Kershaw 1086 Strobe Folder

Knife users who love the look of Kershaw's Diskin Hunter--but would love it even more in a folding knife--now have their wish. The Kershaw Strobe knife takes the sweeping lines of the Diskin Hunter and turns them into a smaller, folding pocketknife. The clip-point blade offers a deep belly and opens with a handy flipper.

Thanks to the Strobe's KVT ball-bearing opening system, the blade opens smoothly and easily; just pull back on the flipper. A washer with caged ball bearings surrounds the pivot joint and the bearings rotate as the blade moves out of the handle to ensure quick, one-handed opening. A frame lock provides secure lockup.

The blade is heat treated to Kershaw's demanding specifications to bring out the best qualities in the steel, then stonewashed. The slim handle is characteristic of a Diskin knife and fits the hand securely. K-Texture™ handle overlays in glass-filled nylon provide additional grip. The pocketclip is reversible for left/right-handed carry. It's a deep-carry pocketclip so that it rides comfortably and discreetly down in the pocket.
