SWERVE, BUT DON'T MISS IT

You’re going to like this one. It’s designed to be a right-sized, tough, every day carrying and work knife.

The extra-wide, drop-point blade offers excellent slicing and will handle just about any other kind of cutting task as well. 8Cr13MoV stainless steel makes the blade sturdy and offers good edge-holding capabilities. Unusual jimping on the blade back adds style without being so aggressive that your thumb complains. A stonewashed finish hides scratches.

For a good grip, the Swerve has a contoured handle that "swerves" slightly to fit comfortably in the hand. Kershaw’s exclusive K-Texture™ on the handle enhances grip. The Swerve opens one-handed with SpeedSafe with either flipper or thumbstud. For convenient carrying, it also has a reversible, deep-carry clip.
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.
  • 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.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Cons: None
Versatile Knife
I switch this out as an EDC with my Kershaw Compound. Broad blade for slicing which also strengthens the tip. It opens quickly and cleanly and shows a razor sharp blade. I do yard work and landscaping. The Swerve is used a lot in such endeavors. I do all the cooking in our home and it makes for a nice food prep knife. Great knife overall. Only wish it was tip down carry. Down seems to allow my hand to find the flipper more naturally. Description says it can be changed, yet it cannot. Still a wonderful knife.

Cons: None
Very nice EDC blade
This is a very nice blade! Mine came very hair popping sharp. The assisted opening is very smooth and fast and it locks very solid. It fits very nice into the hand, although some with very large hands might not like it. The pocket clip rides very deep into the pocket. I've used it a couple of times so far having it and I like it a lot. Kershaw makes amazing products! and they stand by them.... BUY IT !!
