K3880BW: Thermite BlackWashed Framelock Flipper Spring Assisted Knife
The Kershaw Thermite, designed by Rick Hinderer, has a BlackWash finish. BlackWash gives a knife that already-broken-in look--like a favorite well-worn pair of jeans. The coating provides an extra measure of protection for the metal, and the BlackWash helps hide any additional scratches you may put on the knife during normal use.
The Thermite's tactical styling and practical performance give users Rick Hinderer's no-nonsense functionality--but with enough style to be an exceptionally eye-catching knife. BlackWash just makes it more so.
The 3.5-in. blade is hollow-ground, providing excellent slicing ability. A flat-ground "spanto" tip offers strong piercing and even prying capabilities. A machined G-10 front scale and a heavily textured backspacer add to the Thermite's striking looks. On the practical side, the back handle is stainless steel with a frame lock and lockbar stabilizer for an always-secure lockup.
For lightning fast easy opening, the Thermite is equipped with SpeedSafe Spring Assist, which can be accessed with the ambidextrous flipper or thumbstud. Kershaw's four-position deep-carry pocketclip offers complete carrying versatility.
