Inspired by the lines of aerospace design, the Norad has landed. The Norad opens with Kershaw’s KVT ball-bearing system and a flipper. But we reduced the size of the flipper when the knife is closed—and made it disappear altogether when the knife is open. Carbon fiber inserts in the steel handle and an oversized, polished pivot add a modern look, while a custom backspacer with raised jimping provides a secure grip. The big, beefy drop-point blade has a two-toned finish: a hollow in the blade features gray PVD coating and the rest of the blade is machine satin finished.

- • D2 high-carbon tool steel blade is highly wear resistant, tough, offers excellent edge retention
- • Steel handle has carbon fiber inserts, front and back; raised custom backspacer helps ensure a solid grip
- • Opens easily with KVT ball-bearing system; flipper is concealed when the knife is open
- • Reversible pocketclip for left/right 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.
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.
