Description

Cold Steel Tiger Claw

The Cold Steel 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.

The Cold Steel Tiger Claw serrated is designed by Andrew Demko, with his renown Demko thumb-plate.
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.

Features the high performance Tri-Ad locking mechanism for added safety and strength.

The Cold Steel Tiger Claw  represents the future of folding Karambit design!

This exciting new multi-functional folder is simply overflowing with design innovations!

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. Therefore he 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. Therefore the  function of a working man’s Hawkbill.

It was tested and this is what was found:

It has a drastic curve to it, and the curve is there for a reason. (There is more on this in a bit.) The Tiger Claw, which custom knifemaker Andrew Demko came up with for Cold Steel. This is without a doubt a wicked-looking blade meant for serious self-defence use. The blade is only three inches in length; however, because of the curve, the actual cutting portion of the blade is a bit longer.

The handle is manufactured out of super-tough, black G10 material. Therefore it  is almost bullet-proof and once the domain of custom knife makers only. The handle has fine checkering, too. The handle alone is six inches in length, and the overall length of the (opened) Karambit is nine inches. Though it looks longer, but it’s not! The knife weighs-in at 5.1 oz, and the blade steel is Carpenter CTS XHP Alloy. I don’t know exactly what that is, but I’m impressed with this steel. It came sharp and stayed sharp though my testing.
