The new push dagger and trainer are phenomenal. The fit and finish is exacting, the size and ergonomics fill my hand perfectly, good weight without feeling overly bulky. I may do some testing on a pork loin at some point just to get a feel for how the blade pierces meat, but all my inspection and initial manipulations are telling me the pair are as excellent as the original Karambit-Pikal blade. I’ll have to experiment some with various carry/attachment methods on the sheaths to see how best to schlep it, but absolutely overjoyed with how it turned out so far!
