DIY training blade for Fox mod.478 folding karambit

after the video review of the Fox Knives model 478 folding karambit, that I really liked, I decided to make a non-sharp and non-pointed training blade to avoid hurting myself! so I took an old 3mm thick lawnmower blade, shaped it appropriately and this is the result. the holes compensate the lack of bevels. in this way the two blades, original and training, have the same weight and return the same feelings. I also made the "Emerson wave" a little more aggressive in order to obtain an even easier deployment of the blade when extracting the knife out of my pocket.

let me know what you think!
