From the astute design and finish to the convenience it provides, the Amplitude is one of the best pocket knives available. The blade is a reliable 2.5 inches and easily retracts back into the handle, due to the speed safe mechanism.

Further, the steel handle is of great quality, aiding with grip and providing a stronger sense of durability. Those who purchase this specific knife will enjoy how it has been heat treated to add to strength and to ensure it remains in tip-top shape. Also, the specialized coatings of titanium carbo-nitride are extremely valuable to the overall structural appeal of this Kershaw blade. This is also easy to carry in any tactical case, or to add as an attachment to gear with the included pocket clip. Satisfaction is guaranteed!
