    Detail

    The Deadline opens with Kershaw's KVT ball-bearing system. But a manual system like that has to have detent often strong detent to keep the blade in the handle until the user opens it. When the blade is fully closed, a depression in the blade is engaged by a ball partially embedded in the liner or handle. The interaction of ball and depression keeps the blade closed. The problem with that is that sometimes the detent is too strong to make opening the knife comfortable. The answer is our new Tuned Detent System (TDS).

    TDS puts the detent ball on the front scale of the knife in an inset steel plate. This plate enables us to fine tune the detent so that it's perfect not too heavy, not too light. With TDS, opening a manual flipper knife like this is as easy as opening any other flipper.

    Both blade and handle feature our two-toned finish. In this case, we used grey PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating in the grinds and hollows and a satin finish on the flats. The result is a knife with a very distinctive look that walks the line between classy and tactical.

    The 8Cr13MoV blade is a modified Wharncliffe with a top swedge. The handles are two-tone-finished steel with cold-forged handle texture for a solid grip. A strong frame lock secures the blade open during use. We also added a decorative glass-filled nylon backspacer in matte black and a moveable steel filler tab so the look is nicely detailed and neatly finished. The pocketclip is Kershaw's deep-carry pocketclip so that the knife rides comfortably low in your pocket.

    Specification:

        • Flipper: May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The flipper is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
        • Manual: There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
        • Frame Lock: A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
        • Reversible: Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
