The popular USA Made 1776 Link assisted flipper from Kershaw Knives has been upgraded with a Blue anodized handle and BlackWash finished blade. The size, shape and dependability has made the Link a successful addition to the Kershaw lineup. This blue stunner is no exception.
Brand new directly from Kershaw Knives, USA.
The Blade: The blade shape of the Link has been quite popular over the last few years. It is an upswept drop point with a nice slicing belly. It offers a true point for piercing and the every day utility of a drop point. Slicing, dicing, skinning and everything in between. It really is an every man's blade shape...and it looks cool. This one has been upgraded to a black-oxide BlackWash finish. This steel gets a black-oxide coating prior to a heavy tumbling for a truly unique appearance. It will hide the wear and tear of daily cutting plus turn some heads. It is damn sharp and absolutely rockets out of its handle thanks to Kershaw's SpeedSafe Assisted Opening mechanism.
The Handle: Navy Blue anodized aluminum handle scales are smooth and well-contoured to ensure a comfortable grip. They are secured to full length sturdy stainless steel liners with one forming the locking mechanism. It has a 3/4 length ridged black backspacer for support and aiding in your hold on the Link. The back side has an engraved US Flag proudly displayed.
The 1776 Link Navy Blue BlackWash from Kershaw comes with a black/tumbled pocket clip for tip up carry that is reversible for lefty's. A generous lanyard hole machined into the handle spine is a nice touch.
