The Caswell "Morphing Karambit Version 2 (MKV2)" is a highly robust, innovative tool that offers novel functionality and safety benefits:
Operator safety is enhanced because the blade cannot close across the fingers even in the event of lock failure.
Also, the blade may be seamlessly deployed from retention without dramatically altering grip on the tool. This increases the Morphing Karambit's versatility as both an impact and bladed tool by providing means for more instinctual, efficient emergency deployment.
