The black serrated Clash is a 3-inch blade that is both stain and wear resistant. The blade is black-oxide coated and partially serrated. 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. The Clash goes to the dark side in the black Clash. In addition to a drop-point blade with just the right amount of belly recurve for excellent slicing ability; the black Clash also has partial serration so that it can laugh at tough materials like webbing or rope. A locking liner locks provides a safe, secure, and solid blade lockup. As with all Kershaw knives, the black Clash is built with precision and offers the fit and finish you?ve come to expect from Kershaw. This Clash offers plenty of style, a multi-tasking blade shape, and the satisfaction of SpeedSafe opening in a value-priced knife.
