My friends say I'm a Velociraptor now...
I hope this review helps some of the more skeptical folks out there as well as some seasoned karambit carriers. From out of the box, this thing has been on my belt every day (3 weeks at this point). Now the sheath is chunky and positioned completely backwards (if drawing reversed grip), but I've wanted to conceal carry this bad boy with a custom sheath for months so I knew the sheath wouldn't factor in on my purchase. I was surprised it came in a different kydex sheath with more suspension grommets and a detachable belt loop which may enable this sheath to belong on a backpack or MOLLE plate carrier later. Now the knife. It's fat, but in a good way. I like the balance, proportion, and arc angle compared to every other karambit i've played or worked with as it functions naturally forward and reversed. I find that more curved blades almost work against you in forward grip. The negative on it's weight is that you have to carry it well or it'll drop your pants or slide all over the place. Similar to carrying a pistol. The pommel ring is 1" in clear diameter and fits my medium fingers well. I think it could deliver on a pommel strike and protect my finger well enough. The simple ergo is smart for accommodating multiple hand sizes while the routed index groove and 3 gouges in the micarta don't even slip when wet. On sharpness, the karambit is not intended to be a razor as many tanto or drop-tips are, but rather utilizes the point/tip to slice as the body of the blade applies the pressure, like pricking a balloon. That's why you can effectively split heads open as easily with the sharpened edge as with the spine of the blade. This EOD even helps that by beveling the spine to a needle-like point, making it a truly effective melee option from many angles of attack. This thing is the real deal, OKC Ranger EOD and no knock-off, just make sure you get some training with it before you depend on it to save your life.

A beast of a knife!.....with one problem
This is my first Ontario product, and I'm very impressed. This knife is built like a tank. It's a little on the heavy side, but it's built for heavy use. I have large hands, but it fits well. The blade feels like a natural extension of you hand, with either traditional, or reverse grip. The micarta handles are substantial, and feel good in the hand. The blade was a bit dull when I got it, but 5 minutes with a honing steel fixed that. The kydex sheath is horrible though. It's unnecessarily large, and feels cheap. Mounting options are severely limited. You can basically carry it straight up an down on strong side for traditional draw, on your left side for left hand reverse draw, or maybe a horizontal small of the back right handed draw. The problem is that the belt loop portion is not reversible. There are only screw holes on one side of it, so your options are really limited. I had planned on making this an EDC, but it'll probably never leave the house now, because of the sheath. If you're willing to spend extra money on a custom sheath, go for it. If not, but something else with a decent sheath, and skip this knife.

Wonderful purchase
This knife is exactly what I was looking for. It has good weight to it and its really sharp. The side holster is ok I thought it came with a shoulder holster.
