Part of Kershaw's popular Starter Series, value-priced knives that offer lots of style and solid performance, the Misdirect is no exception.

The blade is a perfect size for everyday cutting tasks. The reverse tanto style ensures the tip is effectively positioned for piercing cuts and enables the Misdirect to slice through tough packaging and open quantities of mail with ease. Kershaw coated the blade with black-oxide and finished it in BlackWash™, an attractive combination that can also hide scratches.

Access the capable blade with Kershaw's tried-and-true SpeedSafe® assisted opening, which helps you open the Misdirect with minimal effort. The efficient flipper double-purposes as a fingerguard when the knife is open. The stainless steel handle is smooth, sleek, and modern. Bead-blasting gives it a non-reflective matte finish that looks great. The Kershaw logo is lasered on the handle instead of the blade to maintain the Misdirect's clean and minimalistic style.

The Misdirect offers 3 pocketclip positions. A textured backspacer transitions into a handy lanyard hole at the end of the handle. If you're looking to get started in the knife world—without busting the budget—don't miss the Misdirect.

The 3” tanto blade is made from 4Cr13 stainless steel and has a hardness of 57-59 Rc.  The closed length is 4". Framelock. Weighs 3.3 oz. Made in China. Suggested Retail $34.99.

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.
