The ultra-refined Atmos
The blade is a slim, modified drop point with top swedge, machine satin finished on the grinds and satin sanded on the flats. The handle is lightweight G10 with a secure—and weight-reducing—inset liner lock. The handle has a layer of carbon fiber, yes. But it is unlike others you may have seen.
To ensure your experience with the Atmos is cloud-smooth and blue-sky easy, Kershaw chamfered—smoothed and angled—the edges of the carbon fiber to make sure it feels comfortable when you hold it in your hand and that it glides into and out of your pocket smoothly and easily, too.
Designed by Dmitry Sinkevich, the Atmos features Sinkevich’s characteristic clean and practical design—but enhanced with extra detailing. In addition to the chamfered carbon-fiber, it also has a custom oversized pivot, a backspacer with wide lanyard attachment, and a reversible, deep-carry pocketclip. This manual knife opens quickly and easily with Kershaw’s KVT ball-bearing opening system. Extra detailing like this gives the Atmos a refined style that easily bridges the gap from workday to night on the town.

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.
There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
Inset Liner Lock
A strip of stainless steel is riveted inside the knife’s handle—most commonly when the handle is a lightweight material. This enables us to create a slimmer, lighter knife, while still providing the strength and security of a locking liner.
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.
