This Kershaw Launch 1 has a BlackWash finished CPM-154 steel blade and orange anodized aluminum handle.

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

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!

Bought this knife when HQ had it on sale for a great price! Wasn't sure about the orange aluminum handle, but it's a great fit with the stonewashed black blade! CPM-154 came razor sharp from the box, and stays sharp. Nice snap to the opening. Very solid blade!!!

This just became my favorite Kershaw. It pops open with a satisfying click, feels solid in the hand and I even like the black stonewash blade which is something ordinarily I'm not much into. The orange is the perfect shade of orange, and the little etched flag is icing on the cake.
