Halloween may be over, but something wicked is still this way coming from Demko Knives: the Shark Cub. The Shark Cub takes the proven AD 20.5 design ethos, but shrinks it down fora Shark Lock-ified take on the sub-3 inch EDC.
It’s one of the enduring truisms in the knife world: release a knife in one size, and people will clamor for it in other sizes. Made a big knife? Some of us will pine for a smaller take. Had a shorty that became successful? We may talk you into taking it up into the mid- or large size class. Back in the day, these variations rarely happened, or, if they did, they took years to materialize; but with the faster, dynamic knife scene of today these options can come out much faster.
Which brings us to the Demko Knives Shark Cub, a very close relative of the Demko Knives AD20.5, albeit smaller. The AD 20.5 itself has a blade that measures a reasonable 3 inches, but the Cub drops the length down to 2.75 inches. Not only does the drop increase the legality of the hardworking design, but it also makes it more maneuverable, more deft – traits that come in handy for the small to medium-sized chores that comprise a large part of the suburban EDC workload.
I like the Shark Lock. Story is that Andrew came up with it at church, and had to run to the car to sketch it out as soon as the service ended.
