Kershaw Knives Compound Knife - 8 1/8 in. OAL Product Info
The Kershaw Knives Compound Knife is a sturdy knife with a perfectly textured handle. This knife by Kershaw Knives is a excellent knife for pocket carrya"especially if you want a utility knife that's built to do just about everything, and has a good, solid feeling and a value price. The blade of the Kershaw Knives Compound Straight Edge Knife is a modified drop-point with enough belly for excellent slicing capability and enough blade for just about everything else. The steel is 8Cr13MoV, basically the equivalent of the more well known AUS8A. Kershaw precision heat-treats this steel to bring out its very best, high-performance qualities, including hardness and wear resistance. The folding knife opens with a SpeedSafe assist for fast and easy one-handed opening. Just pull back on the ambidextrous flipper blade protrusion and SpeedSafe takes over, moving the blade out of the handle, ready for use. A locking liner secures the blade open until you release it. Something you'll definitely notice is the handle design. The handle's strong contours and slim "tail" fit neatly into the hand and provide a surprisingly secure grip. Once opened, the flipper protrusion on the blade doubles as an extended hard guard. Glass-filled nylon handle scales make this good-sized knife lightweight and comfortable enough for easy pocket carry. The Kershaw Knives Compound Folding Knife is a folding knife that can do a wide range of projects.
