Description
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.

A Spork Fighter
Nice design, but tries to be too, much; and ends up being not quite enough. It is like a Spork, or, a Scanoe: designed to do multiple tasks, but does nothing really well. If it is supposed to be a dagger, give it a better edge holding steel. If it is supposed to be a thrower, thicken up the point and edges. The SK5 tool steel of Cold Steel’s, Shanghai Warrior would have been a better choice for edge holding, in my opinion (still has good toughness). >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> The index finger rings seems like an afterthought on the Shadow; not like the integral, ergonomic handle designed index finger ring of TOPS Knive’s, excellent, C.U.T. 4.0 (available @ KnifeCenter.com). The Shadow’s finger ring is not comfortable, or ergonomic; and I’m definitely not holding the Shadow by the ring to get an extra 4” of reach. I’m of the same mind as, Renato, below, and have given the handle a wrap in black athletic tape (tennis racket tape sounds good, too). >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> For all my criticism, I really like these Cold Steel, Shanghai Series Knives (Warrior & Shadow). The index finger ring makes a great oversized pommel. Well balanced and agile in the hand. They could have put a bottle opener in the center of the ring, and it would have served me better. I even like the Secure-Ex sheath; quiet/secure (you can’t beat them for the price). I can’t deduct a star from Shanghai Shadow at this price point. This is a great budget priced tac tool (sharpen as needed). And, let’s face it: It just looks cool. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> P.S. Pick up a Hewlet-JewelStik Professional 1-2-3, 10” Diamond Sharpening Steel (part# HW123K), available @ KnifeCenter.com. As, Renato points out, below, “a couple of swipes with the ceramic stick,” or, in this case, on the diamond steel, and this soft, tough steel will be razor sharp, again. This professional butcher steel has perhaps, the most consecutive 5 star ratings (10 @ this writing) of any product @ KnifeCenter.com. Costs a little more than this knife, but I think you’ll like the fast/easy sharpening convenience on many of your bladed tools and kitchen cutlery.

The Mora among the fighters
I like this knife so much I have several of it.The edges and tip are sharp, and are also very easy to sharpen (couple of swipes with the ceramic stick).The handle is very comfortable. No sharp angles etc.I wrapped tennis racket grip around it for extreme sticky grip.Now you have the combo of a grippy handle and also durability and strength of the polypropylene scales .Much better than the Kraton handles around the tang which tend to deteriorate at time and use.This knife is very light and fast in hand.The steel is tough.I have used one in a destruction test.Stabbed the tip deep into wood, bend it sideways.The tip didn't break. It did bend. But no breaking.And it was a strong bending force .So. Very good in my opinion.

Exceptional value
An incredible edge, the width shows its effectiveness as a weapon, the edge easily touches up to razor sharpness, and the steel is solid. The sheath is quite adequate, and the price is extraordinary! A great tool and value.
