Do the Shuffle!

Whatever your style of shuffle is(old school vs new) Kershaw has come out with their own. No it’s not a dance, it’s a knife!   

Not big at all, but with just a 2.375 inch blade, it’s big enough for some chores. I know, I know, you might be asking why review this knife? But you only have to pick it up. The handle can fit most hands surprisingly well because the finger contours just work. And that’s the other thing, that glass filled nylon handle really lets you hang on and well…get a grip!  It’s K texture and it works.  

 The blade is rounded , hollow ground  and the weight is evenly distributed from front to back. The knife has a lanyard hole which is a great idea and it doubles as a screwdriver(flathead). 

  Get thirsty some days, need a bottle cap lifter to crack open that beverage? Yep it has that as well at the back of the knife.

Yes, it’s small, but a lot is packed into a great design. The pocket clip so far, just hangs on. It almost unnecessary as the Shuffle fits right down in the pocket or wherever you might choose to keep it. The blade when deployed, locks up tight and when folded back it centers nicely.  
Here some additional detail on the knife: 

Liner Lock

Thumbstud

Reversible pocketclip(it carries tip up)

Steel: 8Cr13MoV, bead-blasted finish

Handle: Glass-filled nylon, K-Texture™ grip

Blade length: 2.375″ (6 cm)

Closed length: 3.25″ (8.3 cm)

Overall length: 5.625″ (14.3 cm)

The thumbstud does open the knife but it’s smaller size makes it a bit harder to open one handed. Mine required a bit of a break-in period. This knife has been available since mid to late 2013. It’s a great bargain and most other reviews are quite favorable toward it. The knife comes in several different colors and most recently Kershaw has introduced a version II and I might just have to look at that one next.

I did my own review on this because this is a well designed knife that works.

  1. Sounds like a great knife. I have several Kershaw knives already and haven’t complained about any of them. Just might have to pick one of these up. Thanks for the great review Steve. I really like how the extras have been incorporated into this one.
