“Induction” is the production of a magnetic state due to proximity of a magnetized body. With its magnetic looks, that fits the Kershaw Induction, too. The blade has an attractive two-tone finish—the flats are satin finished and the grinds are black-oxide coated. The coating helps protect the steel and looks outstanding. Also outstanding is the Hawk Lock. Once the blade is open, it locks safely into position. To close the blade, pull the Hawk Lock slider back toward the knife butt and fold the blade in.

  • Outstanding looks and function
  • Secure Hawk Lock keeps blade safely open during use, closes easily
  • Quality 8Cr13MoV blade steel and a practical drop-point blade shape, two-tone finish; manual opening
  • Lightweight-yet-strong anodized aluminum handle, textured glass-filled nylon front insert for sure grip
