New for 2017. The Malt is one of two new knives from Kershaw and custom knifemaker Gustavo Cecchini. Gus is known for his innovative knife technologies and the striking lines of his custom designs. The Malt features Gus' characteristic sculpted style but also has an interesting feature that Kershaw says just may have been inspired by the fine brew they were sharing with Gus at the time: the flipper on the knife doubles as a handy bottle opener.

Perfect as a EDC when you want your pocket knife to get a little extra attention. SpeedSafe equipped with a solid frame lock. The stainless steel handles and the 8Cr13MoV blade has a two-tone treatment. The single position tip-up pocket clip and back spacer have a blue coating.
The 3" modified tanto blade is made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel and has hardness of 58-60 Rc. The closed length is 4-1/4". Weighs 5.0 oz. Made in China. Suggested Retail $54.99.

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.
