Stedemon ZKC-C03 Shy IV 2017 Tanto Liner Lock Knife Black G-10 (3.8" Black SW)

This ZKC-C03 model sports a black stonewashed tanto blade and a black G-10 handle with a concave texture and a titanium pivot collar.

Stedemon has created a budget version of their extremely popular Shy IV model with the same great build and a 440C stainless steel blade. The ZKC-C03 offers a slim, lightweight design while maintaining a large blade and handle profile. If you're tired of tiny, keychain worthy knives, the C03 delivers with a hefty 3.8" blade. G-10 handles with flow through construction allow for a larger size without weighing down your pockets. A tip up pocket clip and a blue G-10 backspacer finish of the impressive EDC design.

  • KVT ceramic ball bearing pivot provides fast and smooth blade deployment.
  • Flow-through construction for a lightweight build that is easy to clean and maintain.
  • G-10 handles with a carved concave design offer a reliable grip with ergonomic comfort.

Customer Reviews

Great Knife
Cesar R. on May 1, 2020

This knife IMO is the funnest knife I own. I have over 100 knives, but this thing is addicting to play with. Well made, good fit n finish, rockets out and drops shut. Has better action than some high end stuff. The 440 takes a killer edge and does so without much effort. Blade centered and no wiggle. The G10 is a tiny bit rough around the edges out of box, but I took a light file to it and it’s super smooth now. I recommend this one from Stedemon, well done!

Stylish Knife
Tristan M. on Oct 31, 2019

Just a cool knife. Very lightweight compared to it's blade size. I really like the ceramic bearings that make the deployment and closing very smooth. Matched with a thumb plate makes snappy deployment. Only downside is the sometimes sharp edges of the g10 scales.

Great edc

Bought this knife about a month back so far it’s been a great knife opens fast, blade is centered I’d definitely recommend this knife

Thin blue line
SCOTT K. on Jun 16, 2017

When this is in your pocket, you see the thin blue line. It opens well with thumb flip and with reverse drop opening, traditional japanese tip, spine of open knife is perfectly flat. I bought black handle with satin blade then saw all black with blue trim and bought 2 of those.. Thin blue line is getting thinner

philip r. on Mar 21, 2019

got this a while ago and at first I wasn't sure. but the more I carried it the more I like it. runs on ball bearings so blade falls free. great design, feels good in the hand. only down side is 440c. for the price of this knife you should get better steal. it is a big knife
