Blade: It's an upswept drop point with a nice slicing belly. This one 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 a tumbled Bohler M390 primo blade steel. This steel is known throughout the industry as having some of the best edge retention in its class. It will hide the wear and tear of daily cutting plus turn some heads. It is damn sharp and absolutely rockets out of its handle thanks to Kershaw's SpeedSafe Assisted Opening mechanism.

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.
