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!
The Ripcord's patented design provides the strength and stability of a fixed blade knife, yet stores as compactly as a folding knife. The key is Kershaw's Out the Front (OTF) design. With OTF, the blade slides out the front of the handle into a secure, fixed-blade position.
A high-impact Kydex belt sheath doubles as the OTF deployment/blade-locking system. To open the knife, grasp the handle and pull up. As the knife reaches the end of its travel, tilt it slightly forward to disengage the blade-locking stud from the beveled circular recess. In the fixed position, the Ripcord's blade is secure and cannot be retracted without the sheath. To return the knife to the sheath, insert the tip of the knife into the Kydex sheath and lower the blade into the sheath until the beveled circular recess in the knife lines up with the stud. Tilt the knife toward the stud to engage the mechanism and slide the Ripcord into its sheath. The blade clicks securely into place, enabling your to carry the Ripcord tip-up or tip-down.
The Sandvik 14C28N blade offers strength and superior edge retention, while the DLC coating enhances performance and looks good doing it. The Ripcord's handle is lightweight anodized al uminum with Trac-Tec inserts for a secure grip.
