Kershaw and custom knifemaker Les George took inspiration from a classic US World War II trench knife to create the XCOM. But instead of being a fixed blade, the XCOM is a convenient folder. Like its forebear, it features a symmetrical, spearpoint blade that’s great for piercing and cutting, yet is sharpened on only one side. The XCOM is a tough, durable workhorse.
