Somebody, anybody, PLEASE talk the Demkos into making an American Lawman-sized version of this knife!

I love the Demko stuff until I try to carry em at work. They are just not sized for "office carry".

Took the words out of my mouth. Since he posted the prototype I’ve been dreaming about it being released production in s45vn

I have the blue G-10 20CV version as well, and it's way too much fun to play with. It's basically exactly what I was itching for earlier in the year – overbuilt and strong as heck, very fidget-friendly with great action, and has satisfying use of thumbstuds. With what I'm realistically going to be doing with a folder and at this blade stock thickness and geometry, I'm totally good with 20CV over 3V for the edge retention. Favorite new knife of the year for me too.

I have to say, I'd buy one of these if Cold Steel ever made them with phosphor bronze washers (I'm sure they'd sell incredibly well).

Just as a sidenote, adding external stops to a knife that already has an internal stop pin is not something that would actually work well in application. Adding another constraint to a system that is fully constrained just doesn't work well (the knife blade would locate off of one feature, not both – especially if you consider wear). However, I do think you're right, external stop pins would have a very slight advantage if someone were prying with a knife. Perhaps we're overthinking the knife. It doesn't have to be a Hinderer. It looks amazing as-is. 🙂

I watch your videos too much. Now, I just ordered one from KnifeCenter (can I say that?) before they're gone again. DLT and other vendors I use are out of stock 😉

Hell yes. Everything about the AD20 screams to me. I have been waiting for Knife Center to drop these. And then yesterday I saw one with Full ti in the after market. Luckily I jumped on it, because Blade Center sold out of the G10 I wanted FAST. NOW my wallet is empty but my heart is full, of anticipation.

Yeah dude, just yeah. I got mine in MG 3V (sharp as all heck) with custom shaped layered two-toned g10 for a little bit more cashola. Sent you some pics on IG a couple weeks ago. Awesome review. Nailed it. This is my #1. Yep.

The best Demko yet. So good I had to order a second. Also, both of mine are 3V, it just fits the character of this knife better than 20CV
