Kershaw Echelon Plain Edge Knife

The Kershaw Echelon is a one of a kind in appearance. The Echelon features the SpeedSafe assisted opening mechanism and opens with a thumbstud that seems to float on air, hovering in the middle of an over-sized blade cutout. This is a special closeout buy that allows us to pass on the savings to our customers. Once they are gone, they are gone for good.

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.
