Now, in collaboration with Doug Marcaida, Max Venom has bent the rules once again! The DMaX II is the answer to a much requested question, “can I purchase the DMaX separately from the trainer?”

Why have so many people asked for the DMaX Karambit sold separately? Often because they wish they could own Doug Marcaida’s world renown DMaX at a lower price. So we asked ourselves whether we could do better than simply sell the knife separately. Whether we could achieve a more competitive price point still. We examined our cost model and came to the conclusion that we could.

When our customers ask, Max Venom answers!


What makes the DMaX II so cost competitive? We start by transitioning from S35VN to Nitro-V steel. We swapped our formula from a double sided grind to a razor sharp single side chisel grind, exchanged the original DMaX coating for a laser mark and ditched the trainer.

What you get in the DMaX II is everything you’ve come to expect in a purpose built knife by the Max Venom Product Group. Raw power, brilliant ergonomics, in a envelope that bends or breaks all the rules with grace, style and rugged durability.

The DMaX II will tackle both your everyday utility needs will providing you with a highly potent low profile self-defense tool.

The DMaX II ships complete with a hand fitted Kydex sheath and a neck appropriate length of paracord.

As always, the DMaX II is PROUDLY 100% made in the USA, by AMERICANS!

    On me 70% of the time I am out. I did make some adjustments to neck attachment so that it will “Break Off” in event of a it getting caught up on something.
