Your Identity is unique
You want a knife that’s different? You want an Identity. With its black-and-grey coloring, the Identity has a tactical look. But it's a tactical look with a difference.
The broad drop-point blade flows into the patterned handle, which tapers to a slim end. A larger bolster and the unusual texturing on both sides of the handle enable your hand to lock in securely as you grip the knife.
In keeping with its name, the pattern on the handle scales is inspired by a unique part of a person’s identity—the fingerprint. Concentric fingerprint-like circles give the Kershaw Identity an unusual look as well as enhancing grip. The blade is 8Cr13MoV stainless steel for good edge retention and easy resharpening; black-oxide coating makes it non-reflective, too.
The blade opens quickly and easily with SpeedSafe assisted opening. The handle is steel with a textured glass-filled nylon front scale and machined texture on the back, too. A frame lock makes blade lock up easy and secure. The knife's deep-carry clip is left/right reversible and makes the Identity especially discreet to 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.
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.
