A thermite is a mixture that, when ignited, produces a huge amount of heat.
That’s exactly what Kershaw expects to happen in the marketplace with the introduction of the new Thermite from custom knifemaker Rick Hinderer.
With tactical styling and practical performance, the Thermite is a mixture of great looks and great features. Rick Hinderer and Kershaw designed it to give users Rick Hinderer’s no-nonsense functionality—but with enough style to be an exceptionally eye-catching knife.
The 3 1/2-in. stonewashed blade is hollow-ground, providing excellent slicing ability. A flat-ground “spanto” tip offers strong piercing and even prying capabilities. A machined G-10 front scale and a heavily textured backspacer add to the Thermite’s striking looks. On the practical side, the back handle is stainless steel with a frame lock and lockbar stabilizer for an always-secure lockup.
For easy opening, the Thermite is equipped with SpeedSafe, which can be accessed with the ambidextrous flipper or thumbstud. Kershaw’s Quad-Carry/deep-carry pocketclip offers complete carrying versatility.
The Thermite (model 3880) retails for $54.95.
