FOX Chiroptera Karambit FX-590 Folding Knife
- Made by Fox Knives in Italy -
Design by: "Richard Derespina"
I based this Karambit’s blade profile on a Bat’s Wing (Chiroptera). The blade like the Bat’s wing is an extension of the user. Humans, however, must train to become comfortable with the blade, thereby creating the necessary muscle memory for instinctive responses.
