Kershaw Knives

The Thermite and the Scrambler are great Kershaw models...great prices, great designs, and great quality. The addition of blackwash to the blade finish give these patterns a really cool profile, almost a menacing look. However you describe it, you're gonna like carrying it, and using it, for a long time!
The Scrambler is a cool and classy knife to begin with. But now Kershaw has added an extra measure of cool with their BlackWash finish. BlackWash gives a knife that already-broken-in look—like a favorite well-worn pair of jeans. The coating also provides an extra measure of protection for the metal and helps hide any additional scratches you may put on the knife during normal use.

Designed by RJ Martin, the Scrambler’s drop-point blade is hollow-ground so it breezes through slicing tasks, while the large flat-ground top swedge adds to its good looks.

The blade steel offers strength and good edge retention. All the metal on the knife—blade, front bolster, and handle back are BlackWash finished. The comfortable, secure-grip handle features textured G-10 on the front side and a sturdy frame lock on the other. The bolster is extended to provide forefinger protection and to ensure the knife sits firmly in the hand during use.

The Scrambler opens quickly and easily with the ambidextrous flipper and SpeedSafe assisted opening. It includes a reversible pocketclip for left- or right-handed carry.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Frame Lock
Frame Lock
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.
Pocket Clip

8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel
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.

Pros: Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Weight, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Handle Material, None
I use the knife for general work every day. The look is different and cool. I would like it to have a handle material other than steel.

Wonderful knife!
I have yet to find something I dont like about this knife. Right out of the box it has a mean, menacing look and great feel in the hand. It is well balanced and ergonomically thought through. Like all the Kershaw knives ive owned it came razor sharp and ready to work. The speed assist opens smoothly with a flick of the flipper and closes easily with the liner lock. This knife only requires one hand to both open and close. The only critique I can give is that it lacks some form of traction for the thumb when placed on the spine at the base of the blade. All in all a great knife that has instantly replaced my Booker as my favorite EDC. Great job Kershaw and much credit to the designer RJ Martin!
