KS3880: 3880 Thermite
Kershaw Knives
 
TACTICAL AND PRACTICAL

A thermite is a mixture that, when ignited, produces a huge amount of heat. And we think you'll agree, the Thermite is hot.

With tactical styling and practical performance, the Thermite, designed by Rick Hinderer, has a great look and great features. The Thermite offers Rick's no-nonsense functionality, but with enough style that co-workers will look on with a satisfying touch of envy when you take the Thermite out of your pocket.

The 3 1/2-in. stonewashed blade is hollow-ground for excellent slicing capabilities with a flat-ground "spanto" tip for strong piercing. A machined G-10 front scale and a heavily textured backspacer add to the Thermite's good looks. On the practical side, the back handle is stainless steel with a frame lock and lockbar stabilizer. 

For easy opening, the Thermite is SpeedSafe-equipped and can be accessed with the ambidextrous flipper or thumbstud. It comes equipped with Kershaw's Quad-Carry/deep-carry pocketclip.
Features
  • Flipper - May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The "flipper" is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
  • SpeedSafe® - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
  • Quad-carry - The user may position the pocketclip for tip-up or tip-down, left- or right-handed carry.

Pros: Weight, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
A Quality Knife, and an Excellent Value
I purchased two of these, and (as would be expected of Kershaw) they are essentially identical; that's a good initial indicator of quality, IMHO. They are slim in the pocket, but fairly robust in the hand; the steel framelock is surprisingly thin, but certainly strong enough. The overall result is a knife that feels sturdy in use, without being too heavy to carry every day. The Spanto tip, which I thought might be more gimmick than feature, actually works quite well; it remains sharp, but is obviously less vulnerable to common types of tip damage due to use/misuse (the line is different for everyone!) that is common with some blade styles. Overall, excellent value for the money (especially on sale at KC) and a good knife regardless of price.

Kershaw Thermite
One of the best values out there in a folder! Great ergonomics, effective yet comfortable jimping. The pocket clip is deep carry design and I found it easier to draw with a small lanyard/fob. Great quality for the price.
