Mine came super dull. I fixed it but it took some effort to sharpen. The design is awesome and feels comfortable. The sheath is good as well. Once you sharpen the blade this knife is a beast.
I ordered both the polished and the black Hibbon Claw II. This review is for the black one. The Sheath is good and holds the knife well. The snap closure does not actually hold the blade in, I can pull it out without unsnapping the closure, but have to unsnap it to re-sheath. The blade will not fall out even though the closure is not tight. The belt clip is very tight and holds the sheath securely on my belt. Now for the knife: The black one was significantly less sharp than the polished one, so much so that it was basically useless until I sharpened it. It is NOT difficult to sharpen as some reviews stated. It takes a little work and patience but it is not difficult. Once I got it sharpened it was a handy little blade and with the sheath, it conceals well. The blade itself feels very solid and the finish was nice and smooth, no rough edges, no tool markings, just a well finished piece. And for the price, and a few minutes sharpening, how could you go wrong?
This is one of the better karambits available from BUDK. The curve/angle of many of the others are too shallow (almost hawkbills) and/or small (at least for my adult hand). Measurements: Outside Edge (convex) - 7cm. Inside Edge (concave) - 5.5cm. Rear Brake ~13cm. Front Brake ~10.5cm. Safety Ring Circumference (Inside) - 8cm. Thumb Rise ~3.5cm. Total Outside Length ~23cm. Thickness -3.5mm. Appreciate the extra holes to mount home made grips. The sheath is a nice leather with strong clip and fits with added grips. As you can see from the pictures the Inside Edge does not have much of a curve which makes it easier to sharpen I use whetstone, diamond steel and strop and go for about 25 degree angle/50 included. I AM TIRED OF SEEING PEOPLE COMPLAINING SHIPPED DULL, ETC.' FOLKS, IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO SHARPEN/MAINTAIN YOUR BLADE YOU SHOULD PROBABLY NOT OWN IT. Other notes: I don't know what a 'henadgrip design is' or what makes it unique. ALL karambits should be able to be held in two positions (blade 'up' or blade 'down'). I wish it was offered in a carbon steel, but the GH2028 is usable/workable.
Out of the box this knife was very dull. But after thinking about it I'm glad it was. That gave me the option to sharpen it the way I wanted it. It's to small for my hands but fits my girlfriends hands perfect. Oh and John form NNJ. The top edge as you call it should never be sharp. It's a striking edge. The inside edge should be razor sharp. Go on you tube and let someone show you how to use a karambit. I say Gil Hibben made a homerun for the women on this one.
These are great little Karambits. I have a few - sure the don't all come sharp, but it isn't that difficult to fix with some patience, a round file and a round diamond. It isn't meant to be a EDC chore blade, it has only one real purpose. I will say that the top point at the end of the top edge - right by the thumb ramp is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS to the user. File it down to a smooth transition. Otherwise your thumb will slide just a little at some point and you will slice it wide open.
Got it the other day. The shipping was no problem, the knife on the other hand was. It couldn't cut butter. Extremely dull. Karambit's are a pain in the ass to sharpen so it kinda sucks. The knife is cool dont get me wrong but it's gonna take some work to get sharp.
