Cold Steel 22KF Tiger Claw Karambit - CTS-XHP Blade - Black G-10 Handle

The blade was designed following Andrew Demko’s extensive testing and experimentation as a Journeyman Electrician and Engineer. When making his own multi-purpose hand-made 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 G-10 handle, a matte black aluminum ring , and Cold Steel's exclusive Tri-Ad® locking system. The Tri-Ad® lock is designed to withstand terrific impact forces while being almost impervious to shock, it has passed the most gruesome torture testing in the industry.

More about CTS-XHP steel
Carpenter American CTS® XHP is a high carbon, high chromium powdered alloy steel with very impressive edge holding abilities. With an extra fine, uniform grain structure it out performs its ingot-steel equivalents by a large margin. This high performance steel has been used in everything from superior custom kitchen cutlery to surgical tools. It can also be polished to a beautiful satin finish, making it an excellent choice for high end every day carry knives, especially those that require a very fine cutting edge.
