There is one tool that almost all professionals agree is an essential item to keep on your person: a quality Blade. Regardless if you are heading out for a weekend camping trip with the family, or working in an office that does not allow Concealed Carry, the right blade can make a world of difference. Enter Kershaw Knives… Kershaw Knives can handle everything from simply opening boxes to fending off a Grizzly bear; from cutting down brush for a shelter to intricate carvings; from field dressing your game to sitting in your collection case. Pick up a Kershaw Knife and pick up a tool for life.
When we first introduced the SpeedSafe-equipped Blackout, it made a big impression on the knife industry. In fact, it was selected as a Blade Magazine Best Buy at the Blade Show, one of our industry's important trade shows.
Since its introduction the Blackout has gained fans in all walks of life-from police officers who won't go on patrol without it, to outdoors enthusiasts who consider it their go-to knife, to guys who just like to EDC a good-sized knife.
The Blackout's blade is a classic drop-point, perfect for handling a wide range of tasks. The blade steel is high-performance 14C28N. Developed in a partnership between Kershaw and Sandvik Steel, this stainless steel offers excellent corrosion resistance, hardness, and edge retention. To enhance that performance even more, we added a black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) scratch-resistant blade coating.
