Brand new, direct from Kershaw Knives.
Blade: The Wharncliffe-eque modified drop point sports a razor sharp flat ground cutting edge and fine piercing point. SpeedSafe assist ensures fast, positive deployment via the index flipper or dual thumb studs. American CPM-154 provides enhanced performance in the rugged and non-reflective Blackwash finish.
Handle: Solid black stainless-steel liners support the satin finished raw copper handle scales. Copper will develop a unique patina over time and provides a reassuring heft in the hand. The slim, balanced design is easy to carry while offering a comfortable grip for an ergonomic feel. One liner forms the liner lock mechanism which is smooth, solid, and secure in use. A tip-slide lock offers added safety against unintentional deployment during extended carry.
Carries via a right hand stainless steel pocket clip.
CPM-154: A particle metallurgy (PM) version of Crucible 154CM that benefits from the refinement in the PM process. A great all-around blade steel, CPM-154 has D2 level edge retention, AEB-L level corrosion resistance and comparable toughness to other PM stainless steels with ease of sharpening/finishing.
