Kershaw Lifter – Badass Knife of the Week

Badass knives come in all shapes and sizes, but this tactical folder from Kershaw may have the quintessential look of the generally accepted image of a badass knife.

The Kershaw Lifter features a large 3.5-inch blade made of 4Cr14 stainless steel and a modified tanto profile and slight recurve that’ll leave you wondering why all knives don’t have the unique design. The profile offers a strong and piercing point with a curved belly to accomplish nearly any task with ease.

Here’s a quick overview from TheRealKnifeJunkie:

The knife also boasts the lightning fast SpeedSafe assisted-opening mechanism and a built-in flipper to engage the blade in a flash. Ambidextrous thumb studs can also be used to propel the blade open.

A frame lock is integrated into the stainless steel handle with indentations to offer a better grip. While it may not have the look of a comfortable EDC, the ergonomics are well-considered and feels great in the hand, thanks to the grooves, cutouts, and jimping.

To complete the overall look, the whole knife features a BlackWash finish that not only gives the knife a worn look but also protects the metal and conceals any future scratches.

The knife comes with a deep-carry pocket clip.
