KS1160: 1160 Fraxion Folding Knife
Kershaw Knives
Kershaw and Danish custom knife and toolmaker, Jens Anso, have teamed up to create a handsome knife just right for the knife user who prefers a contemporary look. This slim, sleek design weighs in at a "Fraxion" of the weight of other comparable knives — under two ounces.

The Fraxion's lighter weight is thanks to the streamlined design as well as to the light-yet-strong G10 handles with carbon fiber overlay. An inset liner lock secures the blade open during use while also helping keep down the overall weight and helping maintain the handle’s comfortable slimness.

The clip point blade features a top swedge, a slight recurve to enhance slicing capabilities and a good-looking BlackWash finish. Built of 8CR13MoV stainless steel, the blade offers a sharp, long-lasting edge for day-to-day tasks. The Fraxion is a manual knife but can be opened quickly, easily, and one-handed with the built-in flipper. For convenient left or right-handed carry, the Fraxion is equipped with a reversible pocket clip, enabling it to ride comfortably low in the pocket.
  • Flipper - May be used with manual or assisted opening knives. Tee "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.
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Inset Liner Lock - A strip of stainless steel is riveted inside the knife’s handle—most commonly when the handle is a lightweight material. This enables us to create a slimmer, lighter knife, while still providing the strength and security of a locking liner.
  • 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: Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Handle Material, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
An edc for small tasks
Not a bad edc for the price. Incredibly light. Most of the weight is in the blade. Blade was dull out of the box, so I had to spend some time sharpening. That's most cases with kershaw packaged blades or any foreign made production knives for that matter. Carbon fiber accents aren't really accents, but fragile pieces adhered to an already stable handle. Ridged ease of opening to lock. All in all, once sharpened, an easily obtainable, small task edc for the price.

Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Excellent value for the dollar.
So, I decided to check out the Fraxion because it sounds amazing on paper. Well I got my first one and the detent was so hard that I could barely get it to open. Now with that said, I initiated an exchange and asked Knifecenter to check the detent on the replacement. As usual you guys came through and the replacement was everything I had hoped this knife would be. Crisp detent that really allows the blade to rocket out. You actually need to try to get it to fail opening. I must thank Kershaw for consistently giving us lefties an option to swap the clip. The clip point blade has a very small amount of recurve for those concerned with it. The g-10 with peel ply carbon fiber looks and feels nice though some of the edges are rather sharp.All in the cost of entry I feel this particular knife punches well above it's weight class, so give one a try. Thanks for reading, I hope it helped.
