Description: The Kershaw Knockout (1870) delivers knockout good looks and top performance at an affordable price.
The Knockout gets its namesake from the “knocked out” section in the handle. This knocked-out piece in the anodized aluminum frame is replaced with a stainless-steel plate to form Kershaw's Sub-Frame Lock. This steel plate moves behind the knife blade to lock it open safely and securely. Because only part of the knife handle or frame is steel, the Knockout can maintain a lighter fighting weight and still provide a strong lock. The result is a knife that’s big, yet lightweight enough to carry every day. The Kershaw Sub-Frame Lock is covered under US Patent 9,120,234.
The blade is a modified drop point in high-performance Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel with a stonewash finish. The steel offers excellent corrosion resistance and hardenability, while the stonewash helps hide any scratches added to the blade from use.
The Knockout (1870) is equipped with SpeedSafe® assisted opening for smooth and easy one-handed opening. Just pull back on the built-in flipper or push on the thumbstuds and the blade moves out of the handle quickly and easily.
The Knockout also comes with Kershaw’s deep-carry pocketclip so the knife can sit all the way down in the pocket. Even better, the handle is drilled for 3-position carry. Lightweight and versatile, this Knockout is sure to be an ongoing favorite.
