“The Kerambit EOD is based on a 13th century Southeast Asian blade design,” said designer Justin Gingrich, founder of Ranger Knives, which became the Ontario Ranger line. “Kerambit translates as ‘claw of the tiger’ and can be used with a traditional forward grip or with a reverse grip fighting style.”
The full-tang Kerambit is made from a ¼-inch thick 5160-carbon alloy steel blade and an incredibly durable machined micarta handle. It is 7.5 inches overall with a 3-inch blade that is powder coated to protect the metal from the elements. Designed specifically for the US Marine Corps EOD unit operating down range, the Kerambit features a pommel ring with jimping to the bottom of the ring and the rear of the blade to provide for maximum purchase. The Kerambit includes a Kydex® belt loop sheath that is MOLLE compatible. It is truly The Knife You Need When You Need a Knife®.
