The Shango XL adds cutting real-estate and extra handle displacement, along with Micarta scales, to the original Shango fixed blade. The biggest difference is in the grind. Joe Flowers, the designer, specified that the knife have a more accurate angle for a final edge on this flat grind workhorse. As a result, it excels at carving and sharpening. Of course, this wouldn't be the Shango, without the Shango Notch, cleverly designed by TOPS and Joe. The notch throws out major sparks, despite the roomy 5 inch Micarta handle. This handle has enough room for every hand out there. The large back end, allows for more grip when you need to get that extra power during light chopping. Removeable screws give the end user the option of placing a small ferrocium rod inside a secret slot without fully removing the scales. A nylon sheath is included.

"SHANGO" is one of the most powerful gods for many native African religions. Shango represents fire, lightning, and thunder. In the Caribean Yoruba religion, Shango lights up the darkness with lightning so followers can find their way. The god Shango also brings prosperity and good strategy to those who are deserving.
