5-Stars-Made in the USA.
Gary F.
I've had this knife about one month and used it enough to get a good 'feel' for the durability and quality. Good-looking knife and comes with an extremely sharp edge. It holds it well too. I honed it about 2-3 minutes on 4000 grit just to touch up the edge from running into a steel staple and then stropped it back into razor sharpness in no time. It is lightweight and the blade length is quite adequate for EDC use. The pocket clip is strong and won't slip out on its own. I got this on sale and it is worth every cent. A knife that should serve very well.
Excellent auto!

Kershaw knives made in the USA have been fantastic! I just got this knife in today and it is awesome. I have a few autos and this one looks like it could be my new favorite. Itís plenty sharp and the pocket clip works very well. The action is very good and it feels great in the hand. This is a good value. Itís lightweight and I love the construction. Grab one and you wonít be disappointed.

This knife is flawless. Everything about it rules! Why buy a Benchmade for $200+ when you can get this for $99?!
Great knife

I've had this knife for a few months now and it is great. I don't go anywhere without it.
The Best of the Launches
Seung P.
This is the best of the Launch series. It's got great ergonomics, it's lightweight, and the blade is surprisingly long. The automatic action is snappy, and there is zero blade play.

The futuristic, angular look and feel of this knife remind me of the Zero Tolerance 0055, but this is a much more carryable knife than the ZT. If you live in California, get the Launch 4. If you live in a free state, though, get this one.
Top notch
Chris G.
Great auto knife. Everything about this knife is quality. It feels great and performs as it should. Very happy with the fit and finish. The 154cm blade is very sharp out the box and it carries well.
Excellent modern auto
Austin C.
This is a big knife, not too big, just about right to be honest but it's tipping the scales. The handle has a great amount of purchase for what ever you need to do with it and it feels pretty good in the hand even though it has such an interesting shape.

The deployment is fast, whips right out and locks up every time with ease. The button weight is just right, easy enough to press but wont go off in your pocket due to the recessed location.

The blad is sharp and light, the whole knife is pretty light as well. You wouldn't even knotice it was there if it weren't for the length that occasionally, if i it move to an agle, is noticeable sitting down in your pocket.

The only complaint I have is the handle finish, it feels great however what ever they used too get it that color is chipping of just a tiny bit on one of the sharper edges where it come into contact with my pocket and leg.

The color is actually a bit darker than in the pictures and has an almost lavender hue to it under the right light. I much prefer this to the boring grey I thought I was getting.
Really Impressed
Isaac M.
This is a quality knife. Lightweight, not to mention the finish and the action are flawless. Bladehq, you all have great service. I will definitely be ordering from you all again. Thanks!
Kershaws best to date
Timothy C.
I can't believe how much more I love this one. My Launch 5 was awesome, this one opens really strong and locks solid. The design is top of the line. This is my new EDC, putting my H&K away, this is Bad Ass!
Recommend to everybody
Cotye w.
I realize this knife is not legal in many states but if it's legal in your state and your looking for an automatic knife I highly highly recommend it. It comes pretty sharp awesome design the detent it strong and the ergonomics are great you get a lot better grip than what you would expect. My favorite automatic to date. I can't say anything about edge retention due to I've only had it 2 days but I really do love everything else about it. No negatives at this point. Thanks for another great knife bladehq!
