    I've been scouring the internet for news on it but there doesn't seem to be any new information. Anyone have a clue if there are more specs, videos, or release date information? I saw one of the retailers post a preorder but I can't find anything else on it!

    I want one!
    Sal if you're reading this feel free to send me a prototype or production model for review :)

    This is how I know this thing is going to sell like hotcakes.

    I'm not even that big on karambits and even I'm probably going to get one.:D

    I have never bought a Karambit or a Hawkbill, but I got some Karahawk money burnin' a hole in my pocket!

    Nice, actually like the look of the wave on this one. I'm curious to see how this one feels in the hand...

    Nice thanks!

    That's I stout looking karambit. And a wave. I'll have to pick one up.

    Hi wqorship,

    Thanx for the interest. We just received a message that the production was pushed back a month. I'm guessing in the next 60 days barring any other unforseen problems.

    The prototype that I have is still being used by me, so I'm sorry, I can't send it to you .:eek:

    I have to say it's nice when the owner of a company makes himself available to his customers. Other companies should follow your lead.

    My pre-order is in. I'm ready! But my Emerson doesn't like this at all. I think I have enough love for both.

    I've got mine pre-ordered. I hate waiting but I'm sure this one is worth it.

    This is definitely one on my "gotta have" list. I just hope that they offer it in Spyderedge as well as plain edge. To me a Hawkbill of any type is so superior with a Spyderedge. Now don't get me wrong because Hawkbills with plain edges do have their place and I own a few of them already.
    But I do most of my pull cutting jobs with a serrated Spyderco Hawkbill whether it be the Harpy or the Spyderhawk for big jobs. The Spyderedged versions can just rip through about anything that you can cut or sever with a knife.

    I'm not really big on the Karambit type knives overall but I see this one in a different light all together. This one really looks like a martial arts version of Harpy more or less. I'm in but I sure want one in Spyderdge.

    Hi JD,

    Current plan is plain edge only. We'll hide'n'watch reception and determine future runs from demand.

    Preordered mine a week ago. It will be my first karambit and I can barely wait. Its the first folding karambit that I actually like the design of. The fox and emerson karambits just doesnt look as appealing.

    I've carried an Emerson Super Karambit for years now and I really want it to have some EDC competition. Really looking forward to this. :)

    Thanks for the update Sal!

    Definitely looking forward to this knife! I love that the clip can be switched around for left side carry and/or forward draw (my preference for karambits).
