Synthetic Karambit

15.00€

Practice makes perfect, and so it is with knife-fighting skills. Before reaching levels of excellence, however, that practice should be conducted in relative safety. That is now possible with these synthetic training knives. Practice weapons of all kinds always have to balance realism with safety. If the weapon is too realistic it will function like the real weapon and there is a risk of serious and unnecessary injury. If the weapon however is too soft and bendy, it will be useless as a training tool as it will move and act differently from the real deal. The material used in this synthetic weapon is Santoprene, which combines the best qualities of rubber and polypropylene.

The blade is slightly flexible to prevent the likelihood of most bodily injury. The edges are rounded and the tip of the blade has been shaped as a ball for added safety. For sufficient realism, however, the blade has to be firm enough, and not wobble. Therefore even a synthetic blade might cause injury, especially to the face or the eyes, so appropriate protection must be utilized at all times when using this training knife.

The karambit is a small Southeast Asian curved knife resembling a claw, and in the west mainly used as a weapon for tactical self defence. This Karambit has been carefully fashioned to look as realistic as possible, so it can be effectively used in solo practice, training drills, disarm drills, and demonstrations, or any other activity where you want a reasonably close approximation of realism but not the extreme danger and risk associated with an actual knife. The handle of the Karambit is textured for a good grip. This trainer is affordable, functional and very durable.

Very nice and finished piece that looks good and functions well as a training tool in martial arts, as a demonstration piece or as an accessory for your reenactment- or LARP-gear. Manufacturer: Cold Steel.

Overall Length 23,2 cm, blade length 10,2 cm, handle 13 cm. Weight 90 g.
