Demko Knives series

Demko Knives AD20.5

The AD20.5 knives are produced in Taiwan and made of high-quality materials. They are available in different premium steel types like CPM 3V or CPM 20CV, and in different handle materials like G10 or titanium. There's something for everyone! The AD20.5 is equipped with the popular Shark-Lock.

Demko Knives AD20

The AD20 collection is made in the USA, unlike the AD20.5 collection which is produced in Taiwan. The AD20 is a bit larger, making it suitable for heavy-duty use. The AD20 is available in a variety of premium steel types and handle materials and is equipped with the popular Shark-Lock locking system.

Demko Knives FreeReign

The FreeReign series is designed to be a hard-use knife for intensive use. This is reflected in the 5-mm thick blade and the grippy handle. You can clearly see Andrew's style. For example, the handle resembles the Cold Steel AD10 and AD15. The FreeReign comes with a patent-pending MOLLE-compatible kydex sheath. A special feature of the sheath is its construction which ensures your knife doesn't lose its sharp edge.

Demko Knives Armiger

The Armiger collection consists of two sizes of fixed knives: the smaller Armiger 2 and the larger Armiger 4. The Armiger 2 comes with a kydex sheath with a clip that allows you to carry the knife around your neck or attach it to your keys. The Armiger 4 comes with the FreeReign sheath, patent pending.

Demko Knives Shark-Cub

The Knives Shark-Cub was created in response to fans' demand for a smaller, more compact pocket knife. The Shark-Cub also features the innovative Shark-Lock lock and is available in different blade shapes. With its smaller size and deep-carry pocket clip, the Shark-Cub is ideal for EDC use.
