Sure, it’s small — but what’s important is how you use it. [That’s what she said.] the Kershaw Launch 10 is called “The Claw” by the folks at Kershaw HQ, for reasons that should be obvious. The size, weight, and design features make it an excellent little Everyday Carry knife — maybe the handiest of the entire Kershaw Launch series.
As Kershaw Knives explains,
“The curved blade and the positioning of the razor-sharp tip make it especially handy when opening or breaking down boxes. Rope or cording is also easily mastered with the superb pull-cutting capabilities of the Kershaw Launch 10.
The curved blade is made of CPM 154 steel with a stonewashed finish. The powdered metallurgy steel takes and holds an excellent edge, offers good corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness. And while the claw-shaped blade curves downward, the handle—built of strong-yet-lightweight anodized aluminum—sweeps up. This balances the overall look of the knife and provides a secure grip.”
More from the manufacturer:The integrated backspacer includes a large lanyard hole and the Launch 10’s deep-carry pocket clip is left/right reversible (tip-up). A push-button on the handle opens the knife quickly. Push the button again to release the blade and fold it back into the handle.
