), from the karambit blade family. Originally, karambit was created in distant times in Malaysia and the Philippines, and its shape was inspired by the claws of large predatory cats. Characteristic for its construction were a curved blade and an inverted handle with a finger hole. The MK-05 Claw

(orange color with black epoxy inserts
