Back in the day, the term budget was synonymous with cheap. These days, you can get a budget-friendly knife that’s built as good as some of the more pricey knives.

Take our latest Badass Knife of the Week, for example.

The Kershaw Fraxion — a collaboration between the esteemed brand and Danish knifemaker Jens Anso — is a lightweight folder with a streamlined design.

The knife features a 2.75-inch clip point blade with a BlackWash finish that springs open with the help of a manual flipper mechanism. The size and blade profile make the 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blade versatile and easy to carry anywhere.

Light but durable G-10 handle scales are covered with carbon fiber overlays that give the Fraxion a sleek look and provide a better tactile experience. An inset liner lock within the handle ensures the blade stays open without adding extra weight.

Nearly every aspect of the knife works in concert with one another to create a folder that’s complete, well-designed, and perfect for EDC. Features like a swedge, a functional pocket clip, smooth action from the KVT ball-bearings, and a weight under 2 ounces are just icing on the cake.
