Kershaw Knives
The lightweight Kershaw Reverb is ideal for backpacking, camping, hiking, and other outdoor activities. With its lightweight design and no flipper or thumb stud to catch on anything, the Reverb is ready to go with you on your next outdoor adventure. The built-in carabiner clip makes it easy to clip to backpack or harness

The Reverb is a manual opening knife but can be opened one-handed thanks to the large machined recess in the blade. Just use your thumb to push outward on the recess and rotate the blade into place — with no protruding thumb stud or flipper in the way.

The Reverb offers a reliable blade of 8Cr13MoV that takes and holds its Kershaw-sharp edge for a long time. Its modified drop point blade shape is perfect for just about any task you’ll encounter. Gray PVD coating on the grinds provides additional protection against the elements. A satin finish on the blade flats and on part of the back handle adds visual interest. The front handle scale is light-yet-strong G10 with a carbon fiber overlay and contoured for a solid grip.

For safe use, the Reverb has a secure frame lock to lock the blade open during use. It also features a built-in carabiner clip that makes it easy to attach to a backpack or harness for easy access. Alternatively, you can pocket-carry the Reverb. It’s equipped with a special deep-carry pocket clip that allows for extra-deep carry so that even in an active outdoor situation, it will stay securely down in your pocket.
  • Multifunction - Has multiple blades or tools, enabling it to perform multiple functions.
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • 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.
  • Single Position - The pocket clip is in a fixed position on the knife handle; usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary.

Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.
G10 Handles

Formed in a sheet under high pressure by combining fiberglass and an epoxy resin binder. These handles are lightweight and shaped to ensure a solid grip.

Cons: None
Awesome lil edc
Awesome little edc. Obviously it's light weight due to it's size but preforms well. Had to turn over my first at a concert so I grabbed another because I love this little knife. Would have left it in the car with my others before the show but over looked it due to it's non-obtrusive carry. It just melts into your pocket and you will never know it's there.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, None
So close to perfect
Really well thought out knife and the execution is almost perfect. It really is an ingenious design and the materials are well chosen . Very lightweight and fits well in the hand. I really like that it has a deep carry clip and a very discreet (tiny) one at that. The lock mechanism can be tricky to use to fold the knife which is one downside. My particular example also has tooling marks that are quite visible in the milled out portion of the blade. Overall for the price the value is very high, especially for a knife that is cheap enough to beat on.
