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, 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 Launch 2 model is outfitted with a pass-through hole hidden at the base on the handle for lanyard attachment.

This Launch 2 has a stonewashed CPM-154 steel blade with a slight upper bevel. The black anodized aluminum handle has a catchy bulls-eye ring pattern firing button with a bold red accent.

Kershaw Launch 2
Charles P.
A very beautiful knife . The action is very smooth and not hard kicking like previous reviews state . However unlike any other kershaw that I own , this knife did not come from the factory very sharp . I do not yet know of the steel quality , but if it as good as the sharpening , i will be very disappointed . I believe that to get the edge that I wish , i will probably have to change the bevel angle . ****Edit , this steel on this knife is very nice , though hard to put a razor edge on it . Buttery smooth action .
Favorite in the launch lineup

I own multiple Keyshaws and a couple in the launch series. This is my favorite by far. Fast action, sharp steel, beautiful finish. Only thing I wasn’t excited about is the pocket clip.
Almost too beautiful to use...
Chris C.
The blade came razor sharp and kicks like a mule. Love the blade and its shape, but the handles scratch very easily and can be scuffed much like DLC coated blade. I rested my phone on top of the blade for one night with little to no movement, but had some minor, yet noticeable scratches on the handle scales. The steel, despite being decent, is inferior to some other blade steels I've had the privilege to use.
Great knife

This is my favorite kershaw I own and my main edc.
All around Amazing!!!
peter d.
The best auto knife I've owned. Very light weight with fantastic blade and the metal is the best and is extremely sharp. I was a little concerned with the handle being metal but the coating is really nice that's smooth but still gives you a great grip. The automatic is very snappy!!! Plus there is no play in the blade when it's out which is a big concern on auto knifes. A++++
This knife is a great value!
Jon B.
The steel of the blade is superb, and the knife mechanism is positive. This knife fires hard and lock into place without a hitch.

Buying an auto knife of this caliber is easy, because the quality is excellent and the price isn't prohibitive. It's easy to carry a knife this good that will "work like a soul inspired" yet won't "break the bank." This is the kind of knife that someone can buy just once, but carry for a lifetime.

It reminds me of the old Alka-Seltzer ad that said, "Try it, you'll like it!" I'm certainly glad I bought it, because it's a winner!
WoW this things a Kick!
Ian C.
Very nice Auto, way to go Kershaw!. The only thing that concerns me about this knife is that it might unintentionally fire or close during use due to the lack of a trigger lock switch. Otherwise this knife is better than expected by far. It is stylish and sophisticated but powerful and rugged. Feels like a quality build.
I love it

I own a dozen or more Kershaw knifes, it's great light weight, great feel, great quality. Instantly became a favorite carry.
Great fun

The launch 2 is fantastic. It is more of a gentlemens knife than the heavy duty rogue. It's slim profile is great for edc. Like all Kershaw Autos it is razor sharp and kicks like a mule. My buddy picked mine up and opened it and it shot right out of his hand and stuck in his leg. Use caution and check your local laws.
Just As awesome as the Breakout!
Kevin L.
If you have a Kershaw Breakout you know what I am talking about. So hold on to it! This Launch 2 kicks open and hard just like the Breakout. Beautiful machining and design to. Alot of bang for your buck. I already have the Launch 1 and looking forward to getting the Launch 3. What a great new series of autos from Kershaw!
