The Kershaw Clash 1605 is a 3-inch blade that is both stain and wear-resistant. The handle is made from glass-filled nylon to add texture for better grip. The Clash uses SpeedSafe assisted opening for easy opening with just one hand thanks to the flipper. You will be amazed at the solid feel, fast opening action, and generally awesome utility of this sweet blade. It’ll take on boxes, heavy plastic, rope, or whatever you need without complaint. The blade has plenty of belly and just the slightest hint of a recurve to improve slicing without being hard to sharpen. Once opened, the blade is secured by a locking liner and releases easily when your task is done. The Clash’s handle is somewhat wider and thicker and has a deep index finger indentation. The combination makes for a knife that provides an extremely secure grip.
