Inspired by the look of classic Italian stilettos, the Kershaw Launch 8 modernizes this traditional design for a new generation. The Launch 8 has the symmetrical lines of a stiletto, is very lightweight, being only 2.4 ounces, and is easy to carry.
The slim blade is sharpened on one side and has a deep top grind to lighten weight and add stiletto style. The pivot is sunk deep in the handle and covered by a carbon fiber insert to maintain symmetry. Integrated finger guards on the handle top and bottom keep fingers away from danger.
