Krudo’s father is the inspiration for this design as well as the name of MANIKOMIO. His father, Salvadore, Sal for short, had an endearing nickname that only his closest friends were allowed to call him; “Manikomio”. Sal had a great sense of humor, was highly energetic, willing to take on a friendly dare, was extremely brave and respected in his circles. Krudo’s father still influences his work and his life

MANIKOMIO Fixed Blade is the first fixed blade of this size that Louis Krudo has added to his line up in at least 4 years. Since the first fixed blades, RAW, MMF and HAIKU, Krudo has placed nearly all of his designing attention on folders. When he was asked to design a field knife, MANIKOMIO was conceived. You will see the strong resemblance to Krudo’s DRASTIK Folder as the design of the gladius sword inspired blade.

The name MANIKOMIO refers to an insane asylum. This blade is insanely sleek and, with it’s all black elements, insanely stealth. There is a hint of red accentuating the knife handle that is the signature KRUDO Knives red.  This double edge blade sports bilateral serrations with a center line groove.

Krudo designed this knife with a slight radius to the scales, double-sided guard and longer than average handle length. The black, Kydex sheath is attached to a black, nylon belt system which can be easily removed and replaced with the carry system of your choice. Use this knife in the field, camping, hunting and any outdoor activities where you need a serious blade. MANIKOMIO is a dependable blade, all business, yet stylish.
