FOX Serves up Fresh Karambits for 2023

Fox Cutlery leaned into the tactical side of things recently, showing off a family of new knives from CQC instructor Jared Wihongi at IWA. These new Wihongi models include two fixed blade and two folder designs.


The MOA’s wild blade is definitely a head turner. At 2.95 inches long, it’s not huge, but the profile looks like it will punch above its size class: a modified American tanto with a recurve between the primary and secondary edges, this is an unabashedly tactical piece of work. The blade steel is N690Co, a tried and true workhorse in the European stainless steel catalog. An arcing handle complements the dramatic curves of the blade, with black G-10 scales and a steel finger ring at the back end, as expected.

The MOA is also releasing in a folding version [see featured image]. This folder has a blade length of 2.76 inches which, while smaller, has the same recurve tanto shape, and is also made from N690Co. It also has a liner lock, reversible pocket clip, and a tungsten carbide glass breaker. The MOA folder weighs 4.3 oz.


The TOA fixed blade comes with the same arcing, finger ring’d handle as the MOAs, but with a simplified wharncliffe blade shape. Canted upwards from the knife’s center line, this wharnie’s tip is raised pretty high, so it exudes a similar tactical/hard use air as the MOA fixed blade. Blade still is once again N690Co and, like the MOA, the TOA comes with a kydex sheath.


Finally we have the KEA, second folding knife in this clutch of Wihongi collabs. It has a 2.76-inch modified sheepsfoot blade profile that’s definitely the best-suited to regular EDC out of any of these knives (it is also made from N690Co, by the way). The KEA is the only knife to forgo the karambit ergonomics, with a straightforward handle design with just one finger groove, providing easy access to its liner lock.
