Kershaw's Barstow Assisted Opening Pocket Knife is a little wicked and a lot of value! It's a potent folding dagger that's slim, sleek and always at the ready. The 3" spear point blade is forged from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel and boasts a (one-sided) carefully honed, razor sharp edge. Shrouded in Kershaw's celebrated BlackWash coating, the menacing dagger blade is nonreflective and has a rugged "broken in" look right out of the box. The advanced BlackWash coating also helps protect the blade, while hiding scratches and other blemishes caused by everyday use. Built with extraordinarily tough glass-filled nylon scales, the handle withstands vigorous use and harsh environmental conditions like a champ, and its heavy duty arrow-patterned texture yields an incredible no-slip grip. The stout steel liner, also coated in nonreflective BlackWash, provides an equally robust liner lock to secure the blade in the open position during use. Opening the Barstow is a breeze, thanks to Kershaw's cutting edge SpeedSafe assisted opening mechanism and the handy built-in flipper. All the Barstow's hardware is black - with the notable exception of the tube spacers, which are anodized in blue for a subtle touch of distinctive, eye-catching color. Convenient, discreet and remarkably versatile, the deep-carry pocket clip lets the Barstow ride low in the pocket, and predrilled holes in the handle enable users to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries. There are few - if any - folding daggers that can match the Barstow's impeccable style, smooth operation and fierce cutting power, and certainly none at this price point!
