Maneuverable trailing-point blade, great value price
The Asset will be a definite asset to your knife collection. Put this one to work slicing through your very next task. With plenty of belly, it excels at long clean cuts through the material—from insulation, to foam, to cardboard, to whatever you’re cutting. The point is thin, sharp, and easily controlled for good piercing, too.
The Asset’s blade steel is 8Cr13MoV, which is basically the equivalent of the more well known AUS8A. Kershaw precision heat-treats this steel to bring out its very best, high-performance qualities, including hardness and wear resistance. The Asset opens with a SpeedSafe assist for fast and easy one-handed opening. Just pull back on the ambidextrous flipper blade protrusion and SpeedSafe takes over, moving the blade out of the handle, ready for use.
A locking liner secures the blade open until you release it. Even larger hands will find the Asset provides a comfortable and confident non-slip grip. The slight pistol grip curves to fit the hand nicely. The index-finger contour adds even more grip control, and when the blade is opened, the flipper doubles as a finger guard.
May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The “flipper” is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
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.
Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
