A bigger knife that offers both the maximum Emerson look and feel, as well as, the maximum Kershaw build quality is what you get in this manual opening pocket knife. If you prefer a knife on a larger side, this one is the biggest of the Kershaw bunch and features the Emerson “wave shaped opening feature” that lets you open the knife as you withdraw it from your pocket. The big drop-point blade is 3 3/5” of black-oxide-coated 8Cr13MoV stainless steel for good edge retention, hardness, and wear resistance. There’s a slight recurve in the blade for enhanced cutting of rounded materials, such as rope, hose, or zip ties. The handle is contoured to fit the hand like a glove and the front scale is textured G-10 for a secure grip. The handle back is steel, black-oxide coated, and features a secure frame lock. This manual knife also opens with a thumb disk and there’s also a convenient hole for a lanyard and the pocket-clip is left/right reversible.
