AMPLE STYLE & FUNCTION IN A SMALLER POCKETKNIFE

Kershaw and Todd Rexford have teamed up to bring you a smaller pocketknife with plenty of style: the Amplitude 2.5. As you might guess, the Amplitude 2.5 features a 2.5-inch blade. When closed, the knife is a compact 3.5 inches long.

The Amplitude 2.5’s blade is heat treated to Kershaw’s demanding specifications to bring out the very best qualities in the steel. A machine satin finish on the blade and cool, gray titanium carbo-nitride coating on the steel handle give the Amplitude 2.5 a sophisticated look. For easy carry, a left/right reversible pocketclip is included.

This no-nonsense smaller knife offers simple, clean lines, a drop-point blade, and a smooth all-steel handle. So that the Amplitude 2.5 is ready when needed, it can be opened one-handed thanks to SpeedSafe® assisted opening accessed with the handy, built-in flipper.

Easy to carry in pocket, briefcase, or backpack, the Amplitude packs a lot of style into a smaller 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.
  • Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

A little gem
I have always carried a larger folder. I bought the Amplitude about two months ago due to some venues I attend enacting a blade length rule of no more than 2.5". Honestly, even reading the reviews of the Amplitude I didn't expect a lot and only intended on carrying it once in a while. I was wrong! This little folder exceeded my expectations. It has replaced my larger knives because it can do anything they could do that I need in a smaller, lighter package. I now carry it everyday. I use it for any job a blade is needed for - opening packages, trimming, slicing... I even used it to skin and dress squirrels for dinner. It was as sharp at the end as at the beginning. A few swipes on a steel keeps it shaving sharp. I did have to bend the pocket clip out a bit since it was so tight. I would have preferred it not have been made in China, but I have no issues with its quality or performance. Great folder and a bargain at the selling price.

Compact Flipper
I wanted a small flipper that I could use to open and close with one hand. This knife does that well. For the times I need to use the blade for a quick cut, it's in and out of my pocket easily. Its small size lets you pocket carry without using the clip if you prefer. The shape of the grip and the quality of the blade make using this knife a pleasure whether you are opening letters or boxes. It is a very handy tool.

Cons: Handle Feel, Handle Material
nice edc
it is now my go to edc, smaller than my blur, the 8Cr13MoV steel blade stays sharp for mundane tasks like opening boxes, cutting ropes and string, trimming stems of plants, ect. much smaller, lighter, easy to open one handed. Don't like the fact that it isn' t made in America as I thought, but can't complain about the quality. Drop point plain blade is very nice.
