Black Clash Serrated Edge

The Clash goes to the dark side in the new black Clash. 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. The steel is precision heat-treated to bring out its high-performance characteristics. Black oxide coating enhances corrosion resistance and provides a great, non-reflective look. The black Clash opens with ease and authority thanks to Kershaw’s SpeedSafe® assisted opening system. A simple pull back on the flipper and SpeedSafe opens the knife super-smoothly and easily.

Textured glass-filled nylon handle scales offer a solid grip as the handle contours nestle securely into the hand. A locking liner locks provides a safe, secure, and solid blade lockup. As with all Kershaw knives, the black Clash is built with precision and offers the fit and finish you’ve come to expect from Kershaw. This Clash offers plenty of style, a multi-tasking blade shape, and the satisfaction of SpeedSafe opening in a value-priced knife.

Locking Liner
Locks the blade into position after the blade is deployed. To release the locking liner simply press the spring loaded lock and the blade will easily fold back into the handle.

SpeedSafe from Kershaw Knives revolutionized the knife industry when it was first introduced on the Ken Onion Chive. First off a knife that features SpeedSafe technology is not considered and automatic knife. The correct classification is an “Assisted Opening Knife. There are two variations of SpeedSafe. One being a “Flipper” where the user uses their index finger to deploy the blade, and the other the user uses the thumb stud found on the blade for deployment. Both variations require the user to apply manual pressure to overcome the resistance of the torsion bar. This is why a SpeedSafe does not meet the definition of being classified as a switchblade. A SpeedSafe will not deploy with the push of a button or by gravity alone. Once open, the blade locks safely into position until the user releases it. A key advantage of a SpeedSafe knife is that many of the models are ambidextrous, and can be opened just as easy by either a right or left handed person.


8CR13MOV Stainless Steel - Many knife enthusiasts will have heard that 8CR13MoV stainless is the equivalent of AUS8A. And it’s true. For everyday use, even a serious knife enthusiast would be hard-pressed to tell the difference between a well-made 8CR13MoV blade and a well-made AUS8A blade. Yet there are slight differences in the steel formula. While most other components are relatively equal, 8CR13MoV has slightly more carbon for hardness and wear resistance and slightly less nickel.

The key to blade performance for both of these steels is manufacturing quality. That’s where Kershaw’s expertise comes in. Kershaw precision heat-treats 8CR13MoV steel to bring out its best high-performance characteristics—the ability to take and hold an edge, strength, and hardness. 8CR13MoV is top-of the-line Chinese steel and, we believe along with Kershaw, offers our customers an excellent value.
