The Kershaw Collateral is a continuation of the SLT (Spring-Loaded Tab) Hidden Flipper technology designed by Gus Cecchini of GTC Knives and first seen in production in the Zero Tolerance 0055. Combined with SpeedSafe Assisted Opening, the SLT Hidden Flipper allows for quick one-handed deployment while maintaining the sleek modern lines of the Collateral. 

Brand new directly from Kershaw Knives.

The Blade: Modified sheepsfoot style with slightly upswept plain edge composed of quality 8Cr13MoV stainless steel. A handsome satin finish with horizontally sanded flats add to the aesthetic of this futuristic gentleman's flipper. Blade locks solidly into place via a frame lock mechanism.

The Handle: Contoured and stylish, the handle has been composed of stainless steel and finished with a carbo-nitiride coating. A carbon fiber insert complements the front side of the handle while a unique cutout attracts your eye to the black backspacer. A frame lock graces the backside of the frame offering secure and relaible lock-up and one-hand disengagement. 

8Cr13MoV: Similar to Japanese AUS-8, 8Cr13MoV is a low carbon, high chromium stainless steel with an excellent balance of toughness and strength. It offers good corrosion resistance and is capable of acquiring a razor sharp edge. Edge holding is significantly lower than S30V but close to 440C. Sharpening should be a breeze.
