Andrew Demko Custom AD15 MG Folding Knife 3.75" CPM-S35VN Machine Ground Blade, Textured Titanium Handles
ADKAD15TEXTI: Custom AD15 MG Folding Knife, Textured Titanium
Demko Custom Knives
The AD15 is the next evolution in knifemaking design from Andrew Demko. Andrew is the creator of the Tri-Ad lock which has been a cornerstone in Cold Steel's folding knives for years. This self-adjusting lockback mechanism features a stop pin which re-distributes the load of vertical positive and negative pressures on the lock. The stop pin receives all positive pressure (pressure on the cutting edge) and transfers it into the handle frame and liners where it can be more effectively absorbed. The Scorpion lock is a similar patent pending design where the lock casing forms part of the handle which makes unlocking the Scorpion quicker and more intuitive. It also affords comparable lock strength to the Tri-Ad design which sets the standard around the entire industry and the Scorpion also includes a sliding lock to turn this knife into a de-facto fixed blade.
The AD15 MG is a robust knife built to handle every task. The machine ground drop point blade has a sharp, reinforced tip, finger choil, and excellent thumb ramp jimping. The Scorpion lock requires little manipulation in your hand to disengage, just lift the titanium piece near the stop pin on the blade and swing it closed. The ergonomic handle has a titanium upper frame with titanium backspacer, 0.05" thick titanium liner lower frame, and highly textured titanium scales. The titanium spring pocket clip is reversible for tip-up right or left-hand carry and the dual thumb studs make this knife completely ambidextrous. It's a wonderful utility/tactical design that is strong enough to handle hard use and abuse and was handmade in the USA.

The lockback system has been used for many decades. It can usually be found on the knife spine and it provides a strong lockup that will wear well.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
Custom knives are hand made in shops around the world. These will typically be extremely high quality and one of a kind pieces meticulously built by the craftsman.
