Ultimate Knives 599 FOX Karambit Folding Knife is a functional blade that was first introduced in the Indonesian archipelago. However, it is believed by some that this unique design originated in Malaysia or the Philippines. The knife was originally designed to be a working folding knife and dates back to the 6th century. This unusual but functional design was first introduced into the United States at the end of the 1800s but was only put into use by the mid 1900s.
In Europe it was first introduced in 1970 and 1980 for use in several martial arts disciplines like the Indonesian Pencak Silat, the Malaysian Bursilat and the Pilipino Kali. Today the Karambit Folding Knife is the next generation of
Folding Knives. With the advantage of the Emerson “Wave Shaped Opening Feature” (Patent #5,878,500), this is one of the finest personal defense weapons ever developed.
