From the Manufacturer:
The Kershaw Mixtape is designed to provide a perfect mix of all the qualities you want in a lightweight, easy-to-carry pocketknife.

Kershaw used a variety of strategies to keep the Mixtape's weight down. For instance, the handle features cutouts in the front and back. (You can you even see the single-position pocket clip through this handle "window," as it blends seamlessly with the rest of the knife.) The handle scales are glass-filled nylon, again for lighter weight. Additional weight relief is offered by the backspacer—or lack thereof. The Mixtape's open construction is easy to clean with a cotton swab and without disassembling the knife. See? Simple. Finally, a secure inset liner lock reduces weight even more by eliminating the need for a full internal liner. The result is a pocketknife that weighs just 2.7 ounces.

Yet the lightweight Mixtape also offers heavyweight performance. Its stonewashed blade is just over 3 inches and made of 8Cr13MoV steel, which takes a sharp, fine edge. The reverse tanto blade shape offers a sturdy tip that's ideal for piercing cuts. At the same, it has enough belly to handle most cutting tasks with ease.

Open the Mixtape using the built-in thumb disk. Flick it open quickly, one-handed, or go classic and simply fold the blade out of the handle. As a final touch, Kershaw added a custom decorative pivot for sharp looks, plus a bit of extra handle texture.

The 3-1/8" reverse tanto blade is made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel and has a hardness of 54-56 Rc. The closed length is 4-1/8". Weighs 2.7 oz. Made in China. Suggested Retail $43.99.

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.
