This week’s steal is a very sleek and affordable folding knife from Kershaw and custom knifemaker Todd Rexford. The Kershaw Injection is a no-nonsense, functional folder with the kind of streamlined, elegant design Rexford is known for.
The action is surprisingly snappy and responsive. The dual thumb studs have been milled to allow for a solid purchase that makes opening this knife a pleasure. The blade is a 3.5″ drop point with a subtle hollow grind and lovely bead blast finish, my personal favorite. With a three and a half inch cutting edge and a good bit of belly, there’s some great cutting power at play here.
The heavy stainless steel liners make for a sturdy frame, and the liner lock holds the blade in place very securely. The handle sports 3D machined G10 scales that feel really smooth in the palm while still providing satisfactory grip. The hand feel is quite ergonomic, with the flare on the butt of the handle filling the palm nicely.
One of the cool features here is the gap in the chamfered G10 backspacer that makes room for an inset lanyard pin. The pocket clip on this model is reversible, allowing for a left or right side, tip up carry. The knife clips onto your pocket a little awkwardly due to the size of the thumb studs, but draws very easily.
Overall, the Kershaw Injection is a stylish, functional folder, and the low price makes it an excellent option for an everyday carry. You can use it, abuse it, or even lose it without worry and it would make an excellent gift for anybody – whether they’re into knives or not. To learn more about this knife, click here.
