Designed by custom knife maker Tim Galyean, the Kershaw Launch 7 sports a grey anodized aluminum handle with machined contours on the top and bottom to give it a modern, industrial aesthetic while also ensuring a solid grip. The backspacer is fully integrated into the handle to add to the solid feel and appealing look of the knife.
Meanwhile, the Kershaw Launch 7 features a DLC (Diamond-like carbon)-coated, 3.75-inch clip-point blade made from CPM 154 steel for enhanced toughness, grindability and polishability, not to mention corrosion resistance and edge retention.
The Kershaw Launch 7 can be opened easily via the push of a button, which locks the blade open and into place. To release the lock, push the button again and fold the blade back into the handle. The included pocket clip is left/right reversible for pocket carry.
