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

This is my third in the launch series. They are all top notch and very snappy. I particularly like this knife for it's size. As others have mentioned, it fits perfectly in the watch pocket of your jeans. It's small, but perfectly functional. Is it a great all around camping knife? No. It was never meant to be. Is it a very capable EDC? yes!! I highly recommend it.
Super fast/snappy! Perfect for light duty EDC. I often have trouble deciding between this & my Bugout.
The knife is so snappy! The fit and finish on the knife are great and there are so many options for color so it can fit your personality.
Awesome in the watch pocket. Snappy as all get out. The quality is top notch. Recommend for sure.
I love this knife and how small it is, but my only problem has been the button sticks a little. IDK if i just need to wear it in more or oil it more. But it has a little delay since the button sticks a little and the button needs to be depressed so much that is makes the knife delay to open. Same with trying to close the knife. To get it to unlock to close i have to really press the button down deep or it just wont close. Its kinda annoying but hopefully will go away after more use. If not i might try to file down the locking nut or whatever that little cylinder is called that keep the knife from opening and closing.
First of all. It is much smaller than I expected. That may end up being a good thing being I have ordered a lanyard specifically made for this knife. I plan to hang it from my neck like a whistle. Second, It seems very well put together. There isn't any play in the blade. When you push the button you get a solid click as the blade comes out and locks open. Third, I bought the one with the Damascus blade. I was under the impression that this was the best metal available for this knife. This is a first for me so I will have to see how it hold up.
I already own a Microtech, so my expectations are high. This Kershaw seem like a solid little knife. Looks and feels well-made, BUT... the button sticks. I noticed another reviewer had the same problem. This is clearly a design and/or manufacturing flaw. Will be looking for an alternative brand.
