Every once in a while, our friends over at Kershaw Knives come out with something new that generates a buzz around our office. When we first laid eyes on the new Kurai, we knew that they had come up with something really interesting.
The Kurai is a gentleman’s folder with style to spare, with carbon fiber-patterned aluminum handle scales. It doesn’t sacrifice substance either-it’s heavy for its size (in a good way), and its 2.5″ 8Cr13MoV blade with Titanium Carbo-Nitride coating provides great performance and corrosion resistance at an extremely reasonable price. Opening is smooth and easy with the thumb stud, and the linerlock is nice and solid. The Kurai makes a great gift, too! Check them out today at www.knifecenter.com!
Kershaw Compound-Combo Edge (KS1940ST)
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!

Kershaw RJ Series of Assisted Openers
Amazing series of Speedsafe assisted openers designed by the great custom knifemaker RJ Martin. These work great and have a nicely streamlined handle. The blade shape is remarkable because it’s a tanto style but still has some belly on it which makes it more useful. You can see the series at www.knifecenter.com

Kershaw Tremor Assisted Very Cool Pocketknife!
Kershaw Knives releases another winning folding pocketknife. The Tremor you just felt was the sound of Kershaw’s competitors running back to the drawing board. Kershaw has been the leader in the development and evolution of assisted opening knives since the beginning. We have not seen much new from them in the last couple years in this category, but they have come roaring back with the Tremor. This large G10 linerlock with a blade kicker is made in China under the supervision of Kershaw’s parent company and features the original Ken Onion SpeedSafe technology.

Kershaw Barrage and Zing with Damascus Blades
Kershaw released some beauties that are American made and sell at great prices. One model, the Barrage, is brand new and the first one we received is with a Damascus steel blade. It is a flipper opener -and, although not assisted, it is “blur-like.” The other is one of the new ZING models but has the same Damascus steel blade. We like these very much and will have plenty of stock next week.
