I love this knife, the fit and finish is top notch. The blade is wicked sharp. It is everything it is supposed to be. My new EDC.
It is a fantastic knife. The quality and functionality of this karambit is second to none. Even if you carry a fire arm for self-defense you should also carry a good quality combat knife and you can't go wrong with a Fox karambit.
Awesome knife. Extremely sharp straight out of the box and small enough to comfortably carry in your pocket. I have really big XL hands and this one fits really well.
Awesome knife, excellent craftsmanship, fast opening and easy to carry. Love the wave opener! Oso Grande was great to deal with, shipping was fast and I didn't have to wait weeks for delivery.
I carry my Fox 479 daily. The handle is very comfortable and gives an excellent non-slip grip. I've also got an Emerson Super Karambit and they are almost identical in size. My 479 was very sharp straight out of the box and it has kept it's edge for several months. I really love the ring guard and the fact that it is made from a single solid piece of metal as it provides a much more comfortable grip than does my Emerson Super Karambit.
Hands Down the best personal defense weapon and EDC I've come across. Deploys faster than a switchblade. Superb grip, lightweight, and ambidextrous. Recommended for anyone not just the well trained. Be careful the blade is razor sharp out of the box.
PS big shout out to osogrande. Service was fantastic and the ship Time to Canada was like four days, amazing!!!
