Manufacturer: Kershaw 1980ST
You had to leave your concealed carry firearm in your car because the place you were visiting prohibits firearms. The meeting took longer than expected and now the long walk back to your car is dark and isolated. Needless to say this is not the time to remember you forgot your Kershaw Knife. When you carry a Kershaw Knife you are carrying an exceptionally designed and manufactured knife that you can use for protection and as a tool. Anywhere you are heading, jungle or urban jungle, Kershaw Knives are always ready to make short work out of any task!
Check out the blade grind on this one. You'll notice that it goes all the way down the flipper. Why? Frankly, we just thought it looked cool that way. But of course, good looks aren't the only thing the Burst has to offer. That cool blade grind is on a 3" blade of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel that gives you top wear resistance and strength, plus an ability to take and hold a Kershaw-sharp edge. Then we give this high-performance blade a stonewashed finish.
The slightly "roughed up" look of a stonewashed finish is a perfect compliment to the assertive looks of the Burst. We add even more energy to the Burst with SpeedSafe assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. There's no thumbstud on this one. Just pull back on that flipper with the cool grind and the Burst's blade moves smoothly out of the handle, ready to go to work. That Burst's handle scales are textured glass-filled nylon. Glass fibers are added to this thermoplastic polymer for additional strength.
