A sturdy knife from Kershaw, one of the biggest names in every day carry knives
The Kershaw Barstow is a little wicked and a lot of value. It's a folding dagger and everything about this slim, sleek blade is simple, direct, and ready.
The straight spear-point blade, sharpened on a single side, is made of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with Kershaw's BackWash coating for a non-reflective, "already-broken-in" look. The coating not only helps protect the blade, but also hides use scratches. The handle has glass-filled nylon scales with heavy arrow-patterned texturing to enhance grip. A stout steel liner, also with non-reflective BackWash, provides an equally stout liner lock to secure the blade open during use.
Even better, the Barstow opens quickly and easily with SpeedSafe assisted opening and the built-in flipper. All the hardware is black - with the notable exception of the Kershaw Barstow's tube spacers, which are anodized blue for a touch of subtle color and eye-catching interest. For convenient discreet carry, the deep-carry pocket clip enables the knife to ride low in the pocket and is left/right reversible.
