Morphing Karambit

Version 2 Prototype


The Morphing Karambit Version 2 Prototype is the second-generation example of the novel, patent-pending approach to karambit design originally debuted in the Version 1 prototype.

Version 2 provides the same benefits as Version 1, which 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.

Version 2 represents a dramatic refinement in concept and form over Version 1. Greatly simplified construction means the robust assembly contains only 5 unique parts, plus pocket clip and fasteners.

V2 is more compact overall and improved to enhance utility as a compliance tool when used with blade retracted.

Manual-of-arms with respect to unlocking procedure is also greatly improved.
