Kershaw 3880BW & 3890BW

Kershaw Blackwash Thermite and Scrambler 

The Thermite and Scrambler were new assisted-opening flipper models introduced last year and they are here to stay! Each is designed by a powerhouse name in the industry, the Thermite by Rick Hinderer and the Scrambler by RJ Martin. Each is a superb EDC knife with high manufacturing quality and rocking Kershaw’s new Blackwash finish. This black coated, then tumbled finish is quickly becoming the preferred look here at the KnifeCenter for it’s durable and tactical properties. G10 handle scales, 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, and adequately thick frame lock mechanisms provide these knives with everything they need to be part of your EDC rotation. Best of all, at $41.95 apiece, these won’t break the bank. See these great knives at www.knifecenter.com

Kershaw KnivesThe Thermite and the Scrambler are great Kershaw models…great prices, great designs, and great quality. The addition of blackwash to the blade finish give these patterns a really cool profile, almost a menacing look. However you describe it, you’re gonna like carrying it, and using it, for a long time!

The Kershaw Thermite, designed by Rick Hinderer, was introduced last year and has been in-demand ever since.

Now we’re giving it a new look with our BlackWash finish. BlackWash gives a knife that already-broken-in look—like a favorite well-worn pair of jeans. The coating provides an extra measure of protection for the metal, and the BlackWash helps hide any additional scratches you may put on the knife during normal use.

What doesn’t change is the Thermite’s tactical styling and practical performance. Rick Hinderer and Kershaw designed it to give users Rick Hinderer’s no-nonsense functionality—but with enough style to be an exceptionally eye-catching knife. BlackWash just makes it more so.

The 3.5-in. blade is hollow-ground, providing excellent slicing ability. A flat-ground “spanto” tip offers strong piercing and even prying capabilities. A machined G-10 front scale and a heavily textured backspacer add to the Thermite’s striking looks. On the practical side, the back handle is stainless steel with a frame lock and lockbar stabilizer for an always-secure lockup.

For easy opening, the Thermite is equipped with SpeedSafe, which can be accessed with the ambidextrous flipper or thumbstud. Kershaw’s four-position deep-carry pocketclip offers complete carrying versatility.

Features

  • SpeedSafe® - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • Flipper - May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The “flipper” is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
  • Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
  • Quad-Carry - The user may position the pocketclip for tip-up or tip-down, left- or right-handed carry.

The Thermite and the Scrambler are great Kershaw models…great prices, great designs, and great quality. The addition of blackwash to the blade finish give these patterns a really cool profile, almost a menacing look. However you describe it, you’re gonna like carrying it, and using it, for a long time!

The Scrambler is a cool and classy knife to begin with. But now Kershaw has added an extra measure of cool with their BlackWash finish. BlackWash gives a knife that already-broken-in look—like a favorite well-worn pair of jeans. The coating also provides an extra measure of protection for the metal and helps hide any additional scratches you may put on the knife during normal use.

Designed by RJ Martin, the Scrambler’s drop-point blade is hollow-ground so it breezes through slicing tasks, while the large flat-ground top swedge adds to its good looks.

The blade steel offers strength and good edge retention. All the metal on the knife—blade, front bolster, and handle back are BlackWash finished. The comfortable, secure-grip handle features textured G-10 on the front side and a sturdy frame lock on the other. The bolster is extended to provide forefinger protection and to ensure the knife sits firmly in the hand during use.

The Scrambler opens quickly and easily with the ambidextrous flipper and SpeedSafe assisted opening. It includes a reversible pocketclip for left- or right-handed carry.

  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
