Historically, the karambit has been a knife for self-defense and agriculture use and while it is still used for these purposes, the karambit is also a great knife for the outdoors. Built to perform at all times, the SOG Gambit Karambit is designed to handle multiple uses including personal protection, utility tasks and more. It has a 2 3/5” 7Cr17MoV sheepsfoot, full-tang satin polished blade and an ergonomic glass-reinforced nylon handle to make it comfortable in both forward and reverse grip. Resembling a claw, the hooked blade offers added functionality for hooking, tearing, and ripping. The Gambit comes with a hard nylon sheath for easy carry.
