Description
KS4037: 4037 Atmos Folding Knife
Kershaw Knives
 
The blade on the ultra-refined Atmos is a slim, modified drop point with top swedge, machine satin finished on the grinds and satin sanded on the flats. The handle is lightweight G10 with a secure—and weight-reducing—inset liner lock. The handle inlay is carbon fiber, yes. But it is unlike other carbon fiber inlays you may have seen.

To ensure your experience with the Atmos is cloud-smooth and blue-sky easy, Kershaw chamfered—smoothed and angled—the edges of the insert to make sure it feels comfortable when you hold it in your hand and that it glides into and out of your pocket smoothly and easily, too.

Designed by Dmitry Sinkevich, the Atmos features Sinkevich's characteristic clean and practical design—but enhanced with extra detailing. In addition to the chamfered carbon-fiber inlay, it also has a custom oversized pivot, a backspacer with wide lanyard attachment, and a reversible, deep-carry pocket clip. This manual knife opens quickly and easily with Kershaw's KVT ball-bearing opening system. Extra detailing like this gives the Atmos a refined style that easily bridges the gap from workday to night on the town.
Features
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Cons: Pocket Clip, Blade Material
Great EDC
This knife is a great EDC alternative to the ZT0450 series. It carries and cuts the same. I actually prefer this inset liner lock over either frame or liner lock. Besides making the knife much lighter, on the ZT0450 if you squeeze the frame a bit when opening it stops the action - this doesn't happen on the Atmos. I deducted 1 star as it feels a bit sharp edged in the pocket. In searching for what felt sharp, I concluded it is just the sharp 90 degree edges on all the flats, both blade and scales. I will probably take mine apart and just polish/sand off the edges a bit, then it should be perfect. I agree with other reviewers, I would pay more for better materials and blade steel. The Atmos is almost underpriced for what it is - truly amazing!

Everything the Nura was expected to be.
For this price point...what can you say. This knife is excellent and exactly what it should be. For the previous reviewer...what you are feeling as "gritty" on the close is actually the detent ball having to hop up on to the blade Steel is well treated and expected at this price point. The knife is overall similar to the Fraxion, which I also own and like, but it's a "better" designed version. I also agree with the last reviewer that I'd love to see one in the $75-100 range with better materials. This is certainly better than knock off Shirogorov neons at the same price point...and it's giving the designer his dues.In conclusion an excellent light to medium duty edc. I don't see it leaving my rotation any time soon. Thanks for reading and I hope it helped.

Better than expected!
As an avid EDC user as well as a collector, I tend to expect a lot out of my blades. Generally I only buy higher end models but for some reason the Atmos stood out to me. So without ever holding one I ordered and am nothing short of impressed with this ~$30 folder.The KVT ball bearing system is amazing. This is a rare model that doesn’t include Kershaw’s prided speed safe awaited opening system. But the thing is, it opens like it has one. The deployment is fast and lockup is solid. Sharp right out of the box. G-10 scales are good and the carbon fiber inlays give it a classy look. Blade centering is perfect, no adjustment needed.I have it 4 Stars only because of a few small issues; 1) there is a small hang up when trying to close the blade one-handed. It’s part of the ball bearing system. Not critical and may get better over time as it gets worn in. 2) Wish it was offered in a better blade steel. 8Cr13MoV is a fine metal for everyday tasks but I’d like to see it offered in at least 154cpm, even at a higher price point. The jimping is a bit soft, but I wouldn’t expect anything more aggressive given the overall nature of the knife.At the price point, it’s an excellent value. It’s not going to be the work horse my Mini Griptilian is, but makes for an excellent EDC.
