    I'm searching high and low for a device called a Karabit (I think that's what it's called). I might not be in the right forum since it's not a knife, but it's closer to a knife than a firearm. It's sorta shaped like a 'C' with a loop at one end for your index finger and the other end curls around under your fist and pokes out the front a little. There are no sharp points, but a nice and narrow blunt edge for cracking collarbones and generally making the Bad Guys want to leave you alone.
    Anyone know what I'm looking for?
    Anyone know where to find one?
    Thanx.

    HI, the correct spelling is kerambit. Just correcting you so you do a search online for one. There are many different styles/models available. Prices vary from 25.00 to 500.00. Just do a search.

    Ernie Emerson spells the one he makes "Karambit." But considering it's an adaptation of a southeast asian word, who knows what the "correct" spelling is. Try all the permutations when you search.

    I found 'em. That's exactly what I'm looking for, and $8 is a good price.
    Thanx again.
