My girlfriend’s brother has been jealous of a real karambit I forged to her….. Unfortatunately hes only 10 but because Christmas is coming and his birthday os December 20th I decided to make him a wood karambit. I used pine which wasnt the best choice but for now it holds.

That turned out real nice. I had to find out what it was. Here is what Wikipedia says :Southeast Asian curved knife resembling a claw.

Cheers, Jim

Very nicely made.

Even a pine one could do some real damage from the looks of it.

This should go over well when he takes it to school for “show and tell”

A little too young to receive this in my opinion….......good luck.

I doubt they have all the BS in Portugal…

I’ve carried a pocket knife since about 2nd grade… is that too young? I never threatened anyone with it either.
I carried my target rifle to school on the bus and put it in my locker for rifle club in high school. Never had a moment’s trouble.

It’s not the rifle or the knife that’s the problem.

Congrats on your DT3. I made one for my son a couple of years ago out of hickory and added some paint to try and make it look real by adding handles/grips. Even though it’s wood, it’s dangerous so I made a display box for him to hang it on his wall.

Not into the martial arts but that is unusual.
Times have changed and not for the better. I did a fishing demo for a daycare. I asked about doing one for archery but I was told the state doesn’t allow weapons in schools. North Carolina schools can’t even have dummy firearms for Hunter Education class. Instructors use a one inch dowel with one end painted orange.

Have your say...
