Volt looks with a slimmer profile
This version of the Volt offers a clean, sleek look and a classic clip-point blade. The design is based on our original Volt, a Composite Blade wonder. This Volt SS doesn’t have a Composite Blade, but what it does have is pure stainless steel, all the way down.
The blade is high-quality 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, heat treated to Kershaw specifications to bring out the very best in the steel—strength, hardness, and the ability to take and hold a wicked edge. The Volt SS blade shape is a versatile clip point. With its narrow, clipped tip, it provides extra cutting control for delicate tasks. At the same time, the blade has enough belly to make it a good slicer, too.
The handle is pure stainless steel with a sturdy frame lock. It’s slimmer than previous Volts, which makes it sit comfortably in your pocket. The pocketclip is reversible for either tip-up or tip-down carry. And did we mention that the Volt SS is equipped with SpeedSafe® assisted opening? Just pull back on the ambidextrous flipper and the blade moves out of the handle, quickly and easily.
Release Year: 2012
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 user may position the pocketclip for tip-up or tip-down carry on one side and one-position carry on the other.
