Unique cuts on the handle and blade give the new Piston a great look. While the Piston is a larger knife, its milled G10 handles make it light enough for everyday carry. An Inset Liner Lock secures the blade when open. Theres a hidden lanyard loop in the interior of the handle so nothing interrupts the Pistons cool good looks. The blade is stonewashed 14C28N stainless steel with great looking profile. Made in the USA.
Here's what I like about the Piston: Light weight, nice blade, assisted opening, feels perfect in the hand, nice aesthetic, made in America. The spring became loose which allowed something to move and sound loose, by the pivot, while the blade was deployed, around 9 months after purchase. This was discovered when I removed the scales and visualized The small spring that I could not get to sit perfectly and noise free. Nothing appeared broken. I reassembled it and sent it to Kershaw. My hunch is is will come back perfect. Will update.
