This unique, patented design provides the strength and stability of a fixed blade knife, yet stores as compactly as a folding knife. The key is Kershaw’s "Out the Front" design. With OTF, the blade slides out the front of the handle into a secure, fixed-blade position and locks open upon withdrawal. Nothing else needs to be done, flipped, pushed, etc. The blade simply appears in your hand ready for use. A convenient belt clip sheath doubles as the OTF deployment system to engage or disengage the locking function. It takes a little practice, but soon becomes a natural, one-hand procedure when clipped to your belt or webbing. Right or left hand carry. The blade is Sandvik 13C26 stainless steel for strength and superior edge retention, while the Tungsten DLC coating enhances performance and looks good doing it. The Ripcord's handle is lightweight anodized aluminum with Trac-Tec inserts for a secure grip.
