A brawl is defined by chaos and conflict. With the Kershaw Brawler, you get something that’s strong and reliable even when things get rough and unpredictable.

The heart of the Brawler is its blade. At 3 inches, the black-coated blade is a perfect size for everyday carry and doesn’t take up much space in the pocket. Although the 8Cr13MoV stainless steel is a budget steel, it performs well while boasting excellent rust resistance.

The Brawler’s modified tanto point is exceptionally versatile. Unlike the standard American tanto which features an abrupt angle toward the point, the Brawler’s profile has a more subtle curve. This gives the user more edge to cut in one long pull.

Springing to life with the aid of Kershaw’s SpeedSafe assisted-opening mechanism, the blade can be engaged with either the thumb stud or flipper tab and locks securely with a liner.

The all-black handle is unquestionably utilitarian. It is bordered by angled curves that conform to the palm while the flipper tab provides a finger guard for additional protection during hard use.

The texture of the glass-filled nylon scales makes wielding the knife in different environments natural. Finally, the knife comes with a four-position pocket clip, so you can carry the 3.9-ounce knife the way you want.
