New for 2017. The Westin was designed by Les George. The long lean lines make it a good-looking carry, while the all-purpose blade makes it convienient for most any cutting task.

Inspired by the character Michael Westin on the USA Network's Burn Notice. The Westin is a larger knife with a 3-3/8" drop point blade made of 8Cr13MoV steel. The blade has a symmetrical profile and blade grind. The top grind slims the blade and emphasizes the point. The stonewashed finished blade looks good and helps to hide those hard-use scratches. SpeedSafe assisted opening for a simple, smooth, one-handed opening.

The handle is contoured to fit the hand for a secure grip. The textured glass-filled nylon front handle scale enhances your grip even more. The stonewashed finished stainless steel back features a secure frame lock. The Westin's pocketclip is reversible for a tip-up left or right-hand carry.

The blade has hardness of 58-60 Rc. The closed length is 4-3/8". Weighs 4.0 oz. Made in China. Suggested Retail $44.99.

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.
