The Cold Steel AD-10 is a factory production version of Andrew Demko’s custom knife. This high quality beast has a flawless lockup and a clean, classic look. It easily stands with the best for tactical application, hunting expeditions, and even EDC.
The AD-10 features a razor-sharp, 4″ S35VN drop point with a satin finish. It opens with easily accessed, ambidextrous thumb studs, and we’re here to tell you, the opening on this knife is as smooth and snappy as one could ever want.
Once open, Demko’s outstanding Tri-Ad lock provides exceptional strength and secure lock-up. The flared finger guard keeps your fingers safe, and spine jimping adds even more grip.
The contour on the CNC machined G-10 handle is awesome. It’s incredibly comfortable and has a solid feel in the hand. What makes the AD-10 more affordable than it’s custom counterpart is the use of lightweight aluminum liners and back spacer. It comes with a molded tip-up pocket clip, and Cold Steel includes second pocket clip that can be swapped with the original for left handed carry.
