In addition to a drop-point blade with just the right amount of belly recurve for excellent slicing ability, the black Clash also has partial serration so that it can laugh at tough materials like webbing or rope. The blade steel is 8Cr13MoV for toughness, wear resistance, and excellent edge retention.Read more
Serrations assist in cutting through particularly tough or fibrous material, such as rope or cord. The Kershaw 2-step serration is a more aggressive style of serration.

The user manually pulls back on the protrusion with the index finger to open the blade.
