    Pardon the drawing but this was done on my phone. I've owned a handful of kerambits and I've always wondered why they seemed so... straight. I think this would be more effective.

    As always, Rob will git-r-done.

    Don't have much if a basis for my opinion but I've always thought the straighter karambits looked wrong. I have no idea if there is a situation where a straighter one would be more ideal.

    I don't own, nor have I used one, though I do like the look of the Brous Enforcer.

    It seems to me a straighter edge kind of defeats the purpose of a karambit.

    I share your confusion. A wharnie or hawkbill in revearse grip is pretty much what you get without the right arc. There's less distance to travel to hit your target and parrying is easier with a more curved blade, at least from my experience. Nice blade buddy.

    I find this to be about the ideal angle for trapping - cutting and slashing.

    Ended up ordering a Coogler custom Nemesis. I specified left hand clip and removed thumb stud.
