This karambit is a hybrid cross between two ancient warrior cultures. This classic East Asian weapon features art derived from the ancient Nordic culture of the Vikings. The hand-engraved runes and artwork give this piece a unique, rugged, and battle-scarred look. The aggressive blade shape is perfect for hook/whip strikes, while the spine of the blade features a devastating saw-back edge. The handle is made from cocobolo wood with ring-knot pattern carved into the surface. This knife also comes with a hand-made distressed, leather sheath that matches the rugged look of this blade.

This is the third item I’ve ordered from blackguard customs. I have been very pleased with the workmanship, delivery and communication on all three.
Worth the wait for sure! Very pleased with the craftsmanship of this knife. The engraving was very impressive as well!
If there is some form of metal blade that you've always wanted but could never find, I highly suggest you drop these good folks a line. You will not regret it.
I always wanted a trench knife but could only ever find cheap novelty ones. So, I filled out one of Blackguard customs custom order forms and waited. But not for long. (SIDE BAR: I honestly don't believe I ever waited more than an hour for a response from BGC. Which is incredible theses days.) I had my mock up shortly there after. I wanted to change the color scheme so they did that and I approved the mock up. I was given a timeframe. Which they totally nailed. I wont say what I was charged... but I will say when I made the purchase I was happy with the cost. That is until I actually got my knife. It was everything I wanted and then some. Blackguard totally delivered. Buy with confidence that you are going to get some of the best bladesmithing available.
One on the coolest things I have ever bought. The detail is amazing. Nailed it!
My knife is an awesome work of art and quality...I will definitely look at another custom order from these guys.
