Pros: Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Great Karambit to start out with.
After sharpening it the blade has kept it's edge after use. The grip is solid. The sheath is quite sturdy as well. It's legal for me to carry so on days that I don't carry a firearm this works out great. It's positively held in by the sheath, but easy to draw. I didn't, and wont use the shoulder mount that came with it, but it fits on a belt just fine. While I'm shopping around for a higher quality steel karambit this will work out just fine.

Good, not great
I am an experienced knife wielder. I would never claim to be an expert, but have done a significant amount of flipping and throwing blades around. There are some problems with this blade for me. The finger grooves in the handle force your hand to a certain position. If your hand is not in the right size range ( I am 172 cm tall, 72kgs) then the handle forces you to a sub optimal grip. Makes it difficult to grip for spinning. The finger ring has a hump on it. Flipping the blade backward is no problem, but when reversing direction the sharp edge catches on your skin. Uncomfortable. The blade is too heavy, too large, and the finger ring diameter too large for tricks. The weight spins it off your finger when doing multiple rotations. One in either directional rotation is easy, but when you are doing a good Lou Diamond Phillips impression, the blade will come off of your finger. Since a karambit can't be carried around, and we don't live along fury road these issues make this blade sort of useless for me. That said.... This blade is wicked. Great styling, and has the weight of a tool that you can rely on to do is job (evisceration in this case). The black finish is exactly what you think it will look like, and the steel came with a reasonable edge. If the handle grooves are the right size for your grip and fingers, I am sure you would really like the handle too. I haven't bought every karambit, but I have knives, and for the price this is a solid blade. I will be getting a different karambit though, because the point is tricks and concealment - this knife isn't good for either of those things.
