Description
 
The Talon karambit's have “Doug Marcaida” written all over them (metaphorically). 5.11 says the blades draw their design from Marcaida’s practice of Filipino Martial Arts of Kali. The duo based the blades on “fast and flowing movements, like that of an Eagle.”
That might sounds like a hokey marketing line, but it’s actually not. Marcaida and 5.11 actually designed the knives to mimic a retractable Eagle’s talon, which allows for a more angled blade for thrusting and slashing. However, it is still slightly curved enough so it does not lose the ability to hook and control in its use. Again, a lot of thought went into the knives.
Rounding out the design is the skeletonized handle with clear scales. Why clear? To blend in with the clothing.
