Kershaw Launch 5 Automatic - StoneWash Blade
Designed by Emerson and USA built by Kershaw, this fast action auto takes Emerson's tactical looks to the next level of refinement for personal style.
The CPM154 powdered metallurgy blade steel has more uniform distribution of carbides - so it holds an excellent edge. It also provides good corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness.
The blade is StoneWashed for stylish looks and to hide everyday use scratches.
A machined texture on the handle provides a secure grip and to lighten the Launch 5's weight, the handles and integrated backspacers are made of durable anodized aluminum.
The pocketclip is a reversible tip-up carry that's ambidexterous. Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change the tip position.
For left-handed use, use your index finger instead of your thumb to press the blade-release/lock button. The Launch 5 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 can be dangerous and should be handled with extreme caution in all circumstances.
