1605CKTST - Clash from Kershaw and Ken Onion, Black Polyimide Handle, Black Serrated Edge Blade
A drop-point blade with just a little recurve enables this multipurpose knife to excel at a wide variety of tasks, from slicing to rope cutting. It features a blade of 8CR13MoV stainless steel, which Kershaw heat-treats to ensure its strength, hardness, and ability to hold a keen edge. The Black Clash is SpeedSafe equipped and priced to be an excellent value. Handsome black-oxide blade coating and lightweight, black scales make it rock extra hard.
SpeedSafe® is the patented, assisted opening mechanism pioneered by Kershaw that makes it fast and easy to open a knife one-handed. SpeedSafe also makes it possible for Kershaw to ensure that even a large blade can move out of the handle just as smoothly and easily as a smaller one. Plus, many of their assisted folders are ambidextrous—and open with a flipper or a thumbstud on both sides of the blade—so they’re just as easy to use left-handed or right. To open a SpeedSafe knife, the user must apply manual pressure to overcome the resistance of the torsion bar. This means that SpeedSafe knives do not meet the definition of a switchblade; they do 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.
