‘Made in the USA’ Kershaw automatic knives are once again being manufactured and are available, according to the Oregon-based company (Stand N7-484).
Kershaw’s Launch 1 (pictured), Launch 2 and Launch 3 automatics feature blades of premium CPM154 stainless steel, which has a more uniform distribution of carbides for an excellent edge. All three have durable anodised aluminium handles to lighten their weight.
They are available with uncoated and coated blades, and there is a Launch with Kershaw’s popular BlackWash finish. A recessed pushbutton level with the flat of the handle, which is a safety feature, opens the knife.
