Kershaw's most recent 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!
Each of the Launch models features a stylish and unique integral backspacer pattern where the two pieces of aluminum connect and the USA flag is laser-engraved on the back side of the handle. In tandem with the reversible tip-up carry pocket clip, the Kershaw Launch 1 model is outfitted with a pass-through hole hidden at the base on the handle for lanyard attachment.
This Kershaw Launch 1 has a BlackWash finished CPM-154 steel blade and black anodized aluminum handle. The firing button on this knife has a catchy bulls-eye ring pattern with a bold red accent.
