    Demko AD20.5 G-10

    Posted by Ron on Oct 21st 2023

    The fit and finish of this knife is excellent, however, there are a couple issues I have that skews my rating it to a 3. First, the texture on the G-10 is quite aggressive. I found it too rough for my liking and it will certainly cause wear on the pocket. The second issue I have is with the placement of the shark lock slider. I found it to be too far back on the knife to be comfortable as a thumb ramp. When I place my thumb on the spine I have to ensure that it’s in a spot where the lock fits comfortably. Ultimately, I chose to return this knife as the ergonomics didn’t work for me.
