It continues to be a busy year for Poltergeist Works‘s Jakub Wieczorkiewicz. After debuting the second Phenomena custom and rolling out multiple production models for Real Steel Knives, Wieczorkiewicz is back with the RSK Shade, the first karambit in the Real Steel lineup.
RSK bills the Shade as a an ultra-safe and rugged folding karambit design. Its hawkbill blade is 2.36 inches long and less curved than many hawkbills. D2 semi stainless, an increasingly common sight on RSK designs, is the blade steel here, and the sole opening method is a thumb hole.
I like the design. It is a karambit, but looks to be actually useful as a cutting tool as well.View Linked Article
