Kershaw Launch-6 Automatic Knife

Feb 17, 2016

Category: Gear

Kershaw’s new Launch 6 is a sleek and tough automatic knife that’s great for everyday carry. With a blade made out of powdered metallurgy steel, you’ll be able to put this thing through hell without having it quit on you. The technology offers a more even distribution of carbines to help the blade hold its edge, prevents against corrosion, and resists general wear. The Black DLC coating on this CPM154 steel blade is non-reflective, making for a mean matte look. The blade measures in at 3.75 inches long, and the entire knife is about 5 inches when open making it easy to carry around.

The anodized aluminum handles provide for a great grip with a light weight, and features a recessed automatic open push button. Depending on which hand you hold the knife in you can open the blade with an index finger or your thumb. The Launch 6 comes with a reversible pocket clip and pre drilled lanyard tie off hole for easy neck carry. You can pick up this American made knife for $170. [Purchase]
