The Original Devil’s Claw was designed to be a deep conceal knife with a handle that is short on purpose for concealment in almost any outfit. Of course, the design was so reminiscent of karambits that it was only a matter of time before it got a makeover to become one.
The blade shape, materials, and thicknesses are the same on the Devil's Claw 2 as those from the original. The hawkbill blade shape is a proven design for utility and defense tactics. It bites deep on pulling cuts and on slashes. So whether you're using it for self-defense or opening boxes, it'll do the job quick and easy. The only real update between this and the original is that the handle has been extended to fit the user's full hand and the ring added to the pommel as is found on karambits the world over. The longer handle with the ring on the end provides the user with options that aren’t available with the original version (just remember the trade-off is that the new version is slightly more difficult to conceal).
