The folding QSP Knife Shark can be definitely fall into the category of large folders (folder => folding knife). Size, performance and shape directs its use for everyday use (EDC – Every Day Carry) and for tactical activities.
The blade has a flat grind and is made in a drop point style, which makes the blade very versatile and functional. The 440C stainless steel retains very good cutting properties and is easy to sharpen. The blade has quite slight jimping, which supports the thumb during cuts requiring pressure, and if necessary can be used as a mini-saw. Blade is covered by titanium coating with stone wash finish.
Smooth opening of the knife is done thanks to the flipper sticking out of the blade, which, after unfolding the blade, serves as a hand guard to prevent your hand from slipping on the cutting edge and potential injuries. Slow opening occurs thanks to the dedicated opening on the blade. In both cases, the knife is unfolded very freely and smoothly thanks to the knife’s steel ball bearing. The knife has a self-adjusting stable opening when it opens, protecting against uncontrolled closing during use (liner lock).
Lining of the handle is made of thick, durable olive G10 composite with a non-slip and rough form to ensure a stable grip. The material of the lining of the handle is resistant to moisture, temperature changes, most solvents and acids and most importantly is characterised by high resistance to mechanical damage.
Easy to carry
A steel clip with the possibility of mounting on one or the other side of the handle ensures stable carrying in the pocket, mounting to a backpack, saddlebag, etc. In the rear of the handle there is a triangular opening created from providing access to the steel part of the knife skeleton, which does not protrude beyond its outline. It is dedicated for fastening with a rope , string, paracord etc., or a larger carabiner, which is not difficult due to the quite large size of the opening. This simple solution makes it easy to take the knife out of the pocket, hang it around the neck, etc. Of course, this is also an additional protection against losing the knife when carrying or using it.
