The Tactical Toucan

It's one of those names that you’ll never be able to get out of your head! When I started designing this knife I saw a void where there was a big need. There are a lot of Karambits out in the world, but there are only a small number of knife companies that make them fold...  Fortunately, we do both!


The blade deploys via an adjustable/sliding thumb stud. The adjustment allows you to move the stud to optimize your hand positioning and to deploy the blade from the pocket with almost no effort.

The heart of any Karambit is the blade, but without the ring it's a hawkbill folder. This knife was designed to be used with or without the ring -- effectively making it either a Karambit or a Hawkbill folder -- to suit whatever task you may have for it. The ring is easily removable with the included tools, without taking the knife completely apart.

Speaking of the ring...  It has a ceramic glass breaker built into the forward striking portion of the ring, so if you need to escape a vehicle through a window you can leave the blade closed and easily break through the glass!

The handles are textured and lightened so it is easy to use and easy to carry without weighing you down. 

Over the last several years I have been making button lock folders and truly enjoy how quickly/easily/and smoothly a button lock will deploy. I also appreciate the fact that a button lock is significantly stronger than a leaf/frame/liner lock.

I hope you appreciate and enjoy the effort I put into our first folding Karambit design!
