Like the other knives inspired by the original Zero Tolerance 0777, the Bareknuckle, model 7777OLBW, is based on the style of our original award-winning design, but this one offers a slimmed down profile and upgraded materials. And it’s a built-in-the-USA beauty.
The blade is Sandvik 14C28N, a blade steel that was originally created through a Kershaw–Sandvik partnership to produce this high-performance steel. Increased nitrogen in the formula enables 14C28N to provide excellent corrosion resistance and the ability to be hardened to 58–60 Rockwell. Sandvik calls 14C28N the overall highest performing knife steel in the world that still maintains the productivity benefit of being fine-blankable. The 7777OLBW’s blade has Kershaw’s BlackWash finish for additional blade protection and to help hide use scratches.
The Bareknuckle comes with handsome, anodized-aluminum handles in olive. And like our popular Knockout, the Bareknuckle features Kershaw’s patented Sub-Frame Lock to lighten in-pocket weight and to ensure safe blade lock up while in use. The blade opens manually with Kershaw’s KVT ball-bearing system and a flipper. For an additional touch of style, the blade rotates out of the handle on an oversized pivot. We complete the Bareknuckle with a reversible, deep-carry pocketclip for convenient carry on the left or right.
