All hunters need a good knife with which to cut, slice and chop their way through obstacles during an outdoor adventure. Yet, it can be tough to safely carry a knife that doesn’t fold down.
This Black Horse II Knife from Kershaw is a great, sturdy knife that works well as a pocket knife too. It also comes with a Real Tree Hardwoods camouflage design on the handle, so the knife blends into the woodsy background on hunting trips. The spring loaded release on the handle allows you to easily fold the knife down when you are done using it. Plus, the lock helps hold the blade in place when it’s fully deployed.
In addition, the co-polymer handle features an ergonomic ‘handprint’ design. The handle will fit comfortably in your hand when in use and will cut down on strain.
The knife is about 7 ˝ inches overall when fully opened. It is a good weight at about 4.6 inches. Plus, this knife comes with a handy nylon sheath so you can carry the Black Horse II anywhere you go.

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
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.
