SKIF Shark II is a new generation of the most beautiful model from 400 Series. This knife boasts among others thanks to its aggressive design. The knife is multifunctional, with the original shape of the blade and thumb ramp, and handy flipper.
Shark II became more “toothy” because of new steel 9Cr18MoV, which contains more carbon and chrome than 8Cr13MoV.
The popular Wharncliffe blade profile provides wonderful cutting and piercing abilities. Flat grinds go 1/3 from the spine.
The Stonewash finish is a good protection from scratches and other wear marks. There is one way of pushing the blade open – a flipper tab, which looks like a sharks fin. The flipper forms a peculiar ramp for hand, that will be suitable in case of the forceful piercing. All these things with the ball bearing system contribute to smoothly blade openning.
The Frame Lock provides a reliable lock up to the blade when in use. The main advantage of this knives' new generation is riffling on the spine, handle, flipper, and even locking portion of the frame. The handle scales are manufactured from a durable and lightweight G-10, that provides a secure grip in wet hands or gloves. A handle also contains a lanyard hole and a pocket clip.
In general, the new generation of Shark knife is a fresh look at a time proved classics.
