Black Kuro Serrated Edge

All eyes turn to you when you take the Kershaw Kuro out of your pocket and put it to work. The Kuro offers standout looks—and standout function. The blade is a modified—or Americanized—tanto with partial serration and a drop point. It has two primary blade grinds: at the tip and along the edge. This gives the Kuro a strong piercing tip with plenty of steel behind the tip to provide strength. The belly-less edge provides good slashing capability while the partial blade serration offers versatility for cutting fibrous materials with ease.

For speedy, one-handed opening, the Kuro has SpeedSafe assisted opening, accessed with the built-in flipper. Just pull back on the flipper blade protrusion to start the blade out of the handle. Then the SpeedSafe torsion bar takes over and the knife opens easily, ready for use. The ambidextrous flipper works perfectly for both lefties and righties.

The handle scales are glass-filled nylon for durability and dimensional stability, even in temperature extremes. The eye-catching pattern on the scales offers additional grip traction and looks like nothing else. A sturdy locking liner secures the blade open until you release it.

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.

Great knife at an even better price August 9, 2013
Reviewer: Ryan Bradley from Hastings, PA United States  
This knife is an all around good knife, at first I was skeptical of the nylon scales, but being glass filled it sits in your hand with a premium feel. The ease of opening this knife is something I've only seen in top of the line knives over $100, also the edge out of the box is unmatched and lasts and lasts, but when it comes time to sharpen this blade, it takes an edge no matter what sharpening tool you use. I've owned everything from Buck ( snapped the blades) to Gerber ( trouble getting an edge to stick) and everything in between,  but for my first Kershaw I can say I've found my new favorite brand, and I only purchased the less expensive knife and am taken by it's quality. Good work guys, this is an exceptional knife at an even better deal, you have a new lifetime customer.
