The new Grinder Assisted Opening Knife by Kershaw is a pure work-horse! This knife wants to be to work on your most difficult jobs. It offers a blade with a slightly curved belly for all-purpose cutting and slicing. A clipped, tanto-inspired tip offers excellent piercing capabilities, too. If you need to bear down on the back of the blade during a particularly tough cutting job, the concave spine with heavy jimping provides additional grip security. The work-ready 3 1/4” blade is made of 4Cr13MoV steel for solid service. The Grinder is always ready to go to work quickly thanks to the SpeedSafe assisted opening and convenient built-in flipper. A secure liner lock keeps the blade securely open during work until you release it. The glass-filled nylon handle is ergonomically contoured to fit the hand securely and grooved to offer an extra-secure grip. The deep-carry pocket-clip is easily reversible for tip-down, right- or left-handed carry.
