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 little Blade
I carry several knives with me daily. Kershaw always has nice quality blades. The Half Ton in red is a very nice addition to my collection. Great feel in my hand, easy to open, without spring assist. The picture does not match the color red you get in the box. Now that I have the Half Ton, I think I will get the One Ton as well.

Great little knife
I originally bought both the Half Ton & Three Quarter Ton to throw one in the glovebox of both family cars. Was really impressed by the robustness and sharpness out of the box. I especially liked the feel and balance of the Half Ton. For kicks I decided to temporarily use it as an EDC... just to test it out. I really do use it every day, and because it's so inexpensive, sometimes pretty hard. It's probably been a year now and it's replaced my old knife. I always remove the pocket clips of my knives and just drop them in my pocket. The rubber inserts on the handles help the knife stay in place better both in the pocket and my hand. The blade opens easily using the thumb studs and locks solidly in place with the liner lock.
