Demko Knives AD20.5 Tom Krein Regrind Shark Foot D2 Black DLC Blade Shark Lock w/ Gray Textured Grivory Handles
The All New Ad20.5 by Demko Knives features the all new Shark Lock™. The Shark Lock mechanism is situated on the spine of the knife and operated with a ramp-like ‘fin.’
 
The Shark Lock™ mechanism designed and engineered by Andrew Demko has finally arrived!

With easy one-handed opening and closing, smooth cage bearings, and a Grivory handle and steel liners, this knife is up to the task!

The Shark Lock mechanism is situated on the spine of the knife and operated with a ramp-like ‘fin.’ Opening the blade makes the spring-driven lock arm move up and then into a notch in the tang, situating it beneath a lock pin. This range of movement is noteworthy. It’s unique in that the locking mechanism moves forward and back while also moving up and down. This allows for a greater sized blade tang, making better mechanical advantage in a specific area. And because the drive spring that moves the locking element up into the locked position is contained within the locking arm itself, it won’t be subject to dirt and grime. The Shark is very comparable to most Tri-Ad locks for its size and weight. The AD-20.5 has been tested to 875 inch pounds of torque, this is a very impressive number for a 3.5 oz. knife.

This one has been super-charged by the Krein regrind. For years now, Tom Krein has been building a name in the knife community with his well-regarded regrinds. These grinds give you thinner blade geometry for ultimate slicing ability - far better than from the factory.
 
The OEM warranty is void on this product due to the regrind.
