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. If you prefer a little serration with your blade, this Serrated Blackout is an excellent choice.
