Kershaw Taskmaster Saw2
Item #: KE-2556
For 2021 Kershaw has brought back their folding saw with a revamped handle and color.
The Taskmaster Saw 2 removes the finger grooves from the original model, modernizing the design, but still providing plenty of control with its rubberized grips. For elevated use in a tree, the wider lanyard loop is easy to use and keeps the saw secure.
Compact and tough enough to take on even sizable branches this saw is an excellent choice for camping, hunting trips or even for the backyard.
The 7" saw blade is made from high-carbon steel that has been nickel plated for additional blade protection. The revamped glass-filled nylon handle is tan with black rubberized overmold. The push-button lock keeps the blade safely open during use, then releases with the push of a button for storage. The closed length is 9". Weighs 8.7 oz. Made in China. Suggested Retail $49.99.

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.
