Kershaw 7551 Launch 18 AUTO

Sharp, light, and blazing fast, the Launch 18 boosts to the top of your wish list. Its spear point blade uses high-performance CPM-154 blade steel for a reliable cutting edge. The full-flat grind sharpens reliably every time for a thin, slicey edge. Use the Launch 18 effectively with the ergonomic, contoured design. Kershaw even added extra touches like a gray-anodized handle coating, a ceramic bead-blasted titanium pivot trim ring, and an integrated backspacer. A reversible, deep-pocket pocket clip makes it even easier to EDC this lightweight auto.
