Kershaw Knives
 
AMPLE STYLE & FUNCTION IN A SMALLER POCKETKNIFE

Kershaw and Todd Rexford have teamed up to bring you a smaller pocketknife with plenty of style: the Amplitude 2.5. As you might guess, the Amplitude 2.5 features a 2.5-inch blade. When closed, the knife is a compact 3.5 inches long.

The Amplitude 2.5’s blade is heat treated to Kershaw’s demanding specifications to bring out the very best qualities in the steel. A machine satin finish on the blade and cool, grey titanium carbo-nitride coating on the steel handle give the Amplitude 2.5 a sophisticated look. For easy carry, a left/right reversible pocketclip is included.

This no-nonsense smaller knife offers simple, clean lines, a drop-point blade, and a smooth all-steel handle. So that the Amplitude 2.5 is ready when needed, it can be opened one-handed thanks to SpeedSafe® assisted opening accessed with the handy, built-in flipper.

Easy to carry in pocket, briefcase, or backpack, the Amplitude packs a lot of style into a smaller package.
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.
  • 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: Weight, Pocket Clip, Blade Sharpness
Kershaw 3870 Knife
Well made. Everything is tight and works properly. It was not as sharp as I have come to expect from a Kershaw knife. I have a number of Kershaw's and up to this one all arrived razor sharp. This one did not and required sharpening right away. The pocket clip is also very stiff and hard to use. Also, for a EDC pocketknife it's a bit on the heavy side although that is somewhat offset by having a pocket clip and not just loose in the pocket.

Cool knife!
Nice sized sharp blade for my pocket! It's my new EDC carry for general use. The knife feels comfortable in the hand, it's slim, light and quick blade deployment is possible! It appears that it's well designed and well made....I'm sold!
