this was my first purchase from true swords, and man is it the real deal. the handle is great, the blade seems sturdy, and the sheath looks alright. drawing it is a little awkward and it's one of those "stubborn but lets go suddenly" sheaths that makes you draw it too quickly. the harness setup is sort of just weird and uncomfortable but the blade is sharp out of the box and the point is pretty savage. i'm pleased overall with the purchase and i look forward to ordering more products from true swords in general.
Great knife, looks good and is sharp out of the box, but the harness is awful. Would defientaly recommend this blade to anyone that like knifes.
Great knife for self defense or utility. The sheath with it also has belt loops so you can wear it on your belt if you don't want to use the shoulder rig. I love the knife and I am very happy with it. Shoulder rig isn't as bad as people say and it's quite comfortable but I prefer to where it on my belt. I would recommend this knife to anyone from a martial artist, a security gaurd or someone who will only use it to cut boxes.
I like the blade, it seems sturdy. However my problem with this product lies in the shoulder strap. Its awkward and is not the one displayed in the picture or on the box. There is no strap that continues under the arm to attach back to the knife, the strap ends with the loop to the other arm. so while still functional, i feel it is not as sturdy as it could be. Also due to the shape of the blade, you can not draw the knife with your right hand as stated from another review, and when you do draw with your left it feels awkward and it comes out backwards where as the blade is pointed towards yourself and the finger grip is in your palm instead of your fingers. I am assuming this is because they assume you are drawing with your right hand not your left, but due to the lefty harness, its backwards. And you cant just switch the sheath to your right side because the blade pulls out left: again the awkward draw. I believe the sheath design and knife are just not compatible, no matter which way you place it, the design of the knife makes any draw an awkward and backwards one. An easier draw for this blade would be a cross draw at the waist like a sword, or a draw at the outer thigh like a pistol holster. But then you loose the concealment factor, guess its just not the right type of knife to do a shoulder harness.
I've used an original one of these in a self defense fight once it's sliced through the guys flesh like water, no clue how one from this site would handle though. So I'll give it a 4 for now.
This easily became one of my favorite knives, if not my most favorite! I love the karambit design and how many different uses it has. This site is amazing. Cheap prices and, great quality and fast shipping!
Love at first slice. just to test how sharp it was i rubbed mi finger over it and if i was going all out id be missing a chunk. The sad part is that the tip bent and broke off and now my blade look pitiful. did not even have it for 2 weeks. but i may still get another one. the harness...eh its okay. if your right handed like me just come up with a way to make it work or become ambidextrous with blade drawing.
Well, The Shoulder Strap Is Kinda Awkward. Has A Suspender Type Clip That Clips To Your Belt, And An Elastic Loop That Goes Around Your Arm, But The Knife Overall Is Great, SUPER Sharp Out The Box, Feels Great In The Hand, And Stays In The Sheath Well, Almost A Little Too Well, Kinda Hard To Get It Out Sometimes.
The blade is awesome. Good grip, solid make, and comes pre-sharpened. I've already poked a few holes in myself messing around with it. But its a good idea to have a stone on hand for further sharpening.The shoulder rig is a bit uncomfortable to deal with at first, but once you fit it to yourself and wear it for awhile, you get real use to it real quick.As per usual, shipping was good and the item came in great condition. If your looking for a good self-defense weapon than your golden. But its bigger than you'd expect. It CAN be concealed but only under thicker clothing, or if you have it strapped directly to your body. If not, then here you go. Pick this sweet fella up. Definitely a good blade to around.
very nice and stable good for outdoor uses the strap was for left handers though
