Kershaw Knockout Assisted Opening Knife OD Green (3.25" Damascus) 1870OLDAM


  • Damascus steel drop point blade.
  • Flipper tab and thumb studs for SpeedSafe assisted opening.
  • OD green aluminum handle.
  • Secure sub-frame lock.
  • Four-way reversible pocket clip.


It's a Knockout in more ways than one. The Kershaw Knockout looks great, but the reason it bears this name is that a piece of the lightweight aluminum handle has been "knocked out" and inset with a stainless-steel plate to create a frame lock called the Sub-Frame Lock. You get the lightweight benefits of aluminum handles and the strength of a steel frame lock with integral lockbar stabilization. This Kershaw folder also features SpeedSafe assisted opening. It's equipped with the new deep-carry clip and is drilled for quad-carry: tip-up, tip-down, left- or right-handed.

A Knockout of a Knockout
Curtis F. on Sep 14, 2019

Sorry about that, Ive been watching too much Nick Shabazz...this is my 5th Kershaw Ive purchased from the good folks at Blade HQ, and its a gem. This version has no thumb stud and doesn't need one..... some have mentioned that the Damascus pattern isn't very prominent, but mine came looking very nice wavy....of course its got the great speed safe assist.And the spring strength is'nt so strong that it makes one hand closing difficult..I like that very much, no hot spots in the hand. It comes with a black deep carry pocket clip that keeps the knife hidden..The Knockout came out of the box paper cutting sharp, and quickly to my the shape of the handle and unique from all the Hinderer style knives...The Bareknuckle or the Skyline will be my next acquisition. but for now this knife is.....ah Knockout..sorry.
