Kershaw Knives

The new Starter's design is machined and complex — yet smoothly functional.

The BlackWash finish gives it a rough-and-tumble look, yet the finish isn’t just for looks. The coating provides an extra measure of protection for the metal, and the BlackWash helps hide any additional scratches you put on the knife during normal use.

The Starter is equipped with SpeedSafe® assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. It opens neatly with the built-in flipper or thumbstud. A sturdy liner lock safely secures the blade open during use, and then closes easily for storage or carry. The all-steel design really shows off the BlackWash finish.

The Starter includes a deep-carry pocketclip so the knife rides comfortably low in the pocket for discreet carry.
  • Flipper - May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The “flipper” is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
  • SpeedSafe® - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • Liner Lock - Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife’s steel “liner,” the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Lock Type, Blade Material, Overall Quality
The Keyshawn starter is an ok budget knife. The steel does loose its edge very quickly but it is a pretty good looking knife. I would get this knife only if you know how to sharpen knives because you will have to do that. The pivot screw does strip very very easily.

Pros: Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Pocket Clip
Cons: Sheath, Ease of Opening, None
Overall it is an excellent knife. The weight helps if I had to bust glass (which I did about a week ago with if), very sharp, very good carrying knife for the price. I would recommend it to anyone.

Pros: Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Blade Material
Only looks like a knfie
This is a well designed budget knife. I was happy with it out of the box but once I started using it the budget price became obvious. The blade is absolutely worthless. I only used this blade for opening boxes and packages so it only went through plastic wrap, scotch tape and some cardboard and the edge chipped out. I resharpened it to a razor edge and a few days later, same result. Do yourself a favor, spend a little more money and get a real knife.
