Introduction: Emerson-style Karambit (Updated)
UPDATE!!! I HAVE TIDIED THE KNIFE UP, ADDED GROOVES ON THE HANDLE, JIMPING ON THE BACK OF THE BLADE, AND CARVED OUT THE "WAVE"
I love Emerson Knives. Sadly, I am too poor to buy any of their blades at the moment. So, until I can afford one, I decided to make a fixed blade version of the Emerson Combat Karambit. It's not pretty, but it is one of the best knives I've ever made. The blade is cut from a high carbon circular saw blade I got at Walmart for 3 bucks. The handle scales are cut from a piece 1/8" steel bar I had lying around. I used some JB Weld to secure the scales and added some nails for pins to reinforce everything. The knife is very heavy; I'm not sure what the exact weight is, but I'd say it's around 7-8 oz. Tools used were:
Various drill bits
Overall, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
The real knife, forward opening.
