Kershaw’s Starter (1301BW) Assisted Folder …

The Starter’s design is machined and complex … yet smoothly functional. The BlackWash finish gives it a rough-and-tumble look. The coating provides an extra measure of protection for the metal, and the BlackWash helps hide any additional scratches you put on the knife during normal use. It is equipped with SpeedSafe® assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. It opens neatly with the built-in flipper or ThumbStud. A LinerLock safely secures the blade open during use and then closes easily for storage or carry.
