Kershaw Launch 9 Automatic 7250 - CPM-154 Blade - Black Anodized Aluminum Handle
At first glance Kershaw's Launch 9 might look like a smaller version of their best-selling Launch 2, however the Launch 9 has its own special appeal. Its compact size makes it easy to carry, and appropriate in a variety of situations where you wouldn’t pull out a more aggressive-looking knife that might frighten "non-knife" types. It offers a refined look; a gentleman’s automatic you might say.
The Launch 9’s drop-point blade is CPM 154 with a “working” finish. This finish is somewhat rougher than stonewashed and meant to easily hide the scuffs and scratches that a working knife earns as it does its job. CPM 154 steel takes and holds an excellent edge, offers good corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness.
As in the rest of Kershaw's Launch series, the Launch 9’s handle is anodized aluminum. In this case, it’s anodized in basic matte black for everyday good looks. A push-button on the handle opens the knife quickly. Push the button again to release the blade to fold it back into the handle.
Rounding out the Launch 9's features is an integrated backspacer with a lanyard hole, perfect for a paracord attachment, and a reversible (left/right, tip-up) pocket clip.
