The Amplitude is bigger, badder & better than ever
The Kershaw Amplitude is bigger than ever. Literally. Kershaw and Todd Rexford teamed up to bring knife users all the style and streamlined looks of the Amplitude 2.5, but in a slightly larger pocketknife.
The Amplitude 3.25 offers a 3.25-inch blade—as you might have already guessed—yet when closed, the knife is still a compact 4.1 inches long. The 8Cr13MoV blade is heat treated to Kershaw’s demanding specifications to bring out the very best qualities in the steel. A BlackWash finish on both blade and handle combines with the simple lines of the Amplitude to give this knife a sophisticated look. Oversized pivot hardware kicks it up a notch in style.
This no-nonsense knife offers simple, clean lines, a drop-point blade, and a smooth all-steel handle that’s contoured to give it the feel of Todd’s custom knives. A sturdy frame lock secures the blade when open. So that the Amplitude 3.25 is ready when needed, it can be opened one-handed thanks to SpeedSafe assisted opening and the handy, built-in flipper.
Kershaw completes the package with a left/right reversible, deep-carry pocketclip. Just loosen the screw, flip the clip around, retighten and you're good to go.

Discontinued Year: 2018
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.
SpeedSafe® Assisted Opening
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.
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.
