It's SpeedSafe equipped, has a framelock with lockbar stabilizer, and a 4-way reversible pocket carry clip.

Amazing Knife!!!
Nicholas V.
First off, I got my Thermite from my local Gander Mountain store which is gone now for around $50, but I used some gift cards and purchased it for about $30. Man do I wish I bought it from Blade HQ! I love you guys! Always putting out great info in your videos and on your site! For $22 this is one of the best knives you can get! As soon as I got this knife I put the pocket clip in the tip up position with no problems (sorry for those who couldn’t change that because of the Loctite issue :/) It was very sharp out of box which I just love from Kershaw! I did change the angle but man does this go through anything you need it to. For the size it is the perfect weight for me and the ergonomics are amazing for my hands. If you need a knife that can do it all on a budget, then this knife is a great option! I would however like to see this in different steel options if Kershaw wouldn’t mind. 8Cr13MoV is a good budget steel but if they would use something a little better with edge retention I’d definitely buy another!
Its ok..

Overall this knife just doesn't do it for me. The action is a little off and the lockbar is worrisome. The overall build is good enough but the lockbar just doesn't feel solid. The thumb studs are completely useless as well...
Great Knife

It doesn't get as much attention as the cryo, zing, chive, or skyline. But I would grab this knife before any of those. It's also a nice entry level Hinderer.

and just an AMAZING knife.

Cons: Nothing

I've been interested in this knife since preproduction. Hinderer knives, customs or ZTs are out of my price limits. This full size import as well as the g-10 Cryo fit my needs. The only crutch for me on this one is weight. I love it but I know I won't carry it as much because it's a little heavy.
