I was asked to make a modern version of a kama, a traditional Filipino and Japanese farming implement similar to a sickle originally used for reaping crops:

I wanted to create an optimized version of it that would be easy very fast and easy to carry in an urban environment.

After some sketching a couple of wood models were made in order to check the ergonomics and the correct angles of all the cutting edges. This is the final result:

 The Bladetricks Sick Kama is a modern version of this tool turned into a mighty weapon. Thanks to its compact design the Sick kama can easily be carried as a tactical EDC blade.

This last batch is made of 4340 alloy, a very high strength steel sought after for its toughness and used for parts that will be highly stressed in applications requiring the highest tensile/yield strength (Military aircraft, Heavy Duty crankshafts and any other highly stessed parts). 4340 alloy steel is probably the toughest steel availble and we love to work with it in our workshop in order to make the toughest and most rugged knives and blades available at a rasonable price.
