This automatic features CPM 154 blade steel, a strong opening kick, and is made-in-the-USA at Kershaw’s Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility. It features a big, 3 2/5” versatile drop-point blade with a BlackWash blade finish that helps hide use scratches. The CPM 154 powdered metallurgy blade steel takes and holds an excellent edge, provides corrosion resistance, wear resistance and toughness. It also has an integrated backspacer with a lanyard tie-off. Made in the USA.
