Morphing Karambit

Version 1 Prototype

         

The Morphing Karambit Version 1 Prototype features a first-of-kind example of a novel, patent-pending approach to karambit design.

Benefits include the ability to instantly deploy the blade from a retention position (with blade retracted) without requiring the user to remove fingers from about the handle to allow a blade to pass along a traditional rotational axis.

This enhances the tool’s utility as a compliance device because, once deployed with blade retracted, that condition may be changed in a moment of crisis, deploying the blade immediately and without compromising control of the tool, or requiring support-hand assistance to accomplish.

Additionally, user safety is enhanced because the blade’s conveyance path never crosses any portion of the user’s hand when held consistent with typical karambit usage.
