This updated classic Kershaw Knife is designed to work well and last a long time. At only 3.5 ounces, the Kershaw Blackout Serrated won't weigh you down. The special polyimide handle material decreases the weight significantly. The blackened blade and solid black handle provide for stealth when you need it.
The removable stainless steel pocket clip allows for easy carrying. The partially serrated blade provides 3 times the cutting surface to saw through rope and fibrous materials in seconds while the straight edge on the Kershaw 1550ST allows for precision cutting. The blade on the Blackout is made of Sandvik 14C28N high carbon German Steel for allowing for a stronger blade that stays sharper longer.
The locking liner on the Blackout Serrated Knife secures the blade in the open position for safer use in the field. This also allows for one handed closing of the knife.
SpeedSafe is the Kershaw assisted-opening system built into the Blackout 1550ST, one of Kershaw's top Ken Onion knives. SpeedSafe helps the knife user to quickly open their Kershaw knife with a push on the blade's thumb stud.
