Easily one of the best fixed blade value Karambits made, we take a close look at the Cold Steel “Steel Tiger.” Weighing less than 7 oz, this hawkbill fixed blade knife is easy to carry in many systems. AUS8A steel, plastic sheath, stonewashed finish, and a perfect grip with kraton covering and security ring round out the Steel Tiger. I talk to its POU and compare it against the CS Recon knives for an interesting discussion of versatility. Originally designed as an agricultural tool, the karambit merged into martial blade arts and is highly regarded there. I bring you one of the best fixed blade options for this type and its price alone is enough reason to get one for testing.
