A WIDE BLADE WONDER

The little guy’s always the toughest. That’s certainly true of our Half-Ton. The short, chubby blade works on and on.

A wider blade like the Half-Ton’s is designed for easier slicing. In a utility knife, that means everything from slicing open a box to cutting up some apple slices to go with lunch. The Half-Ton’s blade is stout and on the shorter side at just 2 1/2 inches. Nevertheless, this solid, tough knife is perfect for most jobs around the shop or garage. We gave the Half-Ton a high grind to slim the blade, so even though the blade is quite wide, it still moves through whatever you’re cutting with ease.

A locking liner secures the blade open when in use and releases easily. Jimping on the top of the handle provides additional purchase for your thumb and an index-finger contour fits the hand securely. To make the Half-Ton even easier to hang onto, Kershaw adds glass-reinforced nylon handles with grippy, non-slip inserts. The handles are extra-sturdy and impact resistant.

And just for grins, we complete the package with our patented Wrench Clip, the pocket clip shaped like a mini-wrench.

Great Knife
I just received the Kershaw Half Ton and boy for 13.00 its the best money I have spent on a knife.I own 6 Kershaw all made in the USA, this is the first Kershaw that is made in China and so far so good. It is SUPER SHARP out of the box (you can shave with it) Its built really good Its very easy to open and close. I use it for my EDC and if I lose it no big deal...

Great little knife but...
Nice little folder but why make 3(half, 3/4 & one ton). They're all so close in size it seems illogical to have three when one would suffice.

Excellent small knife
I bought this a possible replacement for my Boker Subcom. This knife is almost perfect for my purposes. Sharp out of the box, locked up tight, no blade play. Very handsome knife for the money. I will buy more of these.
