Shirogorov Quantum Gen 2
Sergey and Igor Shirogorov, rest his soul, produce some of the finest knives available. They’re a pair of Russian custom knifemakers with a true worldwide following. Their custom division knives are some of the rarest and most sought after on the market and their mid-tech models, which this one is, are just about the same. They feature the same hand fit and finishing and exquisite detail work as the custom division knives, without the exorbitant price tag. These are true works of art and simply beautiful.
The Quantum is one of the most stylish Shirogorov knives we’ve ever seen and it still features the unparalleled fit and finish that set Shiros apart from all the rest. The flipping action is nothing short of incredible, combining a perfect detent with a smooth bearing system for unimpeded, glass-like smoothness. The slight upsweep of the blade transitions into a very ergonomic handle with nice finger grooves and thumb ramp for a comfortable grip. The lock face is outfitted with a replaceable lockbar insert and jimped for increased traction so you won’t slip while unlocking the blade. It’s fine details like this that you are getting when you step into the realm of a Shirogorov, in addition to the excellent pocket clip and an incorporated lanyard hole in the backspacer. There isn’t a single aspect we’d change on this incredible design, get one for yourself to truly know what we mean!
