MIX IT UP WITH THE BRAWLER

The Brawler starts with a modified tanto blade—a shape often found in tactical and rescue knives that may be required to punch through tough materials.

The tanto is an ideal shape for these piercing tasks because there is plenty of metal to support the point, making it stronger than many other blade shapes. You’ll notice that the top of the Brawler’s blade has a grind, too. This is called a swedge; it helps narrow the blade, adding to its piercing power. At the same time, the Brawler’s straight belly offers excellent cutting capacity, is perfect for bearing down on a task, and is easy to resharpen.

All this makes the Brawler an excellent utility knife. The Brawler’s handle is just as functional. The angled handle curves into the palm of the user’s hand. Jimping on the back of the blade offers additional traction. With the blade deployed, the flipper doubles as a finger guard and provides additional hand protection during knife use. For fast and easy one-handed opening, the Brawler is equipped with SpeedSafe. Just pull back on the blade protrusion and the SpeedSafe assisted opening system takes over, moving the blade out of the handle, ready for use.

Sturdy glass-filled nylon handle scales, a secure locking liner, and our four-position Quad-Carry pocketclip complete the package.
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 - 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.
  • Liner Lock - Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife’s steel “liner,” the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.
  • Quad-carry - The user may position the pocketclip for tip-up or tip-down, left- or right-handed carry.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Weight, Handle Material
Cons: None
Great carry
I carry 6 different blades with me and this one jumped up the pack to one of my everyday carries. It is great in the summer with shorts doesn't show and is thin enough not to bother you in your pocket. Really great pick up for the price.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Lock Type, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness
Good with a fault
Got it as a general purpose tanto blade, for that it is a solid weight, easy open, practical knife. However it arrived with zero edge, I could not even shave any hair off my arm with it, was highly disappointed with the fact I had to get out the sharpening kit on a brand new knife.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use
Great value and quality
Everyday carry knife, good quality as always and sharp from the box. The only negative if there is one the blade release seems set deeper making it right to unlock the blade in order to close it. Great knife for the price.
