The Deadline is one of the most unique Kershaws out there. Savor the smooth opening with the Tuned Detent System (TDS)™. Accidentally press your finger on the lockbar? With TDS, it doesn't matter. The manual, KVT Kershaw will fly right open. Wharncliffe fans will get a kick out of the Deadline's blade shape as well. It's a great design for carving, light food prep, and other general cutting tasks. The knife was featured in TREAD because of these great features and more.
