KS3880: 3880 Thermite
Kershaw Knives
 
TACTICAL AND PRACTICAL

A thermite is a mixture that, when ignited, produces a huge amount of heat. And we think you'll agree, the Thermite is hot.

With tactical styling and practical performance, the Thermite, designed by Rick Hinderer, has a great look and great features. The Thermite offers Rick's no-nonsense functionality, but with enough style that co-workers will look on with a satisfying touch of envy when you take the Thermite out of your pocket.

The 3 1/2-in. stonewashed blade is hollow-ground for excellent slicing capabilities with a flat-ground "spanto" tip for strong piercing. A machined G-10 front scale and a heavily textured backspacer add to the Thermite's good looks. On the practical side, the back handle is stainless steel with a frame lock and lockbar stabilizer. 

For easy opening, the Thermite is SpeedSafe-equipped and can be accessed with the ambidextrous flipper or thumbstud. It comes equipped with Kershaw's Quad-Carry/deep-carry pocketclip.
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.
  • Quad-carry - The user may position the pocketclip for tip-up or tip-down, left- or right-handed carry.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Lock Type
Cons: None
One of the best values out there.
For $40 this knife is worth the price. At the current Knifecenter sale price of $25 you'd be a fool not to pick one up as a spare work/beater knife, because you can't beat that deal. It's a quality design, and a whole lot of knife for that price. With great assisted flipper action to boot.

Kershaw 3880 Thermite Assisted 3-1/2" Stonewash Plain Blade
I just recieved the Kershaw 3880 Thermite. The edge is very sharp, and the blade flips out with a nice snap, locking solid until released. It is a sizable blade, and will be my EDC. The flat-ground tip seems to be very strong, and this blade has more than just slashing as it's purpose. The above mentioned tip makes it a very tool-like blade, and the thickness of the spine combined with the design of the hollow grind makes for excellent strength. I haven't purchased a "pocket-knife" for many yuears, and I was not disappointed by this product; it is a great Hinderer design.

Kershaw 3880 Thermite
One of the nicest $30 knives I have purchased so far. Has a lot of features that other expensive EDC knives have for a fraction of the cost. Sharp blade, great locking mechanism, and the g10 handles give you a firm grip.
