An outright eye-catching EDC
Kershaw decided to go blue sky on this one. Literally. The durable and scratch-resistant PVD coating on the Outright is deep blue—and the color is definitely the first thing that you will notice about this attractive pocketknife.
But there’s a lot more to the Outright. Its upswept blade makes it an excellent slicer, while the 8Cr13MoV blade steel ensures good edge retention, strength, and hardness. The Outright’s handle is matching blue PVD-coated steel with a sturdy frame lock. For additional style and enhanced grip, the handle has an overlay of black G10.
This medium-sized knife opens with SpeedSafe assisted opening with flipper or thumb stud. Hardware (except handle standoffs) and the single-position pocketclip are PVD coated in blue to maintain the knife’s colorful aesthetic. The Outright comes in at an outright affordable price, too.
Release Year: 2018
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.
The pocketclip is in a fixed position on the knife handle; usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary.
