This is the one you add to your truck box, toss in your go-bag, or slip into the pocket of your tactical pants. Everything about it says, “practical, reliable, and sturdy.” This right-sized knife fits comfortably in the hand, but offers a bigger blade than you might expect. The broad blade provides efficient slicing while the clipped point delivers good piercing capability. Made of quality 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, the Faultline’s blade is black-oxide coated to give it a tactical look while adding an extra layer of corrosion protection.
The handle is olive drab glass-filled nylon with a rubberized, super-grippy and textured overmold. Heavy jimping on the blade back adds additional grip. To bring this knife in at an adventure-ready weight, Kershaw adds an inset liner lock, which provides the blade-lockup security of a locking liner with less bulk and at a lighter weight.
The knife opens with a flipper and our KVT ball-bearing opening system. There’s no need for a mechanical assist; KVT makes it smooth and easy to open one-handed. A single-position, deep-carry pocketclip ensures the knife rides securely inside your pocket.
