5.11 Double Duty Karambit Folding Knife Review

720HD

Primary Blade Length: 3.7 inches
Primary Lock: Lockback
Secondary Blade Length: 1.4 inches
Secondary Lock: Liner lock
Steel: AUS-8
Handle Scales: FRN
Weight: 5.6 ounces
Price: $70

This is a medium-large tactical folder with a secondary, curved blade in the pommel. The lack of curve to the handle really does not put the blade forward enough, compared to most karambits. However, I do think the secondary curving blade is useful as a “utility cutting hook,” that could be used for many different non-combat tasks. The hook could also be used for ripping draw cuts in the non-traditional tip-up grip. Overall, I think the design is fairly useful, but that the price should be brought down a bit.

I don’t name the knife, the company does.

The Bedbug says:

Well that knife is just silly looking xD but I must admit, its pretty clever…but all in all, great review (no surprise there :P) lol!

Cazmeus says:

i like this karambit, because it’s very true to a traditional karambit. a karambit was meant to be a small, very small blade. so that attackers couldnt see that you even had a weapon.

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

It’s a little thin, I don’t think it would break tho.

Vagabond 1983 says:

Thanks Israel for the thorough review. I wanted to ask you about your thoughts on the Quartermaster karambit line.. And which one do you prefer over the other?

Tiger-frosch says:

This thing is actually very attractive to me in a weird kind of way.

KBar666 says:

Ehh, this one is a pass for me.

Thank you for showing me that detent.
No spaining is no fun for a karambit in my opinion. Obviously then didn’t really design it carefully to be used as a real karambit, but I really like the idea of combining a “normal” folding knife with a folding karambit. I hope they could fix the design by making the handle more curved and adding a locking safety for spaining games.

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

Thanks for watching, buddy!

Faizal Avro-Avava says:

tell them plz dont use that phrase,,,annoyying

BurnTheMoon says:

Jesus fucking christ you can cut the world in half if you drop that lol

Average Joe says:

I imagine it would be good for the “hospital” trick. You know, the one where you try to spin it and cut your hand so badly you need to go to the hospital.

LIVEFREE says:

JUST SEEMS A LILL GIMMICKY…. BUT DIFFERENT…. THANKS FOR THE VIDS SI!
HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS!

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

Thanks, buddy! :]

Aranyik says:

Do you have, or can you do a video explaining the difference between a Super Kerambit Vs. Regular Kerambit, I got a lengthy explanation in Thai, but a little too much foreign Jargon for me.

Cody says:

sorry but that’s not a karambit…good video though.

CHOSEN7X7 says:

Very interesting blade, I didn’t know 5.11 made the double blade folder. Thanks

alberto gorin says:

and the end allmost video stoped.

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

Congrats lol

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

Cool, glad you like them!

gadgetstalker2 says:

I was also interested in getting this when I saw it in Blade magazine and at Knifeworks but it seemed impractical. I prefer to just have 2 knives on me, a reg blade and a full sized folding karambit.

bladeimm says:

Yes, I sense a fair and consistent treatment of this and all products to help guide your subscribers. Disappointed it’s not the “Crowd Pleaser” I had hoped for but I’d rather have the truth than buy a fantasy. Thanks again.

dtester says:

Think it’s feasible to use it with both blades deployed in combat?

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

Probably the Cold Steel Steel Tiger.

LACADIO says:

Can the fit around your whole index finger?

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

because it has a ring

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

It could be done, yes. But it would take a lot of practice to be able to use both blades to their full potential.

Owl says:

I liked this review because it wasn’t just fact-listing. Good video

Ni Mi says:

the ring doesn’t qualify it tobe a karambit, ring or no ring, it must have a claw shaped blade

Mason Lusk says:

i got a black ops 3

Kaii G'sta says:

How can u call this a karambit

WeAllJuggleKnives says:

I’m sowwy :[ It’s like it’s a Gerber lol.

Andris Kompelien says:

Btw, would be fun to see your most used edc knifes. I usually carry a Benchmade 707 or a Victorinox solo 🙂

crypter27 says:
