Kershaw Knives
A slim, functional, wicked sharp design from Kershaw and Rick Hinderer.

Rick designed this one to be easy to carry, easy to use, and to feel great in the hand.

This Rick Hinderer design is barracuda sleek and engineered to provide great tip control. The deep contour toward the back of the blade spine provides a place to rest your finger when choking up on the blade for detailed work. The clipped spear-point style blade looks great, slims the blade for excellent piercing capability, and enhances control.

The stainless steel handle is purposely smoothed for an easy pocket carry, but it also features a double finger contour for excellent grip.The Ferrite is SpeedSafe equipped for fast and easy, one-handed opening. Just pull back on the flipper or push outward on the thumb stud. Once the blade is started out of the handle, SpeedSafe takes over and opens the knife with ease.

Gray titanium carbo-nitride coating on both blade and steel handle help give the knife a long, lean look. A frame lock secures the blade during use. The pocket clip can be reversed for either left-handed or right-handed carry. Like many of Rick's custom knives, the Ferrite features a "filler tab" that gives the handle an extra touch of class and adds a finished look to the side of the handle opposite the pocket clip.
  • 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.

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.

Cons: Blade Sharpness, None
Quality far exceeds the price!
One of the most heavy-duty Kershaw knives I've ever picked up. The weight and durability alone is enough to add this to your collection!The blade was fresh, but unfortunately a bit dull out of the box, so I had to spend some time sharpening and edging the blade. Thats the only issue i took a single rating off. The blade of a knife is everything!However, amazing grip for such polished material. The ease of opening is a little sticky out of the package, but swing it around a bit and it quickly turns into a lightning quick flipper. The blade lock is very solid and it takes a coordinated effort to unlock it, which makes a confidently secure edc for small to medium+ tasks. Worth the price!!!!

Bought this knife for my granddaughter because she wanted an edc knife for protection because she is to young for a handgun, She carries it everyday, and loves the spring assist on Kershaw knives. This knife was sharp out of the box and blade center was perfect.
