The Cold Steel Tiger Claw represents the future of folding Karambit design!

Created by celebrated custom-knife maker Andrew Demko, this exciting multi-functional folder is simply overflowing with design innovations!

The blade was designed following Andrew Demko's extensive testing and experimentation as a journeyman electrician and engineer. When making his own multi-purpose handmade work knives, he made his own karambit/hawkbill hybrid blade that could cut rope, cable, wire and anything else his vocation threw in his path.

This knife served him well through years of hard use, and, when tasked by Cold Steel to develop his own take on a folding Karambit, this blade shape immediately came to mind.

Replicating Andrew's original blade design but in premium XHP steel, the Tiger Claw offers the tactical cutting and slashing performance of the Filipino and Indonesian fighting karambit with the utility and function of a working man's hawkbill.

With the patented Demko thumb-plate, the Tiger Claw offers a fully ambidextrous fast draw from the pocket either in a saber grip or a traditional blade-down karambit grip, deploying the blade with lightning fast ease!

Made with his signature minimalist style, Demko's Tiger Claw features a slim line CNC machined US G10 handle, a matte black aluminum ring and perhaps most excitingly of all, the all new locking system! The uniquely modified Tri-Ad locking system features all of the strength, reliability and performance of the world famous Tri-Ad lock, but with fully ambidextrous one-handed forward release opening - making this knife a breeze to open and close with one hand regardless of how you choose to carry or deploy it!

Pros: Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Material
Cons: None
Great Knife and buying experience.
Once again the new XHP cold steels impress. Fantastic factory edge.The karambit is larger in hand than I assumed from the images but thats a good thing.Tri-Ad lock is not as 'sticky' as the first runs. They are just getting it right.As for Knife Center I had the product shipped to Australia and it arrived on time perfectly packaged.Great value for a mid-high end powder steel.

Cons: Ease of Opening, None
not a karambit but a good knife
The knife has good feel to it but deploying it via the ring on knife not possible.The handle is too long, with that said once you alter your approach to using it the it become much nicer!
