The Kershaw Highball Manual Folding Knife 7010 features clean, sleek lines coupled with a high-performance blade made of D2 steel. The steel on the Highball is durable, wear resistant, and has superb edge retention. The blade has a two-toned finish: machine stain on the grinds and gray PVD on a recessed groove in the blade upper. This knife is a one-handed, manual opener which can be accessed via the recessed groove in the handle like you would a thumb stud. But because there is no thumb stud, the Highball retains its streamlined look. The steel handle is contoured for a comfortable grip. The blue accent comes from the custom trim ring that surrounds the pivot.
