Customer Reviews

Blue Streak
Michael J. on Sep 12, 2020

This thing snaps open, make sure you have a good grip. It is sharp, feels good in the hand. Quality knife made in the USA. Might get an aftermarket deep carry pocket clip, but thats just my preference.

Great Purchase
Aaron J. on Apr 8, 2020

I have had this knife for about a week so far and it is working perfectly. The knife snaps open with a ton of power. I work in a warehouse for my job, and use this knife to cut through cardboard, tape, and plastic. The knife came razor sharp, and is still sharp enough to cut the hairs on my arm. I bought this knife when it was on sale for $80, but even at $100 this knife is well worth the money. Great steel, and also made in the USA! Kershaw also has a warranty, so you can send it to them to get resharpened. Will absolutely be getting another one when I get the money to do so. 10/10

Excellent Knife
Edward D. on Mar 14, 2019

I have wanted a Kershaw Launch for a while now and I was ecstatic when it finally arrived. The action is really smooth and it came out of the box razor sharp. 7/7.

Superb Auto!!
Elias H. on Jan 22, 2018

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!

Clint B. on Jan 5, 2018

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!
Keenan G. on Jan 5, 2018

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.

Good knife but larger than expected
Matt C. on Feb 28, 2018

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.
