At the 2007 Blade Show, Kershaw introduced an innovative twist on knife blade construction. They developed a process where they fuse two different steels together to create a blade. The primary purpose for creating a blade in this manner is to allow the manufacturer to use a lesser quality steel for the spine and one of the more expensive high performance steels for the cutting edge. A side effect is the unique looking blade that is created.
The Rake features a tough, wear-resistant D2 cutting edge with high-performance Sandvik 14C28N for the spine. Designed by Tim Galyean, a custom knife maker from Oregon. This knife is easily opened by using Kershaw's Flipper, a one-handed, ambidextrous index-finger opening system. A walker lock secures the blade in place and a removable pocket clip keeps it close at hand. With a hardness of 58-60 Rc, the clip point blade measures 3-1/2". Handle is textured black G-10 that measures 4-5/8". Weighs 4.8 oz. Made in the USA. Suggested Retail $139.95.
