Innovative Knife Technologies & Advanced Materials Keep Kershaw Out Front

Kershaw Knives has long been known for innovation. We were the first to adopt the use of many of the advanced steels, high-tech materials, and superior coatings that are now used industry-wide. We were first to introduce groundbreaking new technologies that—quite frankly—revolutionized our industry. And we promise that there will be more to come. With new opening and locking systems under development and new materials constantly becoming available, Kershaw will continue to design and create innovative tools that knife owners will be proud to own, carry, and use.
