The Bark River Karambit Ghost II is a highly collectible, low production knife that is a must have for any serious collector. Designed by Karambit making legend, Scott Horn of Airborne Knives, this blade is at the ready and comfortable in blade up or blade down use. Scott's knives have seen duty in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.
Measures 6.6" overall with a 3.5" blade made of A-2 tool steel at 58-60 HRC. At .187" thick these Karambit knives for sale will cut through and destroy anything you throw at them. A highly sculpted ergonomic handle not only looks super cool but also provides a sure grip in any situation. Comes with a leather carry sheath.
This knife comes extremely sharp and the rough corners on the grip are smoothed, very happy with my purchase.

very nice knife. Had to look at a few of the knives to find one where the knuckle duster was not ground correctly and was out of round. I had mine sent back to the factory and they double edged it for free! Both edges are quite sharp. Handles are very nice also. Knife could have a bit more attention to detail for a 5 star rating but, an excellent knife for the price. All the guys at DLT were very nice and I would do business with them anytime.

Let me start off by saying, I am not a not a knife expert nor a combat expert. I've been in the sandbox a few times as a contractor, but am in no way military trained or an operator. Currently I own about 50 knives of all different shapes in sizes. The reasons I purchased this tool is because I wanted something to toss into my go bag that would be for protection only. But enough about me.
The Company (Bark River)
I love Bark River Knives. I currently own 3 of them (Bravo 1, EDC, and know The Ghost II). I stumbled across them while looking for a camping/hunting knife (Bravo 1). If you look at any forum or blog, there is always someone praising Bark River, so I decided to look into them. Most notable thing to mention is that they are right here in the USA. They use a variety steels and materials to create there knives and tools. To have this many options is great. The customer service is excellent. I had a sheath issue (my fault) and they sent a new one, no questions asked. Very friendly and helpful. I can't say enough to convey how awesome they are.

This was my first purchase from this company and I will continue buying only from them. The service they offer is outstanding. I had the back of the knife sharpened to be double edged and my initials engraved on the blade. This was all done very quickly and arrived at my door two weeks after ordering. Very impressed.
Let me state, this is not an all around tool. This is strictly for offensive or defensive fighting. This is not something to cut cord, or camping chores or open boxes with (although it can do all of these things).
The knife came shaving sharp right out of the box (both sides). The A2 steel was oiled well and the sheath and blade were packaged very well, and arrived with no damages. The chunky handle fits very well in my medium sized hands, and the weight is very manageable.
The reason I rated this 4 stars instead of 5, is due to my personal preference and nothing to do with the item itself. The knuckle at the butt of the knife has very sharp spikes for hammering or punching. This is great as this is a fighting knife, but makes it a bear to conceal. I find that if I sit too fast while concealing this blade the spikes will dig into my flesh. You can remedy this if you carry outside your shirt, but then you cannot conceal it.
This is a great fighting knife and I will be going for training for this blade shortly. If you are on the fence about this knife, buy it. I do not regret it at all.
