About Real CS Karambit Knives
Originally from South-East Asia around the 14th century, the Karambit was used as a tool and as a weapon ! This polyvalent blade became the emblem of South-East Asia Martials Arts such as the Pencak Silat. Traditionally and as told in the legends, the Karambit shape would have been made from the shape of a Tiger claw, as it is the symbolic animal of Malaysia. Due to that ergonomic shape, you will have different options to hold your Karambit. The most common one is by putting your index on the hole and the rest of your hand on the handle, resulting in a comfortable hold allowing smooth movements. Another option is putting your pinky in the hole, and then the rest of your hand on the handle, giving you a “reverse” hold.
Greatly modernized and popularized since the seventies by martials arts movies, more recently by action ones. The Karambit made its way as a reliable blade and tool, and also as a very popular option in some video games, the most famous being, you named it, Counter Strike : Global Offensive !
As one of the very first knife skins that came out with CS:GO, the Karambit quickly became one of the most popular in the game, with various pros using it to slash through their opponents in big stages like NBK in the ESL One Cologne 2015 Final, or more recently by the Heroic in-game leader Cadian. The Karambit Blue gem is also known as one of the most expensive skins with some offers for the famous 387 pattern approaching the million dollar value !
