The new Black Vapor III is one smooth operator
The Vapor has gone to the dark side as the Black Vapor III.
Black oxide coating on both handle and blade give this Vapor a handsome, non-reflective look—and enhances corrosion resistance. And in case you hadn’t guessed, we named this knife the “Vapor” because the holes drilled in the handle give the knives an airy look and lighten the weight of the knife in your pocket.
The Vapor’s modern, “not your father’s pocketknife” design is matched by its amazingly silky smooth manual opening. Thanks to Kershaw’s meticulous manufacturing process and our precision fit-and-finish standards, the blade glides out smoothly and locks into place with a satisfying "snick." The drop-point blade provides tip strength and cutting versatility. The 8Cr13MoV blade steel offers excellent hardness and wear resistance. And we heat treat the steel to bring out its highest performance characteristics.
For safe use, the Black Vapor III’s sturdy frame lock ensures a secure blade lock up, yet releases and closes easily. With a little practice, you’ll be able to open and close your manual black Vapor III one-handed. And you’ll look awesome doing it.
Serrations assist in cutting through particularly tough or fibrous material, such as rope or cord. The Kershaw 2-step serration is a more aggressive style of serration.
There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
