Get great style and great function in a value-priced knife with the new Kershaw Brawler. In addition to amazing looks, the Brawler offers assisted opening, easily accessed using the built-in flipper or convenient thumbstud. The blade is a modified tanto style with an extra-thick blade tip for robust piercing capabilities. For strength and reduced weight, the handles are injection-molded, glass-filled nylon. A solid locking liner secures the blade. The Kershaw Brawler is drilled for quad-carry: tip-up, tip-down, left-handed or right-handed.
I've had mine for nearly 10 years at this point. Used and abused in the automotive industry day in and out. It just doesn't leave my side. Could not speak more highly of an inexpensive folder. Many in my collection try to figure nd their way into my work life, but this out paces them again and again. Very snappy and has a nice deep cary. A bit wide if you like to hang other tools into your pocket at the same time. I replaced the assist spring about 4 years back, easy to open, even after years of grit getting into the frame. One of my all time favorites. Worth every penny.
This is a good tactical folder.... Deploys fast and locks up tight.... It has slain many a box for me... Feels good in the hand.
Buddy has had it for a long time and it’s been through some crap and works amazingly, nothing ever broken, it opens easily, feels good in the hand too
Solid, all-around knife, especially for the money. it fits nicely in my average-sized hand. This one is easy to stash in my pocket when I go on a hike. The flipper comes around to form a nice little guard to keep your hand from slipping into the blade. The handle is shaped in such a way that it feels good in hand. It can also be held in a solid reverse grip in which you place your thumb on the back end of the handle. Only two complaints - my thumb studs are redundant as they can't open the knife; only the flipper can. And....the flipper is small, rather pointed, and requires concentrated force to actually flip (or engage). This would be perfect for the size and price if only I could engage the knife with less discomfort. And if i'm sweating, which I often am, it's that much tougher to do. Hard to beat that price though. Really. If you're looking for a small knife that you can throw in your pocket to add some confidence while you're out and about, this might work for you.
The tanto blade isn’t very versatile, and mine didn’t come as sharp as I would expect. The glass-filled nylon handle feels quite good in your hand, though.
