I have several Shadow Tech Knives (STK) and in my opinion are a great value for the money. I just received my Street Fighter Karambit, black blade, black G10 scales and carbon fiber kydex sheath. The hawkbill blade shape is sharpened on both the inside and outside edges. The kydex sheath is great. I love the knife. My only recommendations for the knife would be bolt-on scales instead of pinned and the makers mark and steel type on the blade.
