Worth every penny Reviewed by Eli Garcia on Mar 16, 2017   5 out of 5

I finally added the Honshu karambit to my collection and was not disappointed. The knife is larger than most karambits but that's a good thing because I'm a large guy and fits great in my hands. The weight feels good and with a little sharpening, could be an awesome blade. Single edge blade, rubber molded on grip and a hard sheath/harness. The harness is quite pointless however it can be made into a good hip holster/sheath with a little creativity so do keep it. For the money, it's a great knife!

Holster issue Reviewed by on Jun 28, 2016   3 out of 5

I like the knife and with a little bit of sharpening, it is very nice. The holster is in question. If you are right handed, no matter what configuration, it is difficult to get the knife out of the holster. With the curve of the knife, it is very unwieldy to draw the knife from the holster and it is almost as if it is designed for a left handed draw which is not the best if you are right handed. I also felt the clamp to the belt was cheap and designed like a suspender. I replaced it with a decent piece and belt loop like a pistol holster. It is more secure and I had a seamstress put a magnetic snap to allow for a more custom way to allow for different carry options.

Great Karambit! Reviewed by on Sep 16, 2015   5 out of 5

Awesome knife that's well made. Feels indestructible! Ultra sharp out of the box. Comes with a kydex scabbard that holds very well. Overall a wonderful buy!

Practice makes perfect Reviewed by on Sep 05, 2015   3 out of 5

After hesitating for about a year, I finally decided enough was enough, it was time to add this karambit to my lineup. Before that, I purchased a couple Black Legion karambits here at BudK, which are good blades too. Those Black Legions have a smaller grip, and didn't fit my hand. This knife is about 20% bigger, and fits my hand much better. This sheath is quite a bit better as well, it should stay sheathed and I tried to dislodge it but couldn't I have learned something about sheaths that are "complementary" and "included" with a good number of blades, here and everywhere else. You will quite likely want to see a case maker, to create something just right for you. After all, knife fighting and self-defense are critical to survival, and so is being able to access, deploy and re-sheath your blade. First of all, if you like the karambit line, this is a great blade, go on, order it (or two); it'll make you smile with satisfaction and confidence. Next when you get it; PRACTICE your moves. Ask a friend to help you figure this out, so you'll need a couple of these blades to practice with. Soon after that, it's quite likely you'll want a custom sheath, do that too. Because these blades are great, and the sheath is a second thought. I was a case maker, take a hint and get to know your blades, and seek ways to use them for your needs. Every person has a different body style, and ideas about how to use a blade to defend themselves. Once you decide how you want to carry it, practice using it. The videos used here are for demonstration purposes, and I love 'em. Sometimes they even make me cringe! lol But if someone stopped you in a dark parking lot, and this was your only way out, you'll wish you practiced, and knew more about how to deploy, and just as important; re-sheath your blade. Imagine some geek fumbling around in the dark, getting his karambit stuck in his jacket? Don't do that! Should you own a Honshu Karambit? You bet your ass you should, especially if you want to win and walk away. BudK you guys are doing an awesome job, you have exemplary shipping, great systems in place for customer service, never seem to be out of anything, and prices? hands down, great way to defend yourself. Thank you BudK, keep up the great work.

Great Knife Reviewed by Dave on Mar 05, 2015   4 out of 5

This knife is awesome! The shoulder holster is pretty much junk. So that's why I gave it only four stars. The knife is razor sharp out of the box. Fits my hand like it was made just for me. This knife has moved up to almost number one for me.

Great blade Reviewed by Toron on Feb 20, 2015   4 out of 5

Great blade for self defense. Blade came sharp and the all black look is great for concealment. Only set back is the sheath seems to be cheap plastic. Also don't think I would ever use the shoulder harness. Coming across my body to grab my knife doesn't really sound to ideal. Not like it's a katana

Good knife Reviewed by Mitch on Jan 31, 2015   3 out of 5

Like most of the knives I've received lately from budk, it was DULL and needed a lot of sharpening. The harness is decent if your a lefty, overall, after some work it is a good knife.
