The Blue Anodize Handle for already popular Link. The missing link?between a quality, made-in-the-USA knife and a price most consumers can afford?has been found. Or, to be more precise, Kershaw is making it. Appropriately, it is called the Link and it has been given the patriotic model number of 1776. The sculpted lines and texture of the handle provide for a comfortable and secure grip. The Link feels big and solid in the hand and offers a clean look. The Link is made in Kershaw?s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Tualatin, Oregon.
