SWZ18: ST Vandal Karambit
Schwartz Tactical Knives
The ST Vandal Karambit marries ultra light Schwartz Tactical manufacturing methods with the popular karambit blade style. The Schwartz Tactical Carbon Fiber Titanium Karambit features a Carbon Fiber laminate with a full titanium core. Since titanium is softer than steel, the Carbon Fiber Titanium Vengeance Karambit's 2.75 inch cutting edge features a thin layer of tungsten carbide to reinforce the titanium cutting edge for better edge retention. It is a perfect fit for a lighweight tactical and non-detectable self-defense fighting knife. The Carbon fiber and titanium construction measures 6.0 inches from blade tip to the center of the 1.0 inch diameter finger ring and 6.5 inches overall. The handle is wrapped in 550 paracord and the Holstex sheath is molded specifically to the blade for an excellent fit. This lightweight karambit weighs in at a mere 1.8 ounces and 2.6 oz. including the sheath.
The ST Vandal brings aggressive styling to the Schwartz Tactical line of karambits. The double edged carbon fiber and titanium blade features serrations on one edge. It measures 6 inches from blade tip to the center of the 1 inch diameter finger ring. The handle is wrapped in 550 paracord and the Holstex material sheath is molded specifically to the blade for a secure fit. The blade is sharpened on both sides and a layer of tungsten carbide is applied to the 2.75 inch blade to reinforce the titanium cutting edge.
