The new Kershaw Fringe is out of the mainstream and anything but boring. With its gray titanium carbo-nitride coating on both blade and handle, as well as an attention-getting carbon-fiber insert, the Fringe is already a very attractive EDC. But it's the things you don't see at first glance that make it even better. To ensure a comfortable carry, Kershaw has thinned the back handle, making the Fringe lighter than you'd expect for an all-steel pocketknife. A deep-carry clip enables you to carry it securely in the pocket, yet access is easy when you need it. The blade is 8Cr13MoV, a top-quality steel, precision heat-treated by Kershaw to bring out its high-performance qualities. It takes and holds an edge well, then resharpens easily. The gray coating further protects the blade from corrosion and gives it a sophisticated look. The blade opens quickly and easily with SpeedSafe assisted opening and the flipper or built-in thumb stud. The Fringe's handle is titanium carbo-nitride coated in gray with a large carbon-fiber insert that catches the light-and catches the eye. The blade locks securely in place during use thanks to a sturdy frame lock. Black hardware completes the classy look.
- Speedsafe assisted opening - assists you to open any SpeedSafe knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper, built into many Kershaw best sellers
- Flipper or thumb stud - may be used on either manual or assisted opening knives, the flipper is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle
- Frame lock - a portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use, this is a safety feature of the knife
- Single-position deep-carry pocketclip (right, tip-down) - the pocketclip is in a fixed position on the knife handle, usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary
- Lanyard hole
