Kershaw Knives

Designed by RJ Martin, the Scrambler is one classy pocketknife. The drop-point blade is hollow-ground to help it breeze through slicing tasks. A large top swedge enhances the good looks of the Scrambler's blade. 8Cr13MoV blade steel provides strength and good edge retention; titanium carbo-nitride coating provides additional blade protection and gives the knife a unified look as the blade flows into the handle.

The front side of the comfortable handle is textured G-10 with a titanium carbo-nitride-coated bolster. The other side is all stainless steel with a sturdy frame lock. The extended bolster provides additional forefinger protection and ensures the knife fits firmly in your hand during use.

SpeedSafe-equipped, the Scrambler opens quickly and easily with the ambidextrous flipper. A reversible pocket clip lets you carry left- or right-handed.
  • SpeedSafe - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumb stud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Handle Material
Quality and value
This knife was surprisingly better than I imagined it would be for the price. This brute of a pocket folder is a little heavier in the hand than I'm used to (boker trapper), but I'll happily adjust to that for the following reasons. Directly out of the box It is very sharp. It performs admirably on numerous cutting tasks ie cutting card board, small branches opening feed sacks. The scrambler looks menacingly good, opens, locks, and releases better than my Burnley Boker kwaiken that cost me 3x as much. The fit and finish are very aceptable, especially at this price range. Dare I presume (dangerous) that the notch on the frame lock is a conscious effort? to assist the pocket clip, which I smaller than most, rather stiff and unwilling to clip to the pocket of my old worn out work jeans, though on a newer pair of jeans it clips on pretty much ok. I tried to give this knife 4 stars but ultimately have to go with 5. Although I'm not a big fan of the G10 scale on this one, it can be upgraded. It's my new edc. I like it so much I bought two.

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Lock Type
Best EDC for the right price!
This is my favourite Every Day Carry knife! Will not leave the house without it. Everything feels and works just right on the Kershaw Scrambler. My friends are quite impressed too. I find the steel holds its edge quite well. Can't beat the price for the materials and functionality! The only thing I would like to change is I think Kershaw should have added lock like they did on other models i.e. Leeks. I strongly encourage everyone to purchase this knife for everyday use!

Pros: Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Lock Type
A steal at the price!
This knife feels and functions like a much much more expensive knife. Smooth opening and a solid lock up. A bit stiff to release the frame lock but that is likely an attribute of this type of lock. Blade is big enough for most tasks and easy to keep very sharp.
