DescriptionKS1870OLDAM: 1870OLDAM Knockout Damascus, OliveKershaw KnivesTHE KNOCKOUT PACKS AN EVEN BIGGER PUNCH IN OLIVE & BLACK
The Kershaw Knockout certainly is just that... a knockout. This US made frame lock features such time tested features as SpeedSafe assisted opening, ambidextrous flipper, and four-position pocket clip. It moves beyond the original Knockout by sporting olive drab handles and a black DLC coated blade!The original Knockout continues to deliver knockout good looks and top performance. But now we've kicked it up a notch with an olive-green handle and Damascus blade.The olive and Damascus Knockout still has its namesake "knocked out" section in the handle. This knocked-out piece in the anodized aluminum frame is replaced with a stainless steel plate to form the sub-frame lock. This steel plate moves behind the knife blade to lock it open safely and securely. Yet because only part of the knife handle or frame is steel, the Knockout can maintain a lighter fighting weight and still provide a strong lock. The result is a knife that's big, yet lightweight enough to carry every day.The Knockout is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening for smooth and easy one-handed opening. Just pull back on the built-in flipper or push on the thumb stud and the blade moves out of the handle quickly and easily.The Knockout also comes with Kershaw's deep-carry pocket clip so the knife can sit all the way down in the pocket. Even better, the handle is drilled for 4-position carry. Lightweight and versatile, this Knockout provides a new color combination that will make it an ongoing favorite.
