The Clash goes to the dark side in the new black Clash. In addition to a drop-point blade with just the right amount of belly recurve for excellent slicing ability, the black Clash also has partial serration so that it can laugh at tough materials like webbing or rope. The blade steel is 8Cr13MoV for toughness, wear resistance, and excellent edge retention. Black oxide coating enhances corrosion resistance and provides a great non-reflective look. The black Clash opens with ease and authority thanks to Kershaw’s SpeedSafe assisted opening system. The textured glass-filled nylon handle scales offer a solid grip as the handle contours nestle securely into the hand. A locking liner locks provides a safe, secure and solid blade lockup. This Clash offers plenty of style, a multi-tasking blade shape, and the satisfaction of SpeedSafe opening in a value-priced knife.
