KS7007: 7007 Natrix Folding Knife
Kershaw Knives
 
The Kershaw Natrix is based on brother brand Zero Tolerance’s 0770, which itself was inspired by the award-winning ZT 0777.

Kershaw’s Natrix features a drop-point blade of 8Cr13MoV that offers solid performance with good edge-holding and easy resharpening. The stonewashed blade finish looks good and even helps hide use scratches. Accessed with the built-in flipper, SpeedSafe assisted opening makes it easy to open the Natrix one-handed so it’s always ready when you need it. The handle is lightweight G-10, 3D-machined and chamfered to fit comfortably in the hand. An oversized pivot provides an attention-grabbing detail on the front of the knife, while Kershaw's patented Sub-Frame Lock secures the blade and provides a dramatic, contrasting line on the back.

The Sub-Frame Lock design also enables Kershaw to lighten the weight of the Natrix, so that you get a big, useful blade in a knife that still weighs in at a mere 2.9 ounces. A decorative aluminum backspacer lightens the load even further and adds another embellishment. Finally, a custom-designed deep-carry pocket clip echoes the lines of a special recess machined into the handle to complete this good-looking knife.
Features
  • Flipper: May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The “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.
  • 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.
  • Sub-Frame Lock: One side of a lightweight handle, or frame, is fitted with a steel plate integral to the frame; it is the part of the frame that moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. Sub-Frame Lock knives can be larger and lighter knife yet with an extremely secure lock.
  • Reversible: Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Terrific EDC for the price
I own the knife after which the Natrix was patterned: the Zero Tolerance 770. The Natrix blade is the same shape as the 770 (although the Natrix adds a large blood groove), the ergonomcs are quite similar, the pivot fastener is of the same decor, etc. It's fair to call this kind of a poor man's 770.That being said, it's a very, very good iteration of the design at an amazing price. Yes, it has lesser steel, but the 8Cr13MoV is perfectly acceptable for an EDC. It holds an edge decently, is reasonably corrosion-resistant, and is easy to sharpen (to a wicked, hair-popping edge, I might add). I wouldn't use it as a hard-use shop knife, but it's fine for the usual EDC duty: opening packages, cutting through bubble pack, cutting rope or string, and so on. In addition, there's enough blade and a secure enough grip so that of necessary, this knife world be adorable for tactical use.Blade centering is decent; it's maybe 10% of from center when the knife is closed, but works perfectly and deploys just the way it should. The Speedsafe opening system works equally as well as my ZT0770. The scales offer a decent grip. The lock is interesting; it's a frame lock, but only uses a part of the frame, not the whole thing. You can see it clearly in one of the views offered on the Knifecenter site. This makes the knife a LOT lighter than if the whole back side was made of metal, as are most frame lockers. It also looks a lot better this way, because the back had a lot of the same material as the front (presentation) side. The lock engages a good 50% of the blade width upon locking. Nice. It's easy to disengage without turning your thumb raw, but not TOO easy. I love the clip on this knife. It's deep carry and unobtrusive. The clip comes set for right-hand/tip-up carry,.but can be switched to left-hand/tip-up.For the size of this knife (fits my XL hands comfortably), it is surprisingly lightweight. You don't even feel it in your pocket; you could pocket carry this without the clip.The knife came nice and sharp as with most Kershaws, but I took it up a couple of notches. It takes a wickedly sharp edge relatively easily.Highly recommended at this price point. I'll probably buy another in a different size and/or dress!

Nice EDC for the money
When I buy a knife I ask myself, what do I expect from this knife for the money I'm paying. Thus, when I judge a knife I consider the balance between the fit, function and design of the knife in relation to what I paid for it. The Natrix is a nice knife for under $40. First, it's extremely light, virtually un-noticeable in the pocket. The assisted action is crisp and smooth. The blade was perfectly centered and the frame lock was solid and secure. I gave the blade the "play" test and did not find any play up/down or side/side with reasonable pressure. My only complaints, if you call them that, the blade could have been a touch sharper out of the box, but a couple strokes on my pocket ceramic sharpener fixed that. Also, the pocket clip is a little small, but it is tight and allows for a deep pocket carry. The handle has a light texture which won't tear up the pocket or the hand and also is big enough for larger hands. Overall, you'd be hard pressed to do much better for under $40.
