Value priced and Kershaw solid
The Compound is a excellent knife for pocket carry—especially if you want a utility knife that’s built to do just about everything, and has a good, solid feeling and a value price. The blade is a modified drop-point with enough belly for excellent slicing capability and enough blade for just about everything else.
The steel is 8Cr13MoV, 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 Compound 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. Something you’ll definitely notice is the handle design. The handle’s strong contours and slim “tail” fit neatly into the hand and provide a surprisingly secure grip. Once opened, the flipper protrusion on the blade doubles as an extended hard guard. Glass-filled nylon handle scales make this good-sized knife lightweight and comfortable enough for easy pocket carry.
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.
