Information Tech Specs

Rugged, gentlemanly, and dead sexy

This smaller pocketknife from Kershaw and Jens Ansø features a slim, 3-inch blade of 8Cr13MoV in our BlackWash™ finish. A top swedge adds to its eye appeal. The Method opens quickly, easily, and manually with our KVT ball-bearing system and a built-in flipper.

The handle is black—of course. The G10 handle features an unusual machined pattern reminiscent of an architectural truss. It not only looks good, but also offers additional grip security. A custom backspacer features Jens’ large lanyard attachment for those of you who prefer a lanyard, and adds a touch of style even if you’re the lanyard-free type. An inset liner lock keeps the weight down on the Method while still providing solid blade-lockup security. A single-position pocketclip (right, tip-up) enables the knife to sit securely inside your pocket.

How do we accomplish all this style and value in a smaller knife? By using the Kershaw manufacturing “Method,” of course.

Technical Specifications

  • Flipper
    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.

  • Manual
    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.

  • Liner Lock
    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.

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