Description

Description

Kershaw's 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!

The Launch 4 knife has a California-legal blade and ridiculously fast action. Its symmetry in design, both the 6061-T6 aluminum handle and spear point blade, adds distinction. Following the tradition of its predecessors, the Launch 4 has a bulls-eye pattern red firing button and a tip-up carry pocket clip. This automatic knife is a pint-sized performer!

Now this glorified box cutter is definitely well made. For it being an auto the blade play is practically nonexistent. Its ridiculously snappy. I've tried to slow it down, believe me you can't it just throws out full force as soon as you let it go. It is fun to play with without a doubt. However the edge out the box was trash and it is a bit thick behind the edge so it's not a fun time sharpening. But seeing as you're only going to get through tape with the thing it's not a dealbreaker. You're buying novelty more then anything to be honest I don't think it's worth the price but if you like knives it is. If you compare it in size it's a bit smaller then a disposable lighter.
size exactly as needed, for any pocket

LOVE IT. JUST GOT IT TODAY. never ever buy autos, because my use of knives is very utility. but I ordered a small leather pouch for this one with a pen holder attached to keep it from not being scratched up.Although the pocket clip is robust and very nice. Don't listen to the 'BS', this is a great EDC knife, for when I'm not needing my Spyderco rescue/emergency knife, and Mora Eldris (moded with a G-CLIP for belt carry that is my work EDC. This little USA Kershaw is perfect for off hours, doctors office visit, out on the town, stuff.
Best fidget auto, but not best edc

I love playing with this thing. It's snappy, well built, and could stab through a car door. Only problem is that the grind on it is too obtuse to make any precision cuts. If you are planning on removing carpet with this thing, go for it, but box opening/letter opening is not its forte. And any layman putting a sharper edge on this thing will only discover they've ruined the DLC coating. Don't expect the best blade, but expect a great gimmick/gift.
A nice little commie fornia knife

Knife was a lot smaller then I thought. I'm so glad I don't live in California. This is the smallest auto you can have there. Pure stupidity. As far as blade hq, .......awsome as always! I have purchased over 15 knives from bhq and i am always satisfied with the shipping and the service. Thank you blade hq I'll be back for the 16th knife.
Amazing EDC for everyone

I love this knife so much and am happy to tell you that this will be one of the best $70-$80 you will ever spend. The blade play is practically nonexistent. This is a knife that will last you years and I highly recommend it.
Exceeded My Expectations

Of the many knives I have bought from BladeHQ, this one caught my eye. I just got it today, and it has already exceeded my expectations. While it is more expensive than my Shrades and Bokers (which I love and use constantly), it is feather light, tight, has a fast action and it is beautifully designed.
In a word, the Lauch 4 is elegant.

Great little automatic

A nice automatic pocket knife that's legal in most states. Durable and convenient. You won't regret getting this small knife, especially if you're replacing a dated folding knife.
Great so far

Had it a few months, sometimes throughout the day I need to do small tasks like opening a box or bag, and this is perfect for that, plus you get to feel like Al Capone every time you whip out your boxcutter.

Can't speak for its ability to like, cut rope or skin a deer or kill somebody, but it was definitely pretty sharp out of the box and holds an edge well. Satisfied
Love It !!!

Obviously this knife is so small it wasn't designed for hunting so I can't say that it is perfect for everything. The Launch 4 is more for light work here and there. Due to the great steel and potential blade sharpness, I reckon the Launch 4 could handle some pretty large tasks. This knife fits well in my hand and in my pocket. It is so light that you would not even notice it. The action is very fast. The only flaw I find is a bit of excess aluminum on the edge of the liner (not like a bump or anything). When one liner is flat, the other liner is rounded. Not a functionality problem, just slight a cosmetic issue.
Love this knife

I wanted a knife i can have thats snappy and quick but at the same time not very intimidating and a gentlemans knife. THIS was the knife. Absolutely spectacular fit and finish. Pretty food edge out of box aswell. Only slight problem i run into is its kinda slippery, i do wish there was some subtle jimping or something at the top. This is my first kershaw and my first auto (im faintly new at collecting) and it set the bar pretty high
Nice sleek and perfect for CA carry

Overall fit and finish on this knife is great.

The action is very quick and blade locks into place strong.

Decent edge out of the box.

Great little off hand backup carry and made in USA to boot!

I received this knife a couple of hours ago today 5/22/17 and so far I really like it. It's smaller than I expected but my hands are semi big which kinda trump this knife. Nonetheless, Kershaw did an excellent job on making this knife. I own a launch 1 and a Knock out from kershaw and I was not surprised to see the great quality in this knife. I recommend it especially cause it is a CA legal, even though I'm born and raised Arizonan but if I go to cali I'll have a good knife. Thank you.
Great Auto

This was my first auto opener. I like it as a backup blade for off hand carry. Hang on to it because it is snappy. Very sharp out of the box. And you just can't go wrong with a Kershaw.

My Kershaw Launch 4 arrived in the mail yesterday. It looks even smaller than I thought it would be, yet it has a lot of big knife features. It is very black and very sharp. It fits in your front pocket very nicely and does not interfere with your regular daily activities. When you hit the button, the blade jumps out in a hurry. A very cool little knife. Very pleased. Thank you Kershaw and Blade HQ.

Love this little knife, i just got it in the mail today and again bladehq came through with a quality product that even came before I expected it. The knife is super sharp and fires so hard because of its size. Awesome product Kerhsaw knows whats up.
Great Value!

I'm so impressed with the fit & finish of this little knife but even more impressed by the strong action and solid lock-up.
I'm also very happy to see more US made Kershaws.

This is my second CA legal switchblade. The first was by brand X, cost almost twice as much and was, IMHO, a POS. The fit and finish of the Kershaw is beautiful. And, the action, as reported by others, is lightning quick. OOTB the blade is very sharp.
So this knife is fantastic...

I have a few other Launches but this little # 4 is in a class of its own. It is very small, very compact and very unassuming. Lock up is very solid just like Kershaw's are so no complaints there. The action is strong. You must have a firm grip on the handle when firing or it will fly right out of your hand. This is true of all Launch knives but extra true here due to the small size. Fit and finish is great. My only gripe is that there is no lanyard hole. With a blade this small you really need the lanyard to pull it from your pocket. There is a risk of hitting the firing button when withdrawing due the limited real estate in this design. Hopefully Kershaw will add this in later versions. You need not live in CA to appreciate this little auto and there is much to like. I highly recommend getting in on this one. Such a great little folder. Hopefully different colorations are in the works.
Fantastic EDC!!

I carry a knife everyday. And this little monster is perfect. The sub 2 inch blade is well made and sharp right out of the box. It has a great clip and fantastic feel to it. Could not be happier with this purchase.

Perfect Knife
