      The Mako Shark is a unique blend of  a number of different style blades.  This combination of blades creates a large utility knife with cutting power and the ability to do fine detailed work. The blade profile provides a number of different angles allowing the user to do anything from a full swing to whittle. A change of angle at the tip  allows you to do wrist snap cuts in tight areas as well as pestle style cuts. A weight forward design makes this an aggressive cutter. Each blade has three grind zones; thin just in front of the handle. A bit thicker at the sweet spot to get materiel to pop. At the tip there is a medium grind for tip strength but it is still thin enough for piercing and quick cuts on fine material. A full convexed grind in combination with Diving Sparrows heat treat creates a proven edge for long lasting use.
