KS1870OLBLK: 1870OLBLK Knockout Olive/Black
Kershaw Knives
 
THE KNOCKOUT PACKS AN EVEN BIGGER PUNCH IN OLIVE & BLACK

The Kershaw Knockout certainly is just that...a knockout. This US made frame lock features such time tested features as SpeedSafe assisted opening, ambidextrous flipper, and four position pocket clip. It moves beyond the original Knockout by sporting olive drab handles and a black DLC coated blade!
 
The original Knockout continues to deliver knockout good looks and top performance. But now we've kicked it up a notch with an olive-green handle and black DLC-coated blade.

The new olive-and-black Knockout still has its namesake “knocked out” section in the handle. This knocked-out piece in the anodized aluminum frame is replaced with a stainless-steel plate to form our sub-frame lock. This steel plate moves behind the knife blade to lock it open safely and securely. Yet because only part of the knife handle or frame is steel, the Knockout can maintain a lighter fighting weight and still provide a strong lock. The result is a knife that’s big, yet lightweight enough to carry every day.

The blade is a modified drop point in high-performance Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel with matte black DLC coating. The steel offers excellent corrosion resistance and hardenability, while the coating protects the blade and enhances performance.

The Knockout is equipped with SpeedSafe® assisted opening for smooth and easy one-handed opening. Just pull back on the built-in flipper or push on the thumbstud and the blade moves out of the handle quickly and easily.

The new olive-and-black Knockout also comes with Kershaw’s deep-carry pocketclip so the knife can sit all the way down in the pocket. Even better, the handle is drilled for 4-position carry. Lightweight and versatile, this Knockout provides a new color combination that will make it an ongoing favorite.
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.
  • Sub-Frame Lock - One side of a lightweight handle, or frame, is fitted with a steel plate integral to the frame; it is the part of the frame that moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. Sub-Frame Lock knives can be larger and lighter knife yet with an extremely secure lock.
  • Quad-carry - The user may position the pocketclip for tip-up or tip-down, left- or right-handed carry.
  • Made In The USA - When you see this on one of the knives, it means this knife was made in eir Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
All around great knife from a reliable company.
I had done some fairly extensive research into the ideal knife for myself and after a while I came to the conclusion that the Kershaw Knockout would do wonderfully. I first attempted to buy it on Amazon but there were some issues with the seller so I came here instead. The knife itself was a bit more expensive but shipping was much lower so I actually saved money by coming here. As for shipping, I ordered the knife around noon on a thursday and it arrived at about 9:00 the following monday morning. It was well packaged with more than enough material to keep the product safe. Now for the knife itself. It really is everything I wanted and more. The spring assist is extremely quick and responsive, the blade came sharp enough to shave the hair off my arm, and the aluminum handles make it deceptively light while still giving it a decent balance. The pocket clip was too tight so I had to spend about 30 sec stretching it to my desired tension. Overall the knife was well worth the money and KnifeCenter.com made my life much simpler than it could have been.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Ease of Opening
Cons: None
Best Transferable Pocket Clip
An absolutely knockout of a knife. Please note, the previous review from Eric regarding the clip was incorrect and misleading. In my opinion, the fully changeable clip sends this EDC over the top. Left, Right, tip down, tip up, minimal design and deep carry; and I've only reviewed the clip so far. Kershaw got this one right. Perfect blade centering, no blade play up down or side to side, solid lock up, very light and slim. Knockout is a literal meaning as well. Hold the closed knife in the palm of your hand and curl your fingers around the back of the knife. Place your thumb on the top slanted end of the knife and use the butt end as an option for hand to hand self defense. The only draw back is the lack of traction. It is a slick knife.

Pros: Handle Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Pocket Clip
A must buy
The shape of the blade makes this knife able to do simple jobs like opening boxes to more specialized ones like cutting meat or skinning an animal. The large flat blade makes me feel comfortable for strength and durability, despite how lite this knife feels overall in the hand. The quick opening allows fast deployment for the task needed and kershaw has the single best customer service/product warranty I've ever experienced! I own at least half a dozen kershaw knives and have not been disappointed yet. Finally, this particular model was made in the USA. If you don't own a kershaw I strongly suggest you buy one and this knife is a great one to start with. The only con is I prefer the clip to be at the top of the blade not the bottom. This is a personal preference but still didn't stop me from buying.
