Kershaw Knives
 
The Thistle offers an extra-wide blade, an ergonomic handle that’s curved to fit the contours of the hand perfectly, and our push-button lock release.

The Thistle’s big, drop-point blade provides excellent slicing capabilities as well as handling a wide variety of cutting tasks, making it the perfect work or every day carrying knife. The quality stainless steel blade offers good edge-holding capabilities and strength. A purpose-roughened, stonewashed finish hides scratches.

The curved handle provides cutting leverage as well as offering an extremely comfortable grip on the knife. To further enhance grip, the Thistle’s handle is embossed with Kershaw’s exclusive K-Texture™. K-Texture provides additional grip traction for confident cutting in a variety of environmental conditions.

On the side of that handle, is the Thistle’s push-button lock release. It makes it easier than ever to release the Thistle’s secure liner lock and close the knife. Just push the button. The liner lock is released and the user can fold the blade closed while keeping fingers out of the way of the closing blade.

The Thistle is a manual opening knife and may be opened with the handy thumbstud. For convenient pocket carry, the Thistle also has a reversible (left/right) pocketclip.
Features
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • 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.
  • Push-Button Lock - Found on the Kershaw Folding Saw, it locks the blade open during use, then releases with the push of a button for storage.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Weight, Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
Terrible Lock Placement
If you wish to use this knife be very careful. If you are trying to open something difficult, you may accidentally press the button and have the knife close on your hand, which is what happened to me. A couple stitches later I still enjoy the general feel and shape of the blade, but I would not recommend buying this blade to anyone who cares about keeping their fingers.

Very satisfied.
I have always carried a folding knife of one type or another and find a use for one most every day, for one task or another. The Kershaw Thistle in the latest in a line of Kershaw I have purchased and have found all of them to be well built, durable and comfortable in the hand.
