This knife will be a definite Asset to your knife collection. Put this one to work slicing through your very next task. With plenty of belly, it excels at long clean cuts through the material—from insulation, to foam, to cardboard, to whatever you're cutting. The point is thin, sharp, and easily controlled for good piercing, too. The Asset's blade steel is 8Cr13MoV, which is basically the equivalent of the more well known AUS8A. Kershaw® precision heat-treats this steel to bring out its very best, high-performance qualities, including hardness and wear resistance. The Asset opens with a SpeedSafe® assist for fast and easy one-handed opening. Just pull back on the ambidextrous flipper blade protrusion and SpeedSafe takes over, moving the blade out of the handle, ready for use. A locking liner secures the blade open until you release it. Even larger hands will find that the Asset provides a comfortable non-slip grip. The slight pistol grip curves to fit the hand nicely. The index-finger contour adds even more grip control, and when the blade is opened, the flipper doubles as a finger guard.
