Kershaw Knives, manufacturers of the super plain-edged Compound folding knife, have added a new combo edge version. Featuring Kershaw’s buttery-smooth, precise SpeedSafe® assisted opening mechanism (accessed by a built-in flipper), this knife opens with a very solid “click”, and is secured by a locking liner.
This Kershaw Compound sports a 3.5″ partially-serrated, heat-treated 8CR13MoV steel blade. Offering a removable clip for tip-up or tip-down carry, the Compound utilizes glass-reinforced nylon handles. The result is a very solid-feeling knife, yet it weighs just 3.8 oz.-and it costs just $25.95! Take a look at the combo edge Compound-and its plain-edged brother-at www.knifecenter.com!

The Compound is a versatile utility knife equipped with SpeedSafe® assisted opening and designed for excellent slicing ability and extra control. It opens easily with the built-in flipper. Kershaw heat-treats the 8CR13MoV blade steel to bring out its high-performance characteristics—the ability to take and hold an edge, strength, and hardness. Glass-filled nylon handles make the Compound light enough for every day carry.
