Kershaw Knives
Get a dark tactical look with the Launch 6 automatic knife from Kershaw.

This slim—and ever-so-slightly wicked-looking—knife features premium CPM-154 blade steel. This powdered metallurgy steel offers more uniform distribution of carbides so it takes and holds an excellent edge. It also provides good corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness. Black DLC coating adds non-reflectivity and enhances performance.

Durable anodized aluminum handles lighten the Launch 6's weight and Kershaw machines them to provide a secure grip. This automatic knife opens with a recessed push button. Kershaw made the button level with the flat of the handle as a safety feature that makes it harder for the knives to accidentally deploy. Left-handers can use an index finger instead of the thumb to press the blade-release/lock button. The Launch 6 also has a reversible pocket clip and a pre-drilled lanyard tie-off hole.
  • Push-Button Lock - Found on the Kershaw Folding Saw, It locks the saw blade open during use, then releases with the push of a button.
  • Made In The USA - When you see this on one of our knives, it means the knife was made in our Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Cons: Ease of Opening, Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, None
Reliable after break in - Not bad for the price
Ugg...blade bounce. First opening right out of the box locked up just fine, then the bounce started and continued. I oiled the button internally and short cycled it for about 20 mins, finally broke in and started locking up reliably. There is gritty feel to the button action as it friction slides past the blade knuckle, but this is really only noticeable during the short cycles. During regular full openings the button feels just fine. Pretty sharp right out of the box and overall fit and finish seems really good for a $100 (discounted) knife. This would easily be a five star knife, and I was really hoping for Made in USA to shine, but alas 4 out of 5 for the blade bounce.

Kershaw 7800BKL 6 Auto
Elegant auto but had trouble with the blade bounce. It doesn't open fully all the time. I was very disgusted. I took off the pocket clip and for some odd reason, that did the trick. Now it opens all the time and I didn't really need the pocket clip anyway. It does not have any safety on it so that could be an issue opening in your pocket etc. I like Kershaw knifes but this one may be something I return if any more trouble with bounce.

One of my favorites
I use this knife for every day use. I have a day job and own an acreage with horses. This knife gets regular use and I regularly sharpen it with the Spyderco Tri-angle Sharpmaker. Solid lock up, easy to keep an edge and reliable action make it my new favorite folder. Do not lube the action. Run it dry and let it break in unless you want action failure.
