Designed to be just a right-sized, tough and EDC work knife. The Swerve features a drop point blade that is extra-wide that offers excellent slicing and can handle just about any other kind of cutting task as well. The 8Cr13MoV stainless steel offers good edge-holding capabilities. The blade has a stonewashed finish to help hide those hard-use scratches.

The contoured handle that "swerves" slightly fits comfortably in the hand. Kershaw's exclusive K-Texture™ on the glass-filled nylon handle enhances the grip. The Swerve opens one-handed with SpeedSafe using either the flipper or thumbstud. For convenient carrying, it also has a deep-carry pocket clip that is reversible for left or right hand carry.

The 3" modified drop point blade has hardness of 58-60 Rc. The closed length is 4-1/4". Weighs 4.7 oz. Made in China. Suggested Retail $39.99.

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.
