SLT REVS UP THE TURISMO

Like its bigger brother, the Collateral, the Turismo delivers an all-new opening method to Kershaw: the SLT (Spring-Loaded Tab), originally created by Gus T. Cecchini of GTC Knives.

Instead of a flipper sticking out beneath your knife, with SLT, the flipper stays almost completely hidden within the handle. But just pull back on it - like a standard flipper - and the Turismo opens easily with SpeedSafe assisted opening. Visually, the SLT hidden tab gives the Turismo a smooth, sleek look.

The Turismo is a smaller knife - just right for when you want a more compact EDC. With a handle length of 3.8", it doesn't take up much space in your pocket, but you can still get a solid four-finger grip around the black-oxide-coated, stainless steel handle. The Turismo's blade is similarly compact at just 2.8". A gently curved belly provides ideal cutting power for all your everyday tasks. The Turismo's blade is 8C13MoV stainless steel with an attractive satin finish on the grinds and sanded flats. A cutout near the spine of this modified drop-point blade provides additional weight relief.

The blade locks safely open during use with a sturdy frame lock. The Turismo's deep-carry pocket clip can be reversed left/right in the tip-up position. The custom-like backspacer has small, hexagon-shaped cutouts for a little added interest. The Turismo proves that small knives can deliver big features and big performance.

Features

  • SpeedSafe Assisted Opening - 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.
  • 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.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
  • Deep-carry
