A stout utility knife in a compact size
The wide-blade Kershaw ¾-Ton is a great knife for slicing—and that means everything from slicing open a cardboard box to cutting some apple slices to go with lunch.
This extra-wide blade makes the ¾-Ton a great little work and general utility knife, too, because it gives you plenty of cutting options. In fact, when you only want to carry one knife, it’s a great choice for handling a full range of every day tasks. Yet to streamline the ¾-Ton’s wide blade—and make it an even better slicer—we built the blade from slimmer blade stock and gave it wide panel grinds. This means that about two-thirds of the blade has been thinned—so that even though the blade is plenty stout, it still slices through just about anything like a champ. That said, the ¾-Ton’s wide blade simply has more steel in it so it’s extra strong and tough. Made of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, the blade is bead-blasted for a no-fuss finish.
The handle is equally easy care. The scales are glass-filled nylon for durability and dimensional stability. A rubber insert provides additional grip traction and has the Kershaw logo in raised letters. A locking liner provides lockup security while the blade is open and releases with a push to the left when you’re ready. As a finishing touch, the ¾ Ton has our exclusive wrench-shaped pocketclip.
There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife’s steel “liner,” the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.
The pocketclip is in a fixed position on the knife handle; usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary.
