The Kershaw Brawler starts with a modified tanto blade-a shape often found in tactical and rescue knives that may be required to punch through tough materials. The Brawler's swedge helps narrow the blade, adding to its piercing power. At the same time, the Brawler's straight belly offers excellent cutting capacity, is perfect for bearing down on a task, and is easy to resharpen. The angled handle curves into the palm of the user's hand. Jimping on the back of the blade offers additional traction. With the blade deployed, the flipper doubles as a finger guard and provides additional hand protection during knife use. For fast and easy one-handed opening, the Brawler is equipped with SpeedSafe. Just pull back on the blade protrusion and the SpeedSafe assisted opening system takes over, moving the blade out of the handle, ready for use. Sturdy glass-filled nylon handle scales, a secure locking liner, and our four-position Quad-Carry pocket clip make the Brawler a pleasure to carry and use.
