KS7777: 7777 Bareknuckle Folding Knife
Kershaw Knives
If you already like the Kershaw Natrix but would like it even more if it were built in the USA, your wish is granted.

Like the other knives inspired by the original Zero Tolerance 0777, the Bareknuckle, model 7777, is based on the style of Kershaw's original award-winning design, but this one offers a slimmed down profile and upgraded materials. The blade is Sandvik 14C28N stainless, a blade steel that was originally created through a Kershaw-Sandvik partnership to produce this high-performance steel. Increased nitrogen in the formula enables 14C28N to provide excellent corrosion resistance and the ability to be hardened to 58-60 Rockwell. Sandvik calls 14C28N the overall highest performing knife steel in the world that still maintains the productivity benefit of being fine-blankable.

The Bareknuckle comes with handsome, anodized-aluminum handles in matte gray. And like the popular Knockout, the Bareknuckle features Kershaw's patented Sub-Frame Lock to lighten the in-pocket weight and to ensure safe blade lock up while in use. The blade opens manually with Kershaw's KVT ball-bearing system and a flipper. For an additional touch of style, the blade rotates out of the handle on an oversized pivot. The Bareknuckle comes complete with a reversible, deep-carry pocket clip for convenient carry on the left or right side.
  • 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.
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • 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.
  • Made In The USA - When you see this on one of Kershaw's knives, it means the knife was made in their Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.

Buy the Chinese one
Pros: looks good, solid lock up, decent blade steel, fairly ergonomic handle Cons: uneven grind - edge angle is obtuse near the handle transitioning to acute near the tip - my guess is 50 degs to 30 degs, detent is VERY stiff when closed making the flipper almost useless. Bottom line: save a few bucks and get the near flawless Chinese-made Natrix

Preordered this knife in Sept. and received it 12/19. Upon initial inspection this appeared to be really nice. Especially for a $70 USA made knife with decent materials. The finish was excellent. Handle shape is comfortable and there is just enough room for the pinky with an XL hand size. Blade centering, lockup etc. was very good. initially I could not deploy the blade using the flipper. I have 25 yrs LEO and 25 years carpentry experience so my hands are not soft. I grabbed the blade and opened it manually. The detent was firm, but opened quite smooth. The lockbar was very firm to unlock, but doable as long as you don't sit there and mess with it for any period of time as it can be tuff on the thumb. The problem is flipping it open and it may be in the design. If I am careful and place my fingers below the lockbar and just on the scale, I can give the flipper a VERY strong push, the blade flies open fast, smooth and with firm lockup. If I grab the knife normally and my fingertips touch on the lockbar, I cannot overcome the detent and flip the blade open. Not acceptable in a defense situation. I'm thinking of moving the clip for weak hand (left) carry for when I CCW. I can position my thumb easier off the lockbar and I can flip it with my left index finger. Not ideal, but I really love everything else about this knife If not, it's going back.
