The Shark combines two useful and common climbing tools into one: a stainless steel nut tool, and a razor-sharp locking knife. The serrated blade is machined from surgical quality 440-C stainless steel. While the locking blade can be opened and closed with one hand, it will not open when clipped to a carabiner.
Ultratape runners and draws use a nylon and dyneema weave to create 12 mm of light, durable and extremely strong (22 kN) webbing.
