Description: Demko Knives founder, Andrew Demko, first began forging chisels in 1988, when he was in the seventh grade. He instantly realized this was his passion and began forging knives immediately. Like so many bladesmiths, Andrew began his journey from his garage, hammering out blade shapes and sharpening them on a small but manageable grinder. While pursuing his dream, Andrew's passion for engineering and attention to detail was noticed by Cold Steel. With Cold Steel, Andrew went on to engineer some of the most innovative, strongest locking mechanisms in the industry: the legendary Tri-Ad Lock, the Scorpion Lock, and most recently, a one-handed operator's dream, the Shark-Lock. Since the sale of Cold Steel, Andrew has grown his business to include his brother John Demko. John brings expertise to custom manufacturing, sales and fabrication. Both custom knives and production knives are produced under the Demko Knives brand.
The AD20.5 Demko Shark Cub (AD20.5SC) was designed to answer the call for a smaller, more compact folding knife from Demko Knives. This is a smaller knife with no compromise in strength and durability.
The blade can be easily deployed using the blade cutout and rotates on ball bearings for smooth action. Pull back on the Shark-Lock and the blade effortlessly drops closed.
The shark foot blade is stonewash finished CPM-20CV stainless steel. CPM-20CV is a martensitic stainless steel with a high volume of vanadium carbides for exceptionally good wear resistance. CPM-20CV contains the highest amount of chromium of any high vanadium stainless steel currently available. This results in superior corrosion resistance while maintaining a high wear resistance. This composition of this steel is most similar to Bohler M390. The blade is flat ground and razor sharp. Both the spine and shark lock are jimped for a positive thumb purchase.
The handle is black anodized aluminum set on barrel spacers, keeping the knife strong yet extremely light. Torx construction is used throughout. A reversible, deep carry pocket clip makes this knife easy to keep close at hand.
Made in Taiwan.
