The Kershaw Norad is an ultramodern design, and it's packed with a host of features too. The blade is made of D2 tool steel, which is super tough and wear resistance, and the handle is made of stainless steel with carbon fiber inlays. The blade opens with the thumb groove that allows easy one-handed opening without anything obstructing the cutting path.Features:
Wasn’t sure about this knife when I ordered it only because of the weight issue but the ergonomics are really great and it slipped right in the pocket with a good feel. I would really recommend it if you’re looking for a stout knife and don’t mind a little bit of extra weight than the normal G-10 type issue.
I loved the lines on this knife and grabbed it on sale. Opened it up to find it heavy, as expected, and hard to open, unexpected for a kershaw. I had to work on it a bit to fine tune it and get the framelock to loosen up a bit. Now that I have that working the only problem is the sharp edges and jimping, considering sanding the edges to make it a little more comfortable. But for a decorative/conversation starter it shows a lot of blade for the handle size and has found its way in my pocket more than expected.
