Kershaw 1730SS Zing Folding Knife Assisted 3" Bead Blast Plain Blade, Stainless Steel Handles
KS1730SS: 1730SS Zing
This iteration of the popular "first generation" Zings designed by RJ Martin.
What's different? First of all, this Zing is all stainless steel, from pointy tip to handle butt. Just smooth, sleek, bead-blasted steel all the way down. The blade is high-quality 8CR13MoV stainless steel, heat treated to Kershaw specifications to bring out the very best in the steel—strength, hardness, and the ability to take and hold a wicked edge. The modified drop-point blade offers superior slicing and utility capabilities.
To give this Zing even more, well, zing, Kershaw has added SpeedSafe assisted opening. Just pull back on the ambidextrous flipper and the blade moves out of the handle, quickly and easily. You can also access the Zing's SpeedSafe feature with a simple push on the thumbstud. Either way, your Zing is ready to go quickly and easily.
As a frame lock knife, the Zing SS is slimmer than previous liner lock Zings and rides even more comfortably in your pocket. The handle is drilled so that you can position the pocketclip for either tip-up or tip-down. And, of course, there's a handy lanyard hole. The Zing SS is a value priced, every day carrying knife with a clean look and lots of style.

Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
Stainless Steel knife handles provide strength and durability while using chromium oxide to create a rust-resistant barrier.
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.
