I trained in H2H when I was younger. One test from a black belt by the age of 14. (Couldnt afford it).

I always loved close combat defense, but I haven't trained in years. I was thinking about getting one of these as an EDC for defense and general use. I really like the DART, but I didnt know if these were legal..

Both come with a trainer kit also if purchased.

Anyone have either of these? The art of the Karambit has always amazed me, and to see the design with a straight blade makes it more EDC friendly. Id love to learn to train with one of these. Its amazing how my previous training has kicked in for certain situations and I dont even realize it until after. I would like to be proficient in something along the lines of a Karambit, but I have a feeling they are illegal.

I use to carry a hook assisted opening knife when I lived in NJ, but it was cheap and there was no retention to the knife.

Blade length is less than 3" so it should be legal without a needing a permit. Switch blades/knives with a button used to deploy the blade are not legal. Assisted opening knives like a kershaw speedsafe are legal. However, make sure you read up on the laws yourself.

Is that hook on the back of the blade a bottle opener?

Could be haha, But its to assist opening. You can catch it on anything to open the blade. My old knife didnt have such a hook, but I was good at opening it off things if needed.

I know a guy who did knife/MMA training and he caries a practice knife that is curved like the Karambit. It is not sharp at all but he said it works just fine for self defense.
