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.
Sure, the Knockout offers knockout-good looks. But look beyond its awesome exterior to see what's really special.
The Knockout features Kershaw's Sub-Frame Lock. What that means is that we've "knocked out" a piece of the machined aluminum frame and attached a stainless-steel plate in its place. It's this steel plate that moves behind the knife blade to lock it open safely and very securely. Yet because only part of the knife handle or frame is steel, the Knockout can maintain its fighting weight and still provide a strong frame lock. You get a knife that's big, yet lightweight enough to carry every day.
Then there's the blade itself. It's a modified drop point in high-performance Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel with a stonewashed finish. It offers excellent corrosion resistance and hardenability. The finish provides extra protection against rust, too. The Knockout is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening for smooth and easy one-handed opening. Pull back on the built-in flipper or push on the thumbstud and the blade moves out of the handle quickly and easily.
