about this product

The unique Ken Onion action on the Kershaw® knives gets smoother with every model. These knives open with what Kershaw® calls the "Speed Safe®" action. You open it 20% and the knife opens itself the remaining 80%. These two models share a molded handle that is checkered nicely and shaped to be very comfortable in any position. Really well thought out and well executed. Locks with a Walker style lock. Blades measure 3-3/8" long by 1" wide and 1/8" thick. Open length is 7-3/4", tip to butt. Weighs 4 oz. Suggested retail $94.95.

Kershaw Knives

Kershaw Knives was founded in 1974 in Portland, Oregon when knife salesman Pete Kershaw started a cutlery company that would make knives from his designs. Japanese based KAI Cutlery manufactured those designs. In 1978, KAI Cutlery purchased Kershaw Knives and the company, renamed KAI USA Ltd., continues today with three product lines; including the original Kershaw Knives and Shun Cutlery which primarily markets kitchen cutlery.

Over the years, Kershaw Knives has worked with several custom knifemakers. Cutlery Hall of Famer Ken Onion, a custom knife maker and inventor of the “SpeedSafe” assisted opening mechanism, is the premier knife designer for Kershaw Knives. Kershaw has also collaborated with custom knifemakers Grant and Gavin Hawk, Frank Centofante, and Ernest Emerson. Kershaw has released models that were developed in collaboration with National Geographic, Jeep, Orange County Choppers, the American Professional Rodeo Association, and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

Kershaw manufactures excellent knives and has built a very strong customer fan base due to their innovative designs and their quality control.
