Kershaw, founded in 1974, designs and manufactures tools and knives for the most discriminating user. They combine high quality components and detailed intensive craftsmanship to produce knives and tools that are ruggedly dependable and reliable. If you are looking for a quality bladed tool or weapon Kershaw should be on your short list of manufacturers to explore.
The Vapor has gone to the dark side as the Black Vapor III.
Black oxide coating on both handle and blade give this Vapor a handsome, non-reflective look-and enhances corrosion resistance. And in case you hadn't guessed, we named this knife the "Vapor" because the holes drilled in the handle give the knives an airy look and lighten the weight of the knife in your pocket.
The Vapor's modern, "not your father's pocketknife" design is matched by its amazingly silky smooth manual opening. Thanks to Kershaw's meticulous manufacturing process and our precision fit-and-finish standards, the blade glides out smoothly and locks into place with a satisfying "snick." The drop-point blade provides tip strength and cutting versatility. The 8Cr13MoV blade steel offers excellent hardness and wear resistance. And we heat treat the steel to bring out its highest performance characteristics.
