Kershaw's most recent automatic knife offering, the Launch Series, is simply superb. These knives have a compelling design, fast action, high-performance materials, and they're made in the USA!

Each of the Launch models features a stylish and unique integral backspacer pattern where the two pieces of aluminum connect with the USA flag laser-engraved on the back side of the handle. In tandem with the reversible tip-up carry pocket clip, the Launch 1 model is outfitted with a pass-through hole hidden at the base on the handle for lanyard attachment.

This Launch 1 has a BlackWash finished CPM-154 steel blade and blue anodized aluminum handle with black finished hardware, pocket clip, and bulls-eye pattern firing button.

Good knife but larger than expected
Matt C.
Good Kershaw quality. Fast SMOOTH auto action. But it is a really deep blade. Pics don't really convey how deep the blade is. Wouldn't really say this is an EDC. As it is pretty large. Sits comfortably in had tho and lets be honest with a CPM154 blade how can you not like it? Great knife worth the price. Just be aware the blade is deep than it looks.
Superb Auto!!

The Launch series is fantastic and this particular Launch 1 is an exceptional EDC blade!! Gets Razor Sharp, Stays Razor Sharp, IS Razor Sharp!!! Craftsmanship is outstanding — Made in USA!!!

Blade HQ is alwsys awesome! Ordered it on a Friday night and it was in my mail box (in Texas) on the following. Monday afternoon — Now that’s some hypersonic, supersonic, speed of light shipping! THANKS Blade HQ!

This knife is a great value. The CPM154 steel is great for EDC, and Kershaw customer service is amazing. Even though the handle is a little slick, it still looks great.
Great knife!

Ordered it and received it in a very timely manner! Knife is fantastic, blue looks much better in person. Action is very nice, no lock up issues, such as those found in the early models. Super snappy and sharp, for the price it's a steal and I would recommend to anyone who can carry an auto.
