Meet Kershaw's first automatic knife, the Launch 1. It features the signature bulls-eye recessed push button/lock release, a strong opening kick, and is made in the USA.
The CPM154 blade takes and holds an excellent edge while providing good corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness. The black DLC coating provides rough-and-tumble good looks and additional blade protection.
To lighten the Launch 1's weight, the handles are durable anodized aluminum and are contoured to fit snugly in the hand. This is a practical well-made everyday carry and a solid offering from Kershaw.
