When you see this on one of our knives, it means the knife was made in our Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.
A blade composed of several types of steel brazed together in a permanent joint; the technology enables Kershaw to use steel known for edge holding on the edge, strength on the spine for the best of both worlds.
SpeedSafe is the patented, assisted opening system built into many of Kershaw's best selling Ken Onion knives. SpeedSafe assists the user to smoothly open the knife with a manual push on the blade's thumb stud or Index Open system. (Index-Open uses a protruding portion of the blade's finger guard to give the user an alternative to the thumb stud. The user manually pulls back on the protrusion with the index finger to open the blade.
May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The "flipper" is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
Locks the blade into position after the blade is deployed.
To release the frame lock simply press the spring loaded lock and the blade will easily fold back into the handle.
Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
