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

This ZKC-C03 model sports a black stonewashed tanto blade and a jade green 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

Affordable quality!
David B. on Feb 22, 2019

First off, it is made in China. That being said, the workmanship is great! Fit and finish is better than expected and the action is butter-smooth so far. I haven’t made much use of the cutting edge yet so I can’t speak to the quality of heat treat on the blade. But overall I am impressed with this knife.

Worth it

Ultra smooth, great action. The edge is nice and polished the 440c has no problem cutting

Awesome for the price

Super smooth and slim makes a great large edc if you don't mind 440c

A bit to be desired
Nicholas F. on Dec 17, 2018

The looks of this knife are definitely what make it great. Blade steel isn't premium, but it was sharp out of the box! Good fit and finish. My biggest problem is the thumb "disk." Thought it wouldn't be an issue but I can't open as easily as my knives with standard thumb stud. Missed opportunity for "wave" feature in my opinion. Still looks awesome!

Knife is solid, not an EDC
Alan M. on Dec 26, 2018

Clip is in wrong orientation for any purposeful pocket clip carry. Not possible to change clip assembly. I’m keeps the knife because it’s good construction and to remind me to verify clip placement before any future purchases.
