The Karambit R is a One Handed Blade. It is unlocked by rolling a LEGENDARY while opening a case.


The Karambit is a small curved knife that was originally from Southeast Asia. This kind of claw-like knife is called "Karambiak" or "Kurambik" in the native Indonesian language and Malay. It is called "Karambit" in the Philippines, which is known in most of the Western countries. In a traditional grip, the knife is held with the index finger in the ring and the point of the blade facing outwards. In a hammer grip, the knife is held with the pinky finger in the ring and the point of the blade facing outwards.[1]


The in-game model has a white curved blade and a ring on the bottom of the dark blue grip.
