The Les George designed Kershaw Valmara is a compact, tank-of-a-knife ready to meet your pocket. Thicker, yet easy to carry this one was named for an Italian bounding fragmentation landmine. Nice deep carry pocket clip and rugged good looks makes this knife a great EDC.
The Blade:Drop point with a slight recurve creates a good all around edge with excellent slicing capability. A top swedge helps to thin the blade and aids the overall aggressive appearance. From the swedge the blade rises up to form a notched ramp that create a perfect place to rest a thumb. Broken-in stonewash finished blade comes super sharp and is easy to sharpen.
The Handle: Textured black GFN handle scales are secured to a full length stainless liners and hook up via a black spacer. The ergonomics, reversible deep carry clip and large lanyard hole jump out immediately. The handle is comfortable and has that classic Kershaw "look". The Valmara would be a great size for small to medium sized hands.
