Kershaw Knives


The little guy's always the toughest. That's certainly true of the Half-Ton. The short, chubby blade works on and on.

A wider blade like the Half-Ton's is designed for easier slicing. In a utility knife, that means everything from slicing open a box to cutting up some apple slices to go with lunch. The Half-Ton's blade is stout and on the shorter side at just 2.5 inches. Nevertheless, this solid, tough knife is perfect for most jobs around the shop or garage. We gave the Half-Ton a high grind to slim the blade, so even though the blade is quite wide, it still moves through whatever you're cutting with ease.

A locking liner secures the blade open when in use and releases easily. Jimping on the top of the handle provides additional purchase for your thumb and an index-finger contour fits the hand securely. To make the Half-Ton even easier to hang onto, Kershaw adds glass-reinforced nylon handles with grippy, non-slip inserts. The handles are extra-sturdy and impact resistant.

And just for grins, Kershaw completes the package with their patented Wrench Clip, the pocket clip shaped like a mini-wrench.

8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.

What I expected
Got what I paid for. This is a $10 knife. Like the size and beefiness of the blade. We'll have to see how the edge holds up.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Weight
great little knife
I was looking for a smaller knife to replace the Gerber folder I've carried for years. This knife weighed just as much as the Gerber but is smaller and thinner. This makes it easy to clip to the waistband of my pants. If you wear a belt over it, it is almost invisible. The blade is very sharp with an excellent finish. The half-ton is easily worth twice the price I paid for it. Great product!
