Fraxion - Tan
This black-and-tan Fraxion is the one you want
The Fraxion, from Kershaw and Danish custom knife and toolmaker, Jens Ansø, is a proven hit—and a great choice for the knife user who prefers a contemporary look and a compact size. And now it’s available with a BlackWash™ blade and tan G10 handle with carbon fiber overlay.
The black-and-tan Fraxion is a slim, sleek design that weighs in at a “Fraxion” of the weight of other comparable knives. The lighter weight is thanks to the streamlined design as well as to the light-yet-strong G10 handles with a handsome carbon fiber overlay. An inset liner lock secures the blade open during use while also helping keep down the overall weight and maintaining the handle’s comfortable slimness.
The clip-point blade features a top swedge and a good-looking BlackWash finish. Built of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, the blade offers a sharp, long-lasting edge for day-to-day tasks. The Fraxion is a manual knife, but can be opened quickly, easily, and one-handed with the built-in flipper.
For convenient left- or right-handed carry, the Fraxion is equipped with a reversible deep-carry pocketclip, enabling it to ride comfortably low in the pocket.

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.
Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
