The Boker Magnum Spike Karambit perfectly combines size, durability, and functionality. This full-size, budget-friendly karambit uses a minimalistic, yet contemporary, design profile. While this curved knife is larger than most fixed blade karambits, the balance and ergonomics remain perfect. The Magnum Spike karambit is not a great candidate for concealed carry due to its 4″ long blade, but it is perfect for utility and field applications.
With a single edge, deep belly, and full tang construction, you can make short work of, well, any work you’ve got to do, including cutting rope, breaking down boxes, and hacking through vines or wires. The solid construction and entry-level price is ideal for first responders. The safety ring and textured G10 handle scales enhance grip security and allows for use in all kinds of environments and conditions.
This is a simple, straight forward karambit with no bells or whistles, but it’s solidly built and, for the price of around $72, you can’t beat the performance.
