The Kershaw Corral Creek Knife is quite similar to the Black Gulch Knife. Both are based on classic working knife designs and both are well-designed for heavy duty work. The Corral Creek really conjures up images of old western cowboy days and long nights on the open range. It is really just a knife that’s meant for the working man. The Corral Creek handle is edged in a Zinc die-cast alloy with a cross grooved ABS inlay. The blade is made of standard 8CR13MOV stainless steel, which resists rust and corrosion and is durable enough for long term use. Just like with the Black Gulch, this Corral Creek Knife features a Back Lock. The Back Lock locks the sharp and pointy blade into place when fully opened to reduce the risk of slippage when in use. The Back Lock is easy to release by pressing the spring loaded lock and folding the blade back down into the handle.
