    1. Solid self defense knife

      Very solid knife and a really good self defense tool. When done properly, the deployment of the knife is extremely quick and efficient. If you buy this knife for self defense I would recommend train/practice deploying it. The last thing you want is to be caught in a situation and not know how to properly deploy it.
      Overall, this is a damn good knife!

    4. Pocket Fillet Knife

      I originally wanted the Fox 599 but was unable to locate one at a decent price. Then I found this site and glad I did. They also did not offer the 599, so I began looking at the 479, and made the purchase. This knife is like a loaded weapon in your pocket that NEVER runs out of ammo. It comes to you DANGEROUSLY SHARP, so be careful. The fit, finish and lock-up and spot on perfection. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT try training or flipping with this knife, as you may end up at the local ER. I used 3M Blue Painters Tape and taped the edge up completely. This allowed me to train with the knife without having to spend more $$$ on a blunt trainer. It's great b/c it's the actual knife you will carry. All in all, I am VERY pleased with this Fox 479 Karambit. If you purchase this 479 be advised that the grip is a little large, but I actually prefer it this way. I'm afraid the 599 would have been too small for my mountain man hands. on
