CS80PSSK: Shanghai Shadow
Cold Steel

The signature ring on our Shanghai Shadow gives this blade an assortment of advantages. This simple device allows tremendous versatility in handling the knife. It provides a totally secure grip when the index finger is locked in place through the hole. It can be pivoted around the index finger for a quick change from a forward to a reverse grip. And it can be a means of extending your arm's reach by up to 4" when gripping the ring alone.

But as cool and useful as the ring is it's the broad leaf shaped blade and Polypropylene handle scales that ultimately make impressions. Made from one solid piece of 1055 Carbon steel, with a tough spring temper, the twin hollow ground edges of a the Shanghai Shadow make it superb cutting and thrusting weapon as well as a good throwing knife. It come fully sharpened and includes a secure-ex sheath.

Do not hold knives while checking emails!!!
Yes I know everyone is looking for light steel, but I'm a little guy and need slightly heavy blades. Got this to be a left handed supplement for dual wielding with Chaos trench dagger. Didn't know it was a "thrower" till later. The minute I saw the steel type and price - I jumped on it. It came with a Secure-ex sheath which will dull your blade as you sheath and un-sheath for a couple of friends. Replace with leather, or do like I do...oil it and hang it up where the cat can't reach it. Me and a friend were able to put a horrifying edge on this dagger. I tend to choke up - right on the hilt of the blade. The circle is just a pommel or a lanyard hole for conversion into Chinese throwing dagger. Hence the name Shanghai Shadow, which i'll admit sounds cliché - but perhaps I'm understating the "TERRIFYING EDGE" this thing gets. Used Smiths stone, and I use a course/fine diamond portable smith's for quick fixes. Do not forget this is in your hand! I don't think I've ever felt such a large/lightweight weapon that actually works. I was reading my email, and I reached for a milk-dud...all I did was touch the blade...Gush Gush Gush!! Please beware - and respect that 2" wide-leaf design. Little correction in stats...the blade is 6.5" and the length from hilt to pommel is 6.75." Great thrusting, decent hacking, and impeccable slicing. Will be wrapping with cord over handles for increased grip and weight. Sacrificing Stealth for strength.

Got this knife to test Cold Steels 1055 Carbon Steel. It's super resilient. I do mostly backyard cutting stuff (similar to, but not exactly like) the back yard cutters guild. One gallon water jugs, throwing targets, and I did the hammer fist through the cinder block thing the Cold Steel Video on the knife shows. Very solid. I really like the handle, as it is allen wrench screws, and easy to tighten or remove for maintenance, not that you will need to do that often, if ever, with this knife. It's got a nice weight to it, and I have large hands, and it still fits in my grip several different ways. This knife is a no-regret kind of deal. I never consider the quality of the sheath, or scabbard of a knife that comes with it when purchased, because I do my own leather work, and make my own stuff to my specs to get it the way I want it. That being said, this scabbard is very nice for the knife. It's a bit loud on the draw and re-sheathing, but generally noise isn't so much a factor... right? Decent quality, nothing special about the case. I like the velcro-button snap fixture on the main belt loop, easy to attach to a belt you are already wearing, or remove from a belt without dropping trow...

Bada** Knife for the Money
sturdy, full tang, good weight and decent size for my large hands. sheath is a perfect snug fit, but doesnt snag or hang up when pulling it out. not the sharpest edge from the factory but amazing quality for the money.
