A tactically styled automatic
Get a dark tactical look with the Launch 6 automatic knife from Kershaw.
This slim—and ever-so-slightly wicked-looking—knife features premium CPM 154 blade steel. This powdered metallurgy steel offers more uniform distribution of carbides so it takes and holds an excellent edge. It also provides good corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness. Black DLC coating adds non-reflectivity and enhances performance.
Durable anodized aluminum handles lighten the Launch 6's weight and Kershaw machines them to provide a secure grip. This automatic knife opens with a recessed push button. We made the button level with the flat of the handle as a safety feature that makes it harder for the knives to accidentally deploy. Left-handers can use an index finger instead of the thumb to press the blade-release/lock button. The Launch 6 also has a reversible pocketclip and a pre-drilled lanyard tie-off hole.
Automatic knives are dangerous and should be handled with extreme caution in all circumstances. Comply with all local, State, and Federal regulations regarding the purchase, owning, carrying, and transportation of automatic knives.
Due to the many and varied Federal and State laws that govern the purchase, owning, and transportation of automatic knives, Kershaw Automatics will be sold only through authorized Kershaw dealers. They are not available for purchase on this website; this webpage is for information only.
Found on the Kershaw Folding Saw, it locks the saw blade open during use, then releases with the push of a button for storage.
Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
