Kershaw Knives
The Kershaw Barricade is a value-priced rescue knife with standout features & standout color.

A bulwark against unpreparedness, the Barricade has all the key features needed in an emergency knife all wrapped up in a bright orange “see me” package. A carbide glass breaker is built into the butt end. The sculpted glass-filled nylon handle offers a secure grip whether in glass-striking position or when using the blade. If needed to free a trapped victim, the built-in cord-cutter will zip through seat belts and cord quickly and easily.

The blade steel is 8Cr13MoV, which can take and hold a sharp edge, yet resharpens easily. Kershaw’s skilled heat treatment brings out the best in this top-value steel. The blade is black oxide coated to add an extra measure of protection from the elements. A secure liner lock keeps the blade locked safely open during use, then closes easily when your tasks are done.

The modified clip-point blade opens one-handed with SpeedSafe assisted opening and the flipper. For convenient carry, it also features a deep-carry pocket clip that enables the knife to ride securely low in your pocket.
  • Multifunction: Has multiple blades or tools, enabling it to perform multiple functions.
  • 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 Assisted Opening: 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.
  • Single Position: The pocket clip is in a fixed position on the knife handle; usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary.

Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: Pocket Clip, None
May not be strong enough for first responders, but is a good EDC knife for the average city dweller. Good car console carrier/emergency escape tool. Wish it had more positions for pocket clip. Various color options would be great. 8cr13Mov blade steel is really good, very sharp. I'm always picking it up as my daily rotation for minor cutting tasks.

Do not trust your life (or others) to this knife
30+ years in public safety. I carried the same Spyderco Police model for 25 of them. Never had any issues. When I saw this Kershaw, I thought the bright orange handle and ergonomics were worthy of a try. Second day at work with this thing and needed to cut deployed airbags to remove an entrapped occupant. Blade dulled very quickly and then cracked at the half way point on the sharpened edge. Knife now has a huge triangular chunk missing from the blade. This knife may work for some, but it is definitely NOT a tool that can be relied upon when it really matters.

Not so good so far
FF/EMT of 17yrs . As soon as the Barricade came in I noticed the blade wasn't centered in the closed position and pointing to the right really bad when opened and looking down on the spine. Pivot pin screw was loose and the scale at the top near the pivot pin was loose. As I tightened the pivot pin the blade centered up better and the scale was tight but now it's not a flipper and barely opens . As it loosened itself up during use it became easier to flip open but now the original problems are back and I think the pivot screw is stripped . Don't recommend it
