The new Kershaw Grinder is designed to be put to work. To that end the Grinder offers a blade with a slightly curved belly for all-purpose cutting and slicing. A clipped tanto-inspired tip offers excellent piercing capabilities too. If you need to bear down on the back of the blade during a particularly tough cutting job the concave spine with heavy jimping provides additional grip security. The work-ready blade is made of 4Cr13 steel for solid service. The Grinder is always ready to go to work quickly thanks to our SpeedSafe assisted opening and convenient built-in flipper. A secure liner lock keeps the blade securely open during work until the user releases it. The glass-filled nylon handle is ergonomically contoured to fit the hand securely and grooved to offer an extra-secure grip. The deep-carry pocketclip is easily reversible for tip-down right- or left-handed carry.
