Thursday, December 2, 2010


Every instructor out there has a unique experience in their martial arts journey, especially if they decided to incorporate teachings from more than one style. So you might have a Kenpo Karate black belt who added punches from Boxing, low kicks from Muay Thai, stick and knife from Escrima and some trapping techniques from Wing Chun. So each instructor can come up with their own unique combination of martial arts bits and pieces.

I am no exception. But please understand that I didn't just put stuff together based on whatever I happened to learn, K4S has a core. That core is MMA. Whether it's stick fighting, knife combat, or empty hand the core is the sport of MMA. The reason is because knife combat, Chi levels and many other things found in martial arts cannot be measured. So to have a realistic base we need to have a base that can be measured. My knife skills can only be speculated, but my Boxing, Judo, Wrestling skills can be compared. What kind of level does a pro knife fighter train at? We don't know, but we do know how pro Boxers trains at.

K4S brand original knife design by Wampire

When closed this knife is an Impact Kerambit Tool ideal for self-defense.

This knife is based from the 1918 trench knife, which is a dagger with a skull crusher and brass knuckles. The trench knife is totally offensive made for combat. I basically thought to myself, if I made everything as legal as possible what would the knife look like?
Smaller folding knife instead of a large fixed knife, Tanto blade instead of dagger, Impact Kerambit instead of brass knuckles, pointy areas instead of a skull crusher.
So instead of blood & guts combat, this is designed for protection in a modern urban setting.

I know what your thinking, a Kerambit should have a curved hawk's bill blade.
The handle is totally straight because a straight handle provides the most number of grip options, that's important to me because I believe that in a crisis situation sometimes you just have to grab the knife and use it in whatever grip you end up with and pray that your knife works well that way.
The tanto shaped blade was chosen over the hawk's bill blade because it has a stronger tip and hey it can be used to pierce armor. But seriously the tanto is just a good blade shape for many types of fighting tactics.
The point is closer to the spine of the blade so you can even do a backhand attack with the spine.

The Karambit ring hole can be used as a hex wrench, imo the hex hole provides more control than a circle hole when spinning the knife.

A "three in one" multi-tool.
1) Folding Knife
2) Impact Kerambit
3) Hex Wrench

-Tanto shaped blade
-Karambit ring
-Lock back
-No pins, all screws, taking apart friendly
-Thorn for ambidextrous thumb opening
-Ricasso claw (aggressive finger guard)
-Lanyard hole and secondary lanyard hole
-Aggressive jimping on spine of blade
-Hex wrench
-Glass breaker on head of handle
-Glass breaker on the Karambit ring
-Chisel grind
-Pocket clip (not shown)
-Self-defense pocket stick with 3 points of striking
-Impact Karambit tool when closed

1) In the closed position this knife is an impact Karambit tool that is basically a pocket stick on steroids.
2) In the open position this knife is very versatile in grip and cutting choirs suitable for EDC and self-defense.

Tanto + Kerambit = Good for EDC & self-defense

K4S KNIFE T-shirts!

click here to purchase from CafePress

Knife T-shirts
The following are the graphics for my knife t-shirts.
The basic concept was to design a knife t-shirt, because I love knives and I just haven't seen a whole lot of knife tees for some reason. I also wanted the knife to be a tactical knife rather than the commonly used fantasy knife.

Both tee shirts present a type of Kerambit knife which is widely popular in martial arts circles. The knife is centered on the tee like a neck tie that can look good even when some kind of jacket is worn.

Valmont Tee is a Vampire inspired t-shirt.
Featuring a tribal rose background,
Inside the handle ring is an amethyst gem like color.

Platinum Tee is a hip hop bling-bling style shirt.
The Kerambit word is presented across the shirt in a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu kimono gi style.
The platinum color knife features a sapphire like sparkle inside the handle ring.
