Boom! The Kershaw Valmara Assisted Opening Knife is ready to rock! Why? It’s named after an Italian bounding fragmentation landmine and noted knifemaker Les George has used his U.S. Marine background to make it explosive! The 3”drop-point blade has a slight recurve for excellent slicing and multi-tasking capabilities. A top swedge thins the blade at the point, improving piercing. The 8Cr13MoV blade steel ensures this blade takes and holds its sharp edge. The stonewashed finish looks good and hides scratches. You’ll get a good hold on the handle thanks to its full contouring and heavy “S” surface texture. The knife is fast and easy to open with SpeedSafe assisted opening and the built-in flipper. A sturdy liner lock secures the blade while you’re working. The Valmara is also equipped with a pre-drilled lanyard hole and a left/right reversible pocket-clip. You will appreciate how this solid, larger knife feels in your hand and how it takes on just about any task you’ve got in mind.
