KALINOU

Recoil - - I’ll Be In My Office -

411:

While the karam­bit’s his­tory is murky, most schol­ars agree that it orig­i­nated in In­done­sia as an agri­cul­tural tool and later be­came weaponized for com­bat and war­fare. The Kalinou is def­i­nitely not meant to har­vest crops. With its curved blade, G-10 han­dle scales, and black PVD coat­ing, this karam­bit can be a deadly im­ple­ment in the hands of a skilled war­rior trained in In­done­sian silat, Filipino kali, or other South­east Asian fight­ing sys­tems. Avail­able with a stonewashed fin­ish for 10 bucks cheaper ($175).

PROS:

The N690Co blade is tough, ra­zor sharp, and highly cor­ro­sion re­sis­tant.

Comes with a solid Ky­dex sheath

The karam­bit’s shape is ideal for pierc­ing-an­drip­ping tech­niques, as well as trap­ping limbs in close quar­ters.

CONS:

The Kalinou’s ex­treme cres­cent moon shape makes it less ver­sa­tile as an ev­ery­day carry (EDC) tool.

For those un­fa­mil­iar with silat or kali, there’s def­i­nitely a learn­ing curve when us­ing a karam­bit.
