Spyderco C170GBBKP Karahawk

The Karahawk is a highly evolved folding version of the traditional Southeast Asian karambit. Its gently curved hawkbill blade is precision machined from VG-10 stainless steel and features both our Trademark Round Hole and an Emerson Opening Feature to ensure swift, positive blade deployment. It is supported by a high-strength back lock mechanism designed to withstand the stresses of defensive use and mated to a handle constructed of full skeletonized stainless steel liners capped with textured G-10 scales.

The handle features a ring at the butt to facilitate traditional karambit manipulation techniques and is sized to keep the knife exceptionally compact and easy to carry. New and improved, the ring on the current version of the Karahawk is reinforced with a machined G-10 insert and its edges radiused and polished for high-speed manipulation. A reversible hourglass clip supports tip-up standard-grip and reverse-grip carry on both sides of the body.

Brand

Spyderco

Spyderco was founded in 1976 by Sal and Gail Glesser. In 1981, the Glessers put down roots in Golden, Colorado and introduced the first Spyderco folding knife. That knife pioneered the concept of a round hole in the blade for one-handed opening, a clip on the handle for carry at the top of the pocket, and the option of a serrated edge for aggressive cutting performance. Since then, Spyderco has steadily grown to become one of the leaders in the cutlery industry. In addition to a worldwide distribution network and manufacturing resources in the U.S., Japan, Taiwan, Italy, and China. Those Who Know, Carry Spyderco.
