The AD-15 might be the most comfortable, user friendly, sub 4 inch tactical folder we've ever made! Modeled after Andrew Demko's patented original, it offers ambidextrous operation and opens and closes with one hand. The saber ground spear point blade comes with a false edge and includes jimping on the spine to assure great piercing ability and edge control when precision cutting is required. The AD-15's unique hybrid handle is what distinguishes it the most; because it features Andrew's famous Scorpion Lock. You see, the bottom portion of the handle has 3D-machined G-10 scales mated to steel liners, while the upper portion of the handle, called the yoke is crafted from a 3D-machined 6061 aluminum billet that includes an integral back spacer. To open the knife, simply engage the thumb stud and watch the yoke rise up, until it falls snugly into a deep notch cut in the blade's tang. Held securely by constant pressure from the spring and, supported by the strength of one's grip, the Scorpion Lock is virtually immune from failure!
We think the AD-15 is worth every penny, but we realize its price tag might be out of reach for many fans who would like to own one. Well, the AD-15 Lite is the economical version those AD-15 enthusiasts have been waiting for. Identical in look, style and construction, to the original, the AD-15 Lite features a blade made of Japanese 10A steel and an injection molded Griv-Ex handle instead of the costly 3D CNC machined grip that is used on the standard AD-15.
