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. 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.
  • 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.

Pros: Handle Feel, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use
The detent on this copy (sounds common) is to strong making this knife hard to open. After disassembly lubrication, and some break-in it's better.The flaw is the amount of room to place your fingers without contacting the sub-frame lock is very small. Yes when playing with the knife I get the grip down, but I would hate to be in high stress situation and try to open this thing.The flipper could maybe tweaked a bit allow easier opening.Looks beautiful at a good price

Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: Blade Material, None
Fit and Feel of a more expensive knife
This is one great knife! The only caveat is to not touch the subframe lock to make opening easy. I would like to see this knife with a steel blade upgrade. This is a discount ZT! Congrats to Kershaw for making a terrific knife!

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Weight, Blade Material, Lock Type
Cons: None
My bare knuckle is flawless in fit and finish. Solid lock up. Blade centered. Smooth action. Yes the detent is a little stronger than some, but I have no problem operating the knife one handed. I collect ZT, Spyderco, and Benchmade. The quality of this knife is almost there. For the price it's an excellent value. Sandvick isn't a super steel, but it doesn't require a diamond sharpener either. Would love to see a S35V version down the road. For me, this design and execution is a winner. If Kershaw would make all their knives in the USA and to this standard of quality, I'd own a lot more.
