Kershaw 1870 Knockout Assisted Opener, 3.25 Inch PlainEdge Blade, Textured G10 Handles

This slick, slim profile EDC folder is a Knockout in more ways than one! The Knockout looks great, but the reason it bears this name is because Kershaw has "knocked out" a piece of the G-10 handle and inset a stainless-steel plate to create a frame lock that they're calling a Sub-Frame Lock® You get the lightweight benefits of anodized aluminum handles and the strength of a steel frame lock with integral lockbar stabilization. The Knockout also features SpeedSafe® assisted opening. It's equipped with Kershaw's new deep-carry clip and is drilled for quad-carry: tip-up, tip-down, left- or right-handed. Made in the USA.
