Kershaw 1445 Half-Ton Folding Knife 2.5" Blade, Red GRN Handles
A WIDE BLADE WONDER
The little guy's always the toughest. That's certainly true of the Half-Ton. The short, chubby blade works on and on.
A wider blade like the Half-Ton's is designed for easier slicing. In a utility knife, that means everything from slicing open a box to cutting up some apple slices to go with lunch. The Half-Ton's blade is stout and on the shorter side at just 2.5 inches. Nevertheless, this solid, tough knife is perfect for most jobs around the shop or garage. We gave the Half-Ton a high grind to slim the blade, so even though the blade is quite wide, it still moves through whatever you're cutting with ease.
A locking liner secures the blade open when in use and releases easily. Jimping on the top of the handle provides additional purchase for your thumb and an index-finger contour fits the hand securely. To make the Half-Ton even easier to hang onto, Kershaw adds glass-reinforced nylon handles with grippy, non-slip inserts. The handles are extra-sturdy and impact resistant.
And just for grins, Kershaw completes the package with their patented Wrench Clip, the pocket clip shaped like a mini-wrench.
