Kershaw Launch 12 Mini Stiletto Automatic Knife (2.5" Stonewash) 7125

  • Stonewashed spear point blade made from CPM 154 steel.
  • Bullseye firing button.
  • Black anodized handle with a carbon fiber inlay.
  • Tip-up pocket clip for secure carry.


With the amazing popularity of the Matt Diskin-designed Launch 8, the Launch 12 was simply inevitable. Much like its bigger brother, this little California-legal automatic knife takes design cues from the stilettos of old. Not only is it a unique-looking little knife, but its tall flat grind and Bayonet-style swedge provide excellent slicing and piercing performance.

The Kershaw Launch Series high-performance, USA-made automatics that punch way above their price point! Shop the whole selection!

Customer Reviews

Kershaw Launch 12 Mini
Scott J. on Feb 26, 2020

I have purchased Launch 12 full size and the mini. The Mini is so cool. It has such a fast action, you will end up playing with it like a kid. Its no toy though. Perfect for doing little jobs at work or around the house. Great box cutter. Super workmanship. Best thing its made in the USA

Love it and the Launch 8
Daniel E. on Feb 22, 2020

If you have the Linos Kydex sheath for your Launch 8, it will fit the Launch 12 if you remove the pocket clip or do like I did, replace the clip with the pocket clip off of the Launch 10. I love the shape of these blades and they sharpen to a shaving edge very easily. Both the 12 and it's big brother launch with authority and being made in the US of A is something very important to this Vietnam Veteran!

Great knife
david l. on Feb 19, 2020

I have the launch 8 and this for the size is every bit as good. The feel, blade sharpness, and button deployment are flawless. I would recommend this launch for someone who wants any of them for a carry or just to collect

Super Sharp - blade and Style
Thomas W. on Feb 12, 2020

This knife was a big surprise in quality and style and is my current EDC. The knife is very slim, easily fits in a dress pants pocket without printing. With it's carbon fiber inlays, this is a good looking tool. The action is swift and direct. I have several older Benchmades that would be jealous of the snap of the mechanism. The blade is super sharp and has made short work of anything I have come across. I would recommend highly.

My first knife
Bradley W. on Feb 11, 2020

It reminds me of my first knife that was given to me-when I was 6 years old it was a little red switch blade given to me by my grandfather that was 57 years ago bought it for the memories wish it was red but a nice little auto brad
