KS3880: 3880 Thermite
Kershaw Knives
 
TACTICAL AND PRACTICAL

A thermite is a mixture that, when ignited, produces a huge amount of heat. And we think you'll agree, the Thermite is hot.

With tactical styling and practical performance, the Thermite, designed by Rick Hinderer, has a great look and great features. The Thermite offers Rick's no-nonsense functionality, but with enough style that co-workers will look on with a satisfying touch of envy when you take the Thermite out of your pocket.

The 3 1/2-in. stonewashed blade is hollow-ground for excellent slicing capabilities with a flat-ground "spanto" tip for strong piercing. A machined G-10 front scale and a heavily textured backspacer add to the Thermite's good looks. On the practical side, the back handle is stainless steel with a frame lock and lockbar stabilizer. 

For easy opening, the Thermite is SpeedSafe-equipped and can be accessed with the ambidextrous flipper or thumbstud. It comes equipped with Kershaw's Quad-Carry/deep-carry pocketclip.
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.
  • Quad-carry - The user may position the pocketclip for tip-up or tip-down, left- or right-handed carry.

Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
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.
G10 Handles
G10 Handles
Formed in a sheet under high pressure by combining fiberglass and an epoxy resin binder. These handles are lightweight and shaped to ensure a solid grip.

I LOVE THIS KNIFE!
I use the termite for EDC carry and it is just about perfect in that role. It came shaving sharp right out of the box and even came with extra screws to change the ambidextrous pocket clip.as it is an assisted opening knife, I was impressed by how well it fired with the flipper on the back and the thumb studs! It is a fairly large knife but is not so big as to take up too much room in the pocket and is very inconspicuous due to pocket clip allowing it to ride deep in the pocket. It's a new favorite in my EDC gear rotation. AWESOME!
