The Kershaw Starter Flipper Knife 1301BW features a blackWash finish that gives it a rough and used look, but dont be fooled the coating provides an extra measure of protection for the metal, and the BlackWash helps hide daily use scuffs and scratches. The Starter features the SpeedSafe assisted opening for fast and easy one-handed opening. It opens neatly with the built-in flipper or thumbstud. A liner lock safely secures the blade open during use, and then closes easily for storage or carry. Also included is a deep-carry pocketclip so the knife rides comfortably low in the pocket for discreet carry.
