    Mahalo Gears,

    Yeah, the blade geometry came out pretty well, and the grind lines are all even. Plus, this sucker came SHARP... :shocked:

    God bless! :angel:


    Mahalo godcode,

    Thank you...I just wish it was "good looking enough" to make your avatar smile. :lolhammer:
    God bless and again, thank you! :angel:


    Whoa...coming from a Famous knifemaker dude like you, that is REALLY saying something!!! :shocked:
    God bless and mahalo famous maker of the legendary SBK's!!! :bow:


    Thanks LZ,

    Hope you are right on this one, and sorry for not "igniting" the GITD eyes in that skull...will do so in a bit. :winkwink:

    God bless and will be in touch! :angel:


    Aloha wmcamp0,

    They can be found overseas NOW, but for us in the USA, we gotta wait a bit longer... :brickwall:

    Mahalo and God bless! :angel:


    Pppffftttttt...no way. Did you see the blades that came outta Jango's gauntlet to prevent him from slipping of the tower in AOTC??? :winkwink: Well, not exactly along the lines of this Chadrambit, but more like :batman:

    God bless bro! :angel:


    Mahalo crossroads,

    I have it on me now...the size verse weight thing is very deceptive... :winkwink:

    God bless!!! :angel:

    :lolhammer: Mr. Famous Knifemaker Dude...I am FAR from being "famous"...

    About the Chadrambit, I was curious to see if it'd cut on the spin and sure enough, when it did, I immediately "transformed" into Idiot Mode, and filmed the "flicks" below...no pun intended. :shocked:

    Thanks for checking them out bro, er...sir.

    God bless! :highfive:

    Please, ya'll:

    Let everybody know when they're available. The Boker USA site says January 2009. I've never owned a karambit, nor really seen the purpose, but I like the CLB Karambit very much. Looks like Daywalker has hit one out of the park with this design!

    If I can talk my editor into it, maybe I can do a review of it for the online pub I write for occasionally. I want to be one of the first to write about it!

    Thanks,
    Dirty Bob

    Mahalo Dirty Bob,

    Wow, what an honor! :highfive: Thanks for your kind words! HOWEVER:

    I just busted the 'biner on my "Chadrambit"... :explode: Now, I am not sure if I had one that "got by QC", but on the G10 side of the knife, the 'biner was held only in the G10, and not placed into the SS liner beneath it. SO...from all the on/off of the belt loop and probably from messing with grip changes, the 'biner wore a groove in the G10 and will not stay in place anymore. :rant:

    I have informed Boker Germany of this matter, but have yet to hear from them. (They are all at the SHOT). Until further though...EVERYONE PLEASE wait a bit before picking up this one.

    I just REALLY pray that I will be the ONLY one to have gone through this "experience"... :sigh:

    God bless and sorry folks! :angel:

    PS: FWIW, I asked my friend in the UK who sent me the Chadrambit to check his new one that I had Boker Germany send him, and he said the 'biner appeared to be stronger than the one he sent me, but I have also asked him to check the G10 side regarding the 'biner placement. :shrug:

    This looks like a very nice and affordable karambit, think I will add one of these to my collection :)

    Any word on the biner?
