This thing has been a great workhorse for me. I am able to carry it in my back pocket right next to my wallet since it is so slim. It is long enough to sit at the same depth as my wallet and even though I am sitting on it, I forget it is there.

The blade shoots out hard and fast, so you really have to be prepared for it or it will fly out of your hand if you are not ready. It always locks up perfectly, and the blade sits right in the middle when closed.

The only time I have had any semblance of an issue with this knife was when I was using it to gouge out a hole into some tough plastic, and my thumb moved just a little bit and pushed the button down and the blade almost closed on my fingers until I was able to pull away. Again, the only reason this happened is because of user error, and it will always get the job done for you.

Can't recommend this thing enough for someone that has larger hands!
Super lightweight

Received this today and was blown away at how light this thing is. No blade play, a smooth deployment and perfectly centered. Canít find a single thing to complain about on this knife. This is my first Kershaw and I must say Iím impressed.

The Kershaw Launch 7 is a great EDC, a snappy and ergonomic knife. It is lightweight for the size of the blade, and feels comfortable in hand. Way to go Kershaw!

First off, the action on this blade is smooth. It flies open without a hitch. I love the 154cm, it holds an amazing edge. This is a big blade in a lot of people's opinion but to me I don't like carrying folding knives with blades smaller that the blade on this knife. To me it is the perfect size. My only regret about buying this knife is I gave mine to my dad because father's day snuck up on me.
This is the real launch.

This particular version 7 is the best. It fires hard and locks every time. I have the 1,2,3,6 and now this 7. It's on a higher level. Ergo and fit/finish are worth twice the price of admission. Powdered Steel auto for $100.
Great Purchase

This was my first purchase over $50. If you dont want to spend much over $100 the launch family is the PERFECT choice for quality and bang for your buck. Firstly the blade.... its a big one, moreso a LONG blade, especially for an auto. It fires smoothly and surprisingly snappy for its size. Man it just looks fabulous when opened. Some people dont like the modern look of the handle... its thinner than many of the launch family... but the indent for the finger makes it fit perfectly in the hand. This makes the whole knife incredibly functional and comfy to use.
CPM154 Is a great all round steel.... keeps a decent edge and tough enough for EDC. Ive used this knife for about 6 months and its seen plenty of work.... only had to touch up sharpen the blade once... its pretty easy to sharpen with a medium grit (I use steel with my sharpening system to smooth off the rough).
The launch series are some of the very best knives you can pick up for around $100. Theyre build well in the USA (no play in my knife anywhere), solid performers, and rival some knives costing 2x more. The launch 7 may not appeal to everyone with its futuristic look.... but give it a try first, it really is a great great choice...... with 31 states now allowing autos without restrictions, the future looks bright for the Kershaw Launch series
Another win for kershaw

I wasnít crazy about the design at first, the 5 is my favorite, but the action and functionality of the 7 are impeccable. Great knife.

Should also note that the gray has a purple hue to it, which I love, but some may not.

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 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

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

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!
