Description

Description

With the Bareknuckle, Kershaw wanted to revive the popular ZT 0777 design with a sturdy U.S. build and a slimmed down profile. It offers upgraded blade made from Sandvik 14C28N steel for a hard blade with excellent corrosion resistance. Matte gray anodized aluminum handle scales provide a sleek, sophisticated look and employ the patented sub-frame lock for secure blade lock up. An oversized pivot and a stainless steel deep-carry pocket clip complete the stellar 7777 design.

Features:
  • Sub-Frame lock bar provides solid blade lock up and a lightweight build.
  • KVT ball bearing pivot provides smooth, rapid blade deployment with the aid of a flipper opener.
  • Deep-carry pocket clip is reversible for right or left hand tip up carry.

Take your fingers off the lock bar when opening it, the action is fine.
One of the best kershaws I own!

The reason I give it 4 stars is because overuse of loctite. But other than that its an excellent knife.
What happened?

The detent on mine was also extremely stiff. Call me a wuss but it shouldn’t be difficult when we know that kai is capable of producing sublime detents. Anyway the blade was also dull out of box unlike most of my kershaws so that was a let down. Action was stiff due to an over tightened pivot. But most disappointing of all is the marriage of too much loctite with the “captured” pivot that actually just spins freely. After a Herculean effort I was able to disassemble it and the action is getting more manageable but still requires technique and dexterity. I bought this as a gift so I was not impressed with its pathetic condition and user unfriendly action. But if you’re into knives you’ll still love its design and probably be able to overlook any setbacks yours might have.
Near flawless

Never been a kershaw fan for the most part, but if they keep putting out quality like this I'll keep buying them. Excellent fit and finish. Feels great in hand. Looks stunning. Well done kershaw.
If I can't open it it's basically useless.

I purchased two of these knives as gifts despite the 1 star review. I am strongly considering returning as I have given the knife to multiple people to open and the detent is so strong ive been asked if there was a locking mechanism. On paper price, materials, and design appear to knock it out of the park. However, deploying this knife is such a struggle that I brings literal pain. For me it's a deal breaker.
Best yet! No competition now! A+

This is by far the best Kershaw design I have ever seen, felt, and or owned. Fit & finish 100%. Simple easy deployment & closure. Excellent build materials! Finally a knife that made it to my top EDC collection. Highly recommend, USA made, clearly an achievement to be reckoned with. I'm a quality inspector in a top surgical field, and this knife is...flawless. Need more!!!!!!!
1 star won't stand dude!

I also had to buy this knife elsewhere due to demand however I could not let a 1 star review stand, this knife has a great action, carries thin , good materials...detent is perfect! Kershaw hit a grand slam!
Awesome Knife

So I ordered this from SMKW because after I got the email that this was in stock, by the time I got to here it was already sold out.

Detent is very strong, it is breaking in nicely so far. This thing feels like its a quality knife, not like my other Kershaws that feel all plasticy. Definitely cuts great, as it came razor sharp. I love the keep carry clip, though this too is very stiff and can take a bit extra to get it into my pocket.

The flipper tab is average size, compared to all my other flipper knives. Action is great even after initial break-in which most knives have.

I am loving this aesthetics, you could set this out next to my ZT's and it would fit right in.

Overall a great knife especially at this price point.
Love this knife!

I bought the Copper Natrix and my son liked it so much I gave it to him. I wanted a larger version anyways. Right out of the box this knife was sharp as heck! I’ll admit that it was a little stiff to start, but a few evenings of flipping set it straight. It functions flawlessly, and the made in America flag makes me beam with pride. The only thing I really didn’t like was the absence of a lanyard hole, but you can attach the lanyard to the clip like I do on my SOG Aegis. I own some really incred knives made by Microtech and Pro Tech, and even some upper end Kershaw–Sandvik, but his is my new EDC. For a midrange to lower priced knife, this one shines for me perfectly.
Great Knife... (assuming your fingers aren’t made of Kleenex like the 1 star reviewer)

Excellent blade, ergonomics, balance and action. Stellar fit and finish for a sub $100 knife. It does have a stiff detent, but as long as you don’t put pressure on the lockbar it will deploy reliably and quickly. If the detent continues to traumatize your delicate appendages, might I suggest buying yourself a Kizer Theta and, instead of sending the Bareknuckle back to Kershaw, consider gifting it to someone with more resilient hands.
Untapped potential.

Pros:
Good Ergonomics. Lightweight. 14c28n steel. WAS perfectly centered.

Cons:
Blade steel isnt marked on the blade(not sure why they arent advertising the upgraded steel when they advertise 8cr13mov on most of the cheaper Kershaws). Like other reviewers, mine has a ridiculously strong detent, granted it is a sub-FRAME lock, so you have to be careful not to put pressure on the sub-frame lock when opening it, which is a bit difficult as the knife isnt very wide, but even so the detent is very strong, and the awkward position of the flipper tab(very top of the handle) make it that much more of a challenge, only an issue because of the strong detent though, not unusable but not enjoyable to open. Tried taking it apart to clean and lubricate but like cheaper Kershaws, its not meant to be taken apart, srews had strong white thread locker on them, sheared off the tip of my T6 bit trying to get the final screw off(figures) so put the other screws back in and just oiled it. After failed disassembly couldnt get it perfectly centered again without bearings not touching the blade.
Good knife

Stiff detent, didn't hurt my finger like that poor other guy. Well done for USA made at $70
