Kershaw Launch 3 AUTO Folder 3.4" Black CPM-154 Drop Point Blade, Earth Brown Aluminum Handles - 7300EBBLK
KS7300EBBLK: Launch 3 AUTO, Earth Brown and Black
Got an automatic attraction? Then look into Kershaw's Launch 3. This automatic knife features CPM-154 blade steel, a strong opening kick, and is made-in-the-USA at Kershaw’s Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility.
The CPM-154 powdered metallurgy blade steel has a more uniform distribution of carbides—so it takes and holds an excellent edge. It also provides good corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness. The blade is black-oxide coated for an additional measure of blade protection and dark good looks. Then to lighten the Launch 3's weight, Kershaw made the handle of durable anodized aluminum and slimmed it toward the back end to neatly fit your hand. Carry left- or right-handed with the Launch 3's reversible pocket clip.
The Launch 3 opens with a push button, which is recessed so that it is level with the flat of the handle. This is a safety feature and makes it harder for the knives to accidentally deploy. Nevertheless, automatic knives are dangerous and should be handled with extreme caution in all circumstances.
- Push Button Lock - Found on the Kershaw Folding Saw, it locks the saw blade open during use, then releases with the push of a button.
- Made in the USA - When you see this on one of Kershaw's knives, it means the knife was made in Kershaw's Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.
