Kershaw has just released the great Groove folder with textured, black finish recurved tanto blade. This knife is made in the USA. The Kershaw Groove folder has been popular since its initial release. Now with a black finish, this is a great looking folder with fast action (not assisted or automatic) and that “stealth” look. The unique texture on the blade adds to its performance.
Here are the SPECS and information we have for the black groove:
The machined blade is made of Sandvik 13C26 for durability, hardness, and excellent corrosion and wear resistance. The handle is 410 stainless steel with G-10 overlays that provide for an extra-secure grip. The Groove’s one-handed, index-finger opening design makes it smooth and the system has a unique build up of pressure and then pops open for easy deployment for both left and right-handed customers. There’s also a secure frame lock when the blade is open. A removable pocket that can be reversed for tip up or tip down carry is also attached.
Designed by custom knife maker RJ Martin, the Groove is characterized by a unique 3-D machined blade with a striated pattern. It also features a dramatic abstract handle that is a signature Martin design.
