Description
ACU1707POE: Shark ATZ-1707P-OE - Orange G10
ArtisanCutlery
 
The ArtisanCutlery Shark is a sleek and lightweight full-size flipper that is great for everyday carry. While on the larger side, its slender handle and blade shape allow it to fit comfortably in the pocket. The blade is 3.94" and crafted from D2 tool steel. This air-hardened, semi-stainless tool steel is more corrosion resistant than other high carbon steels due to its high chromium content and offers a good mix of toughness, wear resistance, and edge holding ability. The handles are made from orange textured G10 over stainless steel liners and include a stainless steel pocket clip set up for right or left-hand tip-up carry.

Can't believe nobody has reviewed this yet!!
I have many knives from many different companies with Benchmade, Spyderco, ZT, SOG, Boker, Cold Steel, and Ontario among the mix. Most of these are in the $100-$350 range but I have many, especially my older knives, in the $10 to $50 range. I say this in order to validate my claim:This Shark is no $52 knife! Get yourself one before someone comes to their senses!It opens as well as any ZT flipper I have and is as well made as most Spydercos (sprint runs the exception). The blade is better centered than most Benchmades and the edge bevel seems to be well balanced from side to side. (I have not had to sharpen it yet so I can't attest to the actual bevels on the edge).Fit and finish are dam good but not perfect. The edges of the scales are beveled but perhaps a bit more would give it a better feel in the hand.The "almost" deep carry pocket clip fails to work well as the screws are round head and catch the hem of the pocket preventing the knife from seating correctly. It does, however, slide in and out of a pocket easily and hold firmly.The only true gripe I have is that the flipper tab is smooth and rounded. This makes it a bit difficult to flip it out without my finger slipping off the tab. I have gotten used to this knife needing more force but I should not have had to. I will take a Dremel Tool and cut some groves in it to facilitate ease of opening one of these days.Be advised, this is a Bad Boy! Flicking this guy out will back people up!! Shark is a good name for it!
