Sparring has always been a big part of Lynn's design process and he often says that many of his "what if" moments happen in the gym. It was in one such training session that Lynn had a thought - What if the Shanghai Shadow was as big as a bowie knife?
This question led to numerous prototypes that eventually became what Cold Steel began to refer to as the Shanghai Master.
At 16" long, the Shanghai Master is as big as many bowie knives, but with the advantage of a super wide, double edged cutting blade.
Its solid full tang blade is continuously curved top and bottom for maximum cutting and slashing potential with either edge, with a reinforced central spine to add stiffness and rigidity to the point.
Its sturdy steel ring allows deft manipulation between grips, making it incredibly fast and lively in the hand, and its removable high impact polypropylene scales make it remarkably comfortable to hold and use.
The Shanghai Masters massive blade is safely contained within a versatile and adaptable Secure-Ex sheath for ease of carry in virtually any pack or gear configuration.
