A TACTICAL LOOK & FEEL IN A LARGER BLACKWASH™ KNIFE

So much knife and so much cool factor for under twenty bucks. When we started selling assisted openers, we never thought they would be this flawless in operation… this affordable… yeah, and this cool looking!

The Kershaw 1302BW Lifter offers a tactical modified tanto blade and a tough, machined style.

The BlackWash finish gives it an already-worn-in 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 Lifter 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 frame 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 Lifter includes a deep-carry pocketclip so the knife rides comfortably low in the pocket for discreet carry.
Features
  • 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.
  • Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.

Buy it
I'm basically in love with this knife. I don't really like tantos or recurve blades, but it was $20 and I love blackwash. This is one of the best knives I've ever owned. It feels like a tank being all stainless, its heavy but ut feels good. it opens fast and smooth, its a framelock, and a flipper and it has a deep carry clip; I'm even starting to really like the blade shape, it can be really useful. I would even compare it to my zt in terms of quality it seems right on par, which is very impressive for a $20 dollar knife. I think I'm gonna get the other 2 in the series

Cons: Pocket Clip
Truly a "keeper"
This one is a "keeper". Construction is all steel and lock up is tight. Blade arrived shaving sharp. Blade deploys quickly and positively when "flipper" is used. Frame lock is sturdy enough to ensure user safety if knife is put to rough use. Design fits my medium size hand well. Thumb studs on blade do not deploy the blade well for me. I could do without them. I am not in love with the "deep carry" pocket clip as it can make removing the knife from the pocket slower than other knives I own. All in all, a very sturdy knife at a very reasonable price.

Great Knife for the price!!!
So far I have no complains about this knife. I use it multiple times a day, and it came from factory extremely sharp. The reason I give it 4/5 is because I have to resharpen the knife about every week. I have cleaned 30 ducks, and 2 deer with the knife so far, the ducks haven't dulled the knife but I found myself resharpening the knife after I cleaned each deer. I highly recommend this knife to anyone looking for a daily carry blade.
