    Doing some research for myself, I came across this article at, about folding karambit knives. It shows one method for deploying a folding karambit knife directly into an attack move, and how police officers can defend against this surprise attack.

    I've never used a karambit (folding or not) but the technique shown is similar to my deployment of the folding knife I do carry, which has a thumb-assist stud and clips to the front pocket of my pants.

    I thought this article might be helpful for those who use folding karambits in martial arts, and those officers who face people who might carry one for less altruistic purposes.

    That was an interesting article. I have a folding kerambit but not a waved one, so it doesn't open automatically. But I certainly see the LEO concern. As the author states, it's very hard to dislodge.
