Dr. "You remember the first knife I bought from you around Y2k. Still have it and the other 3 you made me. The custom design will go to my grave. Just wanted to say, you have been the premier kerambit maker in the world as far as I can see. You should advertise and spread your name more. I know you don't like too much attention but you deserve it. These other makers do nice work, but honestly it's all copying master Rich haha"
R.R. - "Taking this beauty to work in the sandbox. Almost too pretty to use"
S. Marlon. "one of two custom knives I own. Since I own 99% production knives in my collection, the price was high for me and the wait was long but the end product was completely worth it. Destroys all my production kbits easily and carries great. Very impressed and your work insipires me to save for more customs especially yours. Thank you for the work you put into this piece. We'll be talking again soon after tax season"
Damon S. "Very happy with the knife. The only way I could possibly be happier is if it were free lol. Top notch work and will take daily carry status, replacing my waved production folder"
R. F. A. "Sick knife brother. The grinds are amazing and the handle sculpt is very comfortable. Fits like a glove"
Anton B. "Shockingly effective design and execution. Truly happy Rich, thanks"
J. - "The finest Karambit I own. A perfect addition to my Kit. 100% worth the wait. Semper Fidelis"
"Bro, this is the sickest knife I own! Fits my hand like a glove!, thanks for the hard work"
"I have more of your knives than anyone elses. You know I love your stuff, no one makes karambits like Derespina. The fit is always perfect. They've always served me well on duty and off"
"The best knife I've ever owned and my new favorite EDC"
"He loves it! I haven't seen him without his Brooklyn Bowie since his birthday. Thank you again"
"I took it out to the yard for a few test swipes and it exceeded my expectations, for a kerambit it that is. It swiped clean through n old can of pop I put some water in"(Model 3 Parong Karambit)
"After much delay, I was shocked at how perfect the knife was in my hand. The knife upon delivery was well worth the wait. Kudos to you Mr. Derespina for such a fine blade! After owning several custom and production Karambits I now have the best in my collection"
"Thanks for another great one Rich! My new Model 2 will carry nicely on duty together with my Derespina folder! I'll be sending more business your way! Guys in my outfit need good gear! Thanks buddy"
"This thing Rocks brother! totally worth the coin and the wait. Best custom I own and it will go into my Kit with me. Thanks for the Tee shirt too! love the Octopus, tasty.."
