If the Kershaw Natrix looks familiar you're not experiencing deja-vu, it's based on the popular Zero Tolerance 0770. Kershaw wanted to bring this coveted design to a wider audience with an affordable model designed for everyday carry and use. It has a chamfered handle to fit perfectly in the hand. A custom-designed deep-carry pocket clip finishes off the ZT inspired design.

Being a sucker for the patina, this is the second copper folder I bought. Pros: the copper is well done - thin and milled a bit so as not to be just a heavy door stop, love the fuller and other lines on this blade and handle, amazing blade-to-handle size ratio Cons: bloody hard detent at the outset makes for a painful break-in (hint: place a drop of KPL in the detent hole - it is exposed near the pivot as the knife opens up) For such a thin knife, it is very substantial in the hand. Mine came perfectly centered and smooth. This is a nice EDC to pair with the Olight copper.
I really want to like this knife, but I just don't. The action is not good. It feels like how Dorothy wiggling the tin man's arm for the first time sounds. I read the detent ball is a softer metal than the D2 blade and will become garbage. The flipper tab couldn't be much worse. It's painful. The ergonomics are nothing to get excited about. The pocket clip is kind of silly. It's made in China. There are few redeeming qualities for this knife. The more I thought about this review, the more stars i removed. Sorry there are many better Kershaws and there are many many better knives for under $75. And if you want this mostly for copper like I did, try again like I will have to.
Ck reviews on Amazon. Detent is too strong.
