Sharks have been around for over 420 million years, and estimates are that there are about 440 different spieces. The shark (superiorsela chimorpha) has a highly streamlined body, with a full cartilaginous skeleton. Generally the well known species are considered apex predators on the top of the underwater food chain. Realistically speaking the sharks tremendous bite is well known to rip and tears its prey apart. TOPS® knives used the input from a variety of field operators to design and develop the Shark Heat model; The new edition to their F.D.X. (Field Duty X-teme) series. They worked with search and rescue personnel, white water kyakers, climbers, E.M.T.'s, mariners, climbers, survival instructors, fire departments, etc. To refine and enhance the basic design. The wide blade with lots of large serrations, are enhanced by a very posive index finger grip, that in most circumstances eliminates the slippery when wet factor. This is now a tried and tested design, which has proven its worth in the field. ...This is definitely a "special tool" for many circumstances...For guys that don't backdown...
