Italy's Fox Knives have taken their classic folding karambit and released it as a fixed blade. With the same ergonomics as the original, the FX-598 is even stronger thanks to its full tang construction!
The FX-598 features premium N690 steel and a 2.36" hawkbill blade with a full-length swedge to enhance penetration and slicing efficiency. A small Spanish notch at the heel of the blade provides an advantage when it comes time to sharpen the steel.
Textured G10 handle scales have relief for hand comfort, but machined grooves and the signature karambit tail ring mean you won’t be slipping anytime soon. You can also thank the jimped thumb ramp and finger guard for added control.
A Kydex sheath is provided for ambidextrous carry with the included belt adapter. This keeps the FX-598 ready for when you need it the most.
The cobalt-alloyed N690 by Böhler (not to be confused with the lower-grade N695) is a very reliable upper middle-grade steel Fox uses for a wide variety of projects. The fine-grained N690, which ranks above 440C, offers convincing performance data in all areas. It is often sold as N690Co – the "Co" stands for cobalt and describes the exact same steel.
