Description

The Launch 6 is the embodiment of a sleek, all-purpose tactical folder. It adds the convenience of push-button automatic action to facilitate one-hand opening and speed. The black DLC coated steel blade has a long cutting edge that aligns with the centerline of the handle. This Launch 6 model has a purple aluminum handle and a reversible tip-up carry pocket clip.

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!

Great Knife When You Maintain It

A really good knife overall. Everyone has been complaining that the knife doesn't lock half the time. I find this to not be true once you learn how to use it properly. You press the button and release it immediately before the blade deploys. I've learned that lubing the deploy button along with the pivot the blade rotates on fixes this problem. This knife is meant to be lubed in order for the blade to lock property, not a lot of lube is required and if you use a good brand, the knife will stay lubed for a while. So, include adding some lube to the knife as part of your sharpening routine. The blade itself is also very big, however if you're looking for a pocket knife with a big blade I would recommend picking this one. This knife came sharp as a razor and is very easy to sharpen if you know what you're doing. I'd recommend this knife to people who have a good understanding on automatics because this knife has a hard recoil if you're not prepared for it along with basic maintenance for what I just described. Overall a great knife and it is my current edc. I like this knife so much that I retired my CRKT M-16 after 18 years of service from both my Dad and I.
Nice knife however the lock does not engage sometimes

Fit and finish is good for this level of knife and blade is quite sharp. It snaps open with authority and there are no hot spots for my medium sized hand. A real nice knife except for the fact that the lock fails to engage about half the time which to me is a critical failure.
I will work with it for a while, but if it doesn’t improve it will go back to Kershaw.
