The Link is made in Kershaw's manufacturing facility in Tualatin, Oregon. This popular knife has been produced with several different handles, for 2017 Kershaw has given it a new look of navy blue and BlackWash.

Features the patented SpeedSafe® assisted opening system for smooth, easy opening. This one-handed, index-finger opening design makes the knives easy to deploy, left or right-handed. The 420HC stainless steel is an excellent everyday steel; tough, corrosion resistant, easy to sharpen and takes a good edge. BlackWash™ is a name given to a specific knife blade finish. This is a variation of the Stone Wash blade finish which has become very popular over the past few years. BlackWash is accomplished by first coating the blade black and then adding the stonewash finish. This coating gives the knife that already broken-in look, like your favorite pair of jeans.

The 3-1/4” drop point blade has hardness of 56-58 Rc. The handles are machined from lightweight aluminum and anodized in navy blue. The pocket clip is reversible for a right or left hand tip-up carry. The closed length is 4-3/8". Weighs 4.8 oz. Made in the USA. Suggested Retail $69.99.

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, Zero Tolerance 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.
