The Shrike was initially conceived by designer Gavin Coleman in early 2017 as a purpose made defensive knife during his involvement in the development of The Maul system. The experiences of this development and combative exploration was a major influencing factor in the design of the Shrike, and after several design evolutions it remains one of the most formidable defensive EDC knives on the market.

The Pikal style was chosen for the Shrike due to its simplicity of function, but also its devastatingly destructive ability. The Pikal configuration offers the user the ability to deliver severe damage to an opponent with very base, and quite instinctive movement patterns. This style of knife has since become a hallmark of Ironside Edge Works’ and one of our specialties.

The Shrike has been designed with an ergonomic handle which allows for fast indexing on the draw, without snag points for concealed carry. The shape of the handle offers the user a secure and natural grip, which helps to drive the point of the blade with a neutral wrist. The blade is free hand ground from thick stock to ensure a point that can be driven through thicker materials, and survive the rigours of combat. The edge geometry is a flat ground on an inward curve blade, with a fine edge that does severe damage to organic soft tissues.

This Shrike is serial number SH172 and was recently completed and made available. A relatively simple configuration of a 1 and 3/4 edge blade with Matte Black Cerakote finish. The handle is a solid Carbon Fiber scale with our signature Tsuka texture pattern. A great utilitarian option which has a touch of flair. This shrike comes with a fold over kydex sheath.

This ia great, simple utilitarian defensive EDC knife that is ready to go right away.
