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
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.

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.

Holding this knife, you would think it would cost more than $38.95. With the assisted opening, the blade jumps right out with either the flipper or the thumb studs. Blade is shaving sharp. Really like the blade design and the coating on the blade and handles looks great.Feels good in the hand, nice slim design. Okay, maybe the handles are a bit slick, but that's all I might complain about. Would make a great EDC and for under $40, you cant go wrong. Blade is only 8CR13MoV, but for most uses it would be just fine. Besides, if I need a tougher steel, I've got those. For normal everyday use I get the feeling it will last a long time. Locks up good and tight with no play at all. Feels extremely sturdy for a mid size knife. Again, this is a great knife. Thanks Knife Center for your as usual great service.
