    There are plenty of Karambit knives on the market, but the Emerson Karambits have a few features that make them uniquely well suited for their intended use as a self defense tool. Aside from the things like the blade shape and ring in that handle, which allow for intuitive use in a fight, the Wave feature is, in my opinion, crucial for use in an emergency. If you find yourself suddenly needing to defend yourself from an assailant, you may not have time to draw a knife from your pocket, open, and lock it, all before making your first strike against the aggressor. With the Wave feature, and the ability to orient the clip in multiple directions, you can literally draw the knife from your pocket and have it already open, and locked in place in a single motion (a motion that can be integrated into an upward slash towards anyone or anything that is attempting to do harm to you or your loved ones). To me, this is what makes the Emerson Karambits far superior to others as an emergency tool. Add the reinforced ring (and now with the standoffs instead of solid backspacer) and you never have to worry about the knife failing under the stress of this kind of situation. If you want a last ditch knife that you know will always be ready to use, especially as a weapon for self defense, the Combat and Super Combar Karambits are second to none.

    This knife has an excellent edge and very easy to deploy. Plus it’s easy to work on with either a philips o flat head screwdriver. Like all the other reviews it has a lot of intimidation factor. It has become my EDC knife and any other knife i get from Emerson.

    I’ve had a few knives, but after going to the Emerson Super Karambit 2013 I’m never going back to any other style for my every day carry. As another reviewer, Blakecb has said, one you grip a fine karambit like the Emerson Super, you understand the ergonomics and believe this is what a knife should be.

    Now, if only y’all would gift the world with an Emerson Uber Karambit I will be first in line!

    Heck, go crazy and offer us a partially serrated Uber Karambit and/or double edged to the top of the thumb ramp!

    Take my money!!!

    This innovative work of art will impress even the most hard to please skeptics. The design is nearly flawless, when it is removed from its clipped location, the blade is deployed with a reassuring snap as it’s locks into place notifying you its ready to work. It’s also a great conversation piece because of the unique design. All of my friends want one now after trying mine. It’s really is an incredible utility/self defense wonder of the modern knife age.
