Demko AD-20.5 Shark Lock Shark Foot Black Grivory Handle Stonewash Blade

The AD-20.5 from Demko is an affordable production version of the super popular MG AD-20. This scaled down version is slim, lightweight and features the Shark Lock. The Shark Lock mechanism is situated along the spine of the knife and is operated via the ramp-like fin. These are a hit!

This model features black grivory handle scales. Stonewash finished AUS10A stainless steel Shark Foot sheepsfoot style blade. Satin finished hardware and a stonewashed pocket clip. Brand new in box with pouch, polishing cloth, and spare pocket clip.

    Extremely user-friendly with a great design

    The Shark Lock is the main selling point of this knife so I'll address that first: Basically it's great. This is probably the most user-friendly locking mechanism that I've handled, slightly edging out the AXIS/ABLE Lock in ease of deployment. The action seemed poor out of the box, but this was mostly due to user error. The "fin" that disengages the lock has to be pulled back and slightly upward to loose the blade, which can then swing freely. I've been accustomed to putting excess pressure on locking mechanisms, so I wasn't fully lifting the "fin" when I tried to close the knife. More deliberate attention solved that issue and the action ran beautifully - though it's definitely the type that benefits hugely from gravity if pointed towards the ground. The thumb studs are nice and big, with plenty of room between the studs and the handle to flick the blade out easily. I don't love the cutout in the blade, which I guess is intended to be an additional deployment option. Maybe I just don't have the right hands, but I can't really do anything with it. So the hole is just sort of strange looking without being functional. Oh well. Not a big deal. - The handle material is well textured for grip and seems quite durable. I think I prefer it to micarta The AUS10A steel... Honestly it doesn't bother me. If you're purchasing this knife, It's likely because you want to experience the Shark Lock and an Andrew Demko design. It doesn't disappoint in that regard, and is impressive enough to overcome a poor choice of steel for the price. AUS10A is perfectly fine for most uses anyway. Also, American Edge was extremely quick with shipping and handling. There was no trouble at all. I'll definitely be buying from them again.
