Description
KS1319: 1319 Grinder Folding Knife
Kershaw Knives
 
The Kershaw Grinder is designed to be put to work.

To that end, the Grinder offers a blade with a slightly curved belly for all-purpose cutting and slicing. A clipped, tanto-inspired tip offers excellent piercing capabilities, too. If you need to bear down on the back of the blade during a particularly tough cutting job, the concave spine with heavy jimping provides additional grip security. The work-ready blade is made of 4Cr13MoV steel for hardness and wear resistance. Then Kershaw expertly heat-treats it to enhance edge retention and strength.

The Grinder is always ready to go to work quickly thanks to the SpeedSafe assisted opening and convenient built-in flipper. A secure liner lock keeps the blade securely open during work until the user releases it. The glass-filled nylon handle is ergonomically contoured to fit the hand securely and grooved to offer an extra-secure grip. The deep-carry pocket clip is easily reversible for tip-down, right- or left-handed carry.
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.
  • Liner Lock - Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife’s steel “liner,” the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Pros: Handle Feel, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Blade Material
Finally corrected steel
Glad to see the steel type was finally corrected so nobody going toward has to be disappointed like I was. Still wondering why none of my previous reviews were posted... Nice design but sub-par blade steel and insufficient assist strength to fully open without wrist-flick. I was hoping this would be an adequate replacement for the awesome 'Needs Work'. Not so. Kershaw has done, and could do, much better with this design than this offering.

Cons: Ease of Opening
cool knife
The look of the knife is really cool. I preordered so I'm not sure if it was first run or intended, but the speed assist is not as strong as my other kershaws (by far). Also the liner lock is very tight, almost hard to close one handed.
