Traditionally, the karambit's design was a fixed blade with the blade shape based on a tiger's claw. Historically, the karambit was widely used as a utility blade for everyday routine chores in ancient Southeast Asia.

Early versions (11th-14th century designs) of the Filipino karambit and Indonesian karambit may or may not have possessed a safety ring, which is also known as a retention ring. All modern karambit designs feature the ring and allows the user to insert a finger through the ring.The safety ring, located at the base, is designed to prevent or make it extremely difficult to disarm, and also allows for increased weapon retention..The radically curved blade is designed for hooking, tearing, ripping, slicing and maximum efficiency with minimal effort. .
