Inspired by nature, humans were not born with claws, but being the innovative species we are, for agriculture and fighting - such a claw like weapon, the Karambit, was first believed to have been inspired by a Tiger in the Jungles of Sumatra. Over centuries, it spread throughout South East Asia and was refined and changed at every pit stop. But now, hundreds of years later, DEFCON evolves this design to its ultimate conclusion - deliberately giving it a shorter blade based on the Filipino philosophy that suggests a shorter blade takes advantage of human biomechanics and allows for more powerful cuts and more painful ripping wounds.. And just try disarming someone with a well made Karambit and count your fingers afterwards..
In addition to its obvious self defense benefits, its small size makes it a great tool for fishing, farming and camping.
