3 Holiday Gift Ideas from Kershaw for the Knife Nut on Your List

Even if you like giving practical gifts, you can do a lot better than a new sweater or a pair of socks this holiday season. Any gear enthusiast on your list can appreciate a new EDC knife to carry, use and admire every day. And this year’s offerings from Kershaw are sure to please. Kershaw produces innovative models year after year, both award-winning Kershaw Originals, as well as collaborations with respected knife designers. In this quick gift guide we’re highlighting three of our favorites from this year for their premium materials, unique features, and storied design appeal.

Inspired by the award-winning design of the Zero Tolerance 0777, the Bareknuckle gives knife enthusiasts access to the ergonomics of the original’s 3D-machined handles, in a more compact package at an affordable price. The Bareknuckle blade deploys via flipper tab on KVT ball bearings, ensuring smooth and quick access. The 3.5“ blade also features Sandvik 14C28N steel, chosen for its excellent corrosion resistance and hardness. It locks up into Kershaw's patented Sub-Frame Lock to handle tough tasks. Functionality and performance aside, this new release of the Bareknuckle features olive green aluminum scales contrasted with a BlackWash finish on the blade for some tactical flair. If you’re looking to gift a classic re-imagined with a new blade finish and a unique color for the season, the made-in-USA Bareknuckle in olive and BlackWash is a great choice for the holidays.

The Seguin is a great opportunity for enthusiasts and collectors to own a design from renowned knifemaker Les George without breaking the bank. Its stainless steel handle gives it a substantial feel in the hand, while sporting a heavily machined texture, milled grooves and the fabled knifemaker’s index finger contour—all to help improve grip in different usage situations. The large, jimped flipper tab makes it easy to activate Kershaw’s SpeedSafe spring-assisted opening, whipping out a 3.1“ gray PVD-coated blade. This classy framelock knife rides securely in pocket via a deep carry clip with hidden screws, and the custom pivot point and backspacer serve as additional details that point to the rich heritage of this model.

Following the footsteps and the success of the California-legal Launch 4, the new sub 2-inch automatic Kershaw Launch 9 presents a more refined design akin to a gentleman’s carry. The 1.8-inch blade is made of corrosion-resistant CPM 154 stainless steel, with a “working” finish made to hide scuffs and scratches from everyday use. It features a stylish fuller groove and flies out via the push-button deployment that the Launch line is known for. The aluminum handle accommodates lanyard attachments for those looking for a little extra style and more purchase on its compact body, while a two position pocket clip gives the option for left or right side tip-up carry. For the knife connoisseur on your list, the Launch 9 is sure to impress with its compact size, refined looks and unique appeal—a “gentleman’s automatic” that’s in a class of its own. Be sure to check your recipient's local knife laws if an automatic knife like this is legal to carry, too.
