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

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.

Great Value
Cory H.
Excellent all around except an uneven bevel so I had to reprofile, not too big a deal but for someone new to sharpening it could be infuriating.
Good knife for the price
John M.
I think the price point is perfect for this knife. It's super sharp, spring open is fast and smooth. Good overall knife!
Beautiful knife!!!
Bruce E.
Just got this knife today, and it is awesome. At first I thought it was made of plastic due to its light weight. I guess Iím just used to heavier knives. But this is a solid knife! Solid firing, razor sharp, and beautiful knife!!! I have some higher end autos(Benchmade & Microtech), and this $100 knife stands up. Plus Kershaw uses the CPM-154 as opposed to the 154cm that Benchmade uses. I got my eye on the 7100BW now.
