Kershaw NRG Folder
The NRG Folder from Kershaw Knives is an awesome folder. When Kershaw first brought out the Speed Safe Assisted opening mechanism, they were proud of the fact that they had a product that opened almost as fast as a switchblade, but wasn’t a switchblade. Now Kershaw has produced a knife that opens almost as fast as an assisted opener, but isn’t an assisted opener. The NRG – read as Energy – features a kicker on the back of the handle that allows for quick opening without any kind of assist. This is not a new concept, but making it work well is certainly new. Oh yeah, it also features Sandvic 13C26 steel, so it is wicked sharp to boot!
