The popular USA Made 1776 Link assisted flipper from Kershaw Knives has been upgraded with a quality Damascus Blade. The pattern of folded steel swirls will vary from blade to blade making each piece truly unique.
The Blade: The blade shape of the Link has been quite popular over the last few years. It is an upswept drop point with a nice slicing belly. It offers a true point for piercing and the every day utility of a drop point. Slicing, dicing, skinning and everything in between. It really is an every man's blade shape...and it looks cool. This one has been upgraded to very popular Damascus steel. This steel has been folded over and over many times to acquire the pattern seen on the finished product. It's often desired for it's edge retention and striking good looks. It is damn sharp and absolutely rockets out of its handle thanks to Kershaw's SpeedSafe Assisted Opening mechanism.
The Handle: Gunmetal Gray anodized aluminum handle scales are smooth and well-contoured to ensure a comfortable grip. They are secured to full length sturdy stainless steel liners with one forming the locking mechanism. It has a 3/4 length ridged black backspacer for support and aiding in your hold on the Link. The back side has an engraved US Flag proudly displayed.
The 1776 Link Damascus from Kershaw comes with a black/tumbled pocket clip for tip up carry that is reversible for lefty's. A generous lanyard hole is a nice touch. Brand new item built in the USA by Kershaw Knives.
