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. The reversible tip-up carry pocket clip accommodates right and left-hand carry.

This Launch 3 has a black DLC coated CPM-154 steel blade with a slight upper bevel. The purple anodized aluminum handle has a black finished pocket clip, hardware, and bulls-eye ring pattern firing button.

Almost perfect
Trevor M.
Aesthetics of this knife are beautiful, the fit and finish are flawless, the lock up is firm with no movement, pocket clip allows for a deep carry, the blade came hair-popping sharp, the deployment is lightning fast, but.... the button is pretty damn small in overall size and in the amount it protrudes from the handle. Iím sure this was purposefully done to keep the overall slim sleek aesthetic and to prevent accidental deployment, but itís actually a speakable draw back to this knife in my opinion. About 1/4 of the time I go to deploy the blade I donít get enough purchase or press hard enough or whatever it is and have to let off the button and press it again to get the blade to come out. To release the mechanism you have to depress the button all the way flush with the grip if not a bit further past, and with the small size of the button and small raised fencing around it I can be semi annoying. Iím sure after time getting used to the knife and breaking it in it wonít be a big deal but a slightly larger button on this knife would have made it perfect.
Best kershaw I own!

The auto action is super fast and has quite a bit of kick when you deploy it! The steel is sharp, the dlc coating is perfect, and the ergonomics are very comfortable. This knife is super lightweight and the clip is tight so you wonít lose it! Highly recommend picking up this Kershaw!
