Layaway Information

Layaway Policies

We offer a layaway plan on select products so you may pay for your order over a period of 60 days. Products that are eligible for layaway will show "Layaway Available: Yes" on the product page.

Here's how it works:

The total amount of the order excluding shipping, tax, or fees is divided into three (3) equal payments. The first payment is due with the order, the second payment is due 30 days later, and the final payment is due 60 days after the order.

There is a $15 non-refundable fee for layaway orders. This fee is added to the first payment along with the shipping and any tax. The first payment is made when the order is placed.

Example: Your order total is $300 plus $12.75 shipping and handling. If you select the layaway option, your payments would be:

  • $127.75 (1/3 of purchase = $100 + $15 layaway fee + $12.75 shipping)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)

If your initial payment is made by credit card, we will automatically process the 2nd and 3rd payments at the appropriate time using the same credit card information. You will be reminded via email that a payment will be charged. If you need to change this for any reason, please contact us.

For payments made other than credit card, payment must be received within seven (7) days of the due date or the order is subject to cancellation. You will receive a reminder via email that a payment is due.

If you wish to complete payment early and have your order shipped, you may contact us at any time during the 60 day period. There is no penalty for prepayment.

Additional products may be added to a layaway order without penalty. A new payment schedule will be calculated based on when additional products are added.

If you wish to complete payment early and have your order shipped, you may contact us at any time during the 60 day period. There is no penalty for early payment.

Cancellations of layaway orders are subject to a restocking/processing fee of 10% of the order total (not including tax and shipping costs). This restocking fee is in addition to the $15 non-refundable layaway fee.

Overview

The Karambit was born as a utility knife carried by villagers in the Indonesian archipelago around the turn of the 11th century. It was originally a true EDC ( Every Day Carry ) knife used for a variety of tasks like farming and field work but very quickly proved it's usefulness as an incredibly effective self-defense weapon. The more it became associated with the Indonesian martial arts form of Pencak Silat and Filipino Kali, the more it took the shape of the direct translation of its name, the “tiger’s claw”. The wound channels and damage this tool can create in soft tissues also bear a striking similarity to the horrific mauling attacks the tigers of that area were known for (the only animals in the world known to actively hunt humans). Early versions of the karambit were some of the first true "NPE" knives because even common farmers could carry one during a time and socioeconomic system in which the working class were not generally allowed to carry weapons. The karambit was even used by warriors as a last ditch back-up blade after the sword and spear were no longer a viable option. It's still one of the most effective self-defense tools for its size today, and for modern operators it serves a very similar purpose.

   When Greg decided to start producing and designing edged weapons many years ago now, the Karambit was near the top of his list. The reason for this was trifold: His background and experience in Silat knife fighting techniques, the huge lack of “modernized” karambits currently available (inferior design/carry methods), and his desire to produce the most effective specifically defensive blade ever built. Pencak Silat Karambit fighting methods teach us that a Karambit can quickly and effectively be used to eliminate threats by disrupting blood supply, neural connections, organ structure, and soft or connective tissue. Many Karambits produced today very closely resemble the original design carried by villagers as a tool for daily farm use. This is unfortunate because these karambits fall far short of their high potential for use as a self-defense weapon... mainly because there was no real safe, discreet and/or effective way to carry them (before the invention of the Bone Karambit). In fact, most of the karambits produced in the US are relatively well made but still use designs for both blade and sheathes that haven’t changed in many centuries. These traditional Indonesian style karambits, while having a decent design for self-defense, are often large or bulky, overly flashy, and don’t come with a sheath that allows for comfortable or practical everyday carry. Worse still, Karambits from the east (China, Pakistan, Indonesia...) are usually the lowest quality of all in our modern day and age. They often feature cheap, inferior materials and poor workmanship.

   The Karambit has the potential to be the most effective defensive blade you could ever carry for several reasons... The signature curved slashing blade of our Karambit allows it to be small enough to remain potentially unseen, while providing the same stopping power of a much larger blade. Our Karambit is designed to be small enough to conceal and large enough to use as a fighting knife in defensive situations. When in use it's concealed mostly by the hand, with no excess steel or flair, leaving just the deadly claw protruding from the grip. A Karambit is meant to be nearly impossible to disarm. Our Karambit comes with the traditional finger ring that keeps it from slipping out of the hand while allowing the knife to be used at close and/or medium CQB fighting ranges simultaneously without changing the distance of the weapon hand from the body. This is allowed by the spinning double strike Karambit fighting technique, which also makes the Karambit the only blade that can cut twice with one strike. Effectively changing between close and medium ranges with little to no body movement. 

   The Bone Tactical Karambit has several other features that keeps it a step above the rest. Its ergonomics have been specifically molded to fit the hand in both full grip, and over-the-knuckles grip position. Precision jimping is integrally designed for both added grip and indexing by feel. Each Karambit ships in a modular kydex sheath that's as at home inside the waistband of your business suit as it is clipped onto one of our PC's in a combat zone. A revolutionary leather sheath that makes the unit luxurious, concealable, comfortable, and equally fast to access is also available for separate purchase (as are our IWB/OWB loop clips). Each leather sheath is completely hand made, with only the finest hand picked natural leathers, ambidextrous, and wearable both vertically or horizontally on the belt.

We also added a bottle opener to our Karambit (we were the first company to do so). We didn't just do this so you can whip out your Karambit and pop the top on your favorite bottled beverage among friends: The bottle opener on the back also serves to add traction for hooking and trapping movements when using the blade in line with modern knife fighting techniques. That's also why only one edge of the blade is sharpened, to be used in conjunction with the bottle opener for pulling/hooking/trapping limbs and joints when creating openings for follow up slashing. Apart from allowing for incredible martial arts flow, the single sharpened edge also makes it legal to carry in many more areas. Always check your local knife laws before carrying a blade.

   Every fully custom Karambit is a beautiful, hand-finished, collector quality piece that can be passed down through generations as an heirloom yet is still very capable of hard use. All Karambits are made from USA produced 3/16" thick steel. Due to the fact that our edged weapons and tools are completely custom, no two blades are the same. We are continually making minor improvements, as reports come back from the field via the Special Forces soldiers and OCONUS clandestine teams using our weapons in order to keep them the most effective fighting tools in the world. Therefore, your product will differ slightly from the pictures shown here.
