Description
CS58SQ: 58SQ Andrew Demko AD-15
Cold Steel
 
The AD-15 might be the most comfortable, user-friendly, sub-4-inch tactical folder Cold Steel has ever made! Modeled after Andrew Demko's patented original of the same name, it offers ambidextrous operation and great peace of mind. The saber ground spear point blade comes with a false edge and includes jimping on the spine to assure great piercing ability and edge control when precision cutting is required. The AD-15's unique hybrid handle is what distinguishes it the most; because it features Andrew’s famous Scorpion Lock. You see, the bottom portion of the handle has 3D-machined G10 scales mated to steel liners, while the upper portion of the handle, called the "yoke" is crafted from a 3D-machined 6061 aluminum billet that includes an integral back spacer which conceals a strong compression spring. To open the knife, simply engage the thumb stud and watch the yoke rise up until it falls snugly into a deep notch cut in the blade's tang. Held securely by constant pressure from the spring and, supported by the strength of one's grip, the Scorpion Lock is virtually immune from failure!

Cold Steel AD15: not so great
Bought on KnifeCenter. 2 things about this knife: for once it is nowhere near as user friendly as Cold Steel claims. It is very awkward to open as the hand tends to put pressure on the yoke which in the end bruises your thumb and the closing has to be done with two hands if you don't want to risk cutting yourself. The scorpion lock is innovative but I so much prefer the triad. Second the execution is not that good for a knife that price range. No titanium like the 4 max... I have ZT Kizer Spyderco... The grinding of the blade for example...to say the least. Disappointed to sum up... KnifeCenter has nothing to do with it. Cold Steel does.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Handle Material
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, None
very sharp blade, good design but fail to thumb open
Cons:Feel like the "yoke" is dragging the blade while opening, not as easy/smooth as i seen on youtube. I've tried to thumb open it but it stuck in the middle and got myself cut on the thumb. I have to use both hand to open it.Pros:The clip is tight, but the G10 next to the clip need to be sand so it won't rip your cotton pants. Very cool design, everything feels great except that problem i mentioned above.

Outstanding tool
I'm certain that numerous heartfelt reviews will flood this space soon so I'll focus on just a few details. Firstly, big thanks to CS for making an incredibly affordable production model of one of the most revolutionary knives of the last several years. After viewing a recent video of Demko comparing the custom and production models side-by-side, it's safe to say they are practically identical aside from the use of titanium on the original. Regarding the fit & finish: utterly superb. By far the highest quality control of any CS I've ever owned and at least equal to a ZT. The only criticism I have is the extreme coarseness of the scales: virtually equivalent to alligator hide wrapped in sandpaper. The grip is exceptional but I plan on at least removing the clip and lightly sanding that area. A monolithic knife in the hand and pocket in no way meant to be a "gentleman's folder".
