The Tigershark returns with a Power Switch that's better integrated, easier to use and now offers three flex options. Otherwise, it's the same tester favorite: wood core, extra mass over the edges, a tight GS sidecut and enough width that it never trenches too deeply. Testers love its confidence in crud, and nothing beats its edge-grip. "Floats, carves and rips with total versatility," said McGrath.
