History
 
The story of this American knife company very mysterious. How was the company formed, why and under what circumstances — the exact information is not in the directory Kershaw, nor on the company's website. We only know that in 1974, Pete Kershaw organized the company in the "stab" U.S. state — Oregon in the city of Insolvent. This is the official information about the American manufacturer sharp tool ends. And all that we were able to collect are nuggets of information scattered around the Internet, directory, directories, periodicals, and published an interview.
 
In 1974, even in Oregon it was still possible to start your own knife business — the market wasn't oversaturated with products, and old companies with traditions and rich history resting on their laurels, quietly releasing their tested products for decades. Kershaw takes as the core competence of the direction for production folding knives. Blade use high quality steel (series 440-th steel, AUS-6A, AUS-8A, Sandvik 13C26, S30V blade, 420HC, etc.), and the handle made of plastic, steel, aluminum, polymers, etc D. The enterprise has developed, rose to his feet. Kershaw products — not just quality, but also with highlights of the original design solutions. Knives company win titles in the categories "Knife of the year", "Best design", "Best knife for a chef", they approvingly speaks of National Geographic.
 
About twenty years ago came a boom or stab, if you like, Sturm archaic knife makers. Like mushrooms after a rain began to appear numerous knife companies that use the latest technologies and innovations in production. As a result, the price of knife products drops sharply. In addition, the world market is simply flooded with cheap Asian and far Eastern artefacts. And the producers of "pedigree" had not sweet. Their knives, at times, were even in worse quality than the replicas (because of the production technologies and materials used), and were more expensive. Product sales fall sharply, some enterprises go bankrupt, others can emerge due to the strong tightening of the financial belt.
 
Perhaps the company Kershaw would have suffered the sad fate of the unfortunate fellow craft, if not a smile of fortune in the form of a Japanese company KAI Cutlery, took a faltering company (Kershaw is the concern KAI and today). The result — name and all the regalia of the enterprise have been preserved, but the production knives Kershaw gets a few modified pedigree. Of course, some knives are made to this day in Lincolnville, but most is produced at the facilities of the concern in Japan (knives of the average cost) and in China (cheap knives).
 
Here at once it is necessary to give some remarks: origin from Asia or the Far East does not prevent the Kershaw knives to be of high quality. Tools from Japan are not inferior on all counts and American (forgive us Europeans) exceed production knives made in Europe. Knives Made in China Kershaw also pretty good. So looking at them with bias. Absolutely all products undergo strict quality control on the main (American) company. But these knives are cheaper. But if you compare them with the nameless, low-grade and besaratinia Chinese knockoffs, the choice is more than obvious.
 
But still the imprint of Asia, Kershaw knives can be traced clearly. If only because the design patterns for the enterprise develops Ken Onion is a celebrated master of living in Hawaii. Also the East is seen convincingly in the very popular model of folding knife, Kershaw under code 71407 — knife Steven Seagal. Yes, you heard right. The design of the knife was developed by the famous an action hero and master of martial arts Steven Seagal. We consider it in detail.
 
The knife from Seagal — not a chef tool and not a penknife (although the character sometimes disguised as cooks). It is flashy, bright sharp tool with a spectacular blade, signed by Stephen on the one side, the Japanese lettering on the other and covered with Stingray skin handle. Impressive! But, of course, this tool Steven created himself. Ken Onion he "helped a little" and otherwise could not be. Knife weight is 155 g, which is not so easy. Wear it in the pocket of your shorts will not be, but it is not required. Blade Oriental curved, widening toward the handle, 9.4 cm long, plain. Material — Japanese AUS8A steel, polished, without coating, sharpening of razor. The handle is anodized aluminum with inserts of Stingray leather. Moreover, there are inserts on both sides that, in General, uncommon. The pin for one-hand opening bilateral (another plus is the solution for non-traditional Ken Onion). Open. The blade rotates surprisingly gently, and the lock works well, no backlash. Some critics have published information about the spontaneous folding of the blade when you kick butt. I can assure you — it is not. Repeated tests showed: fixation is reliable and distributed rumors — nothing more than a rumor.
 
In hand the knife from Seagal fits perfectly in any grip. The audit was performed in wet condition — no slipping. Even immersing the handle in oil, have a fairly strong grip, which is very pleasing. The emphasis under the finger also very comfortable. Clip somewhat tight, and cannot move to the opposite side, but also reliable to lose the knife has no chance. By the way, the clip can be moved to the other end of the arm to carry the blade up (tip up carry). The knife handle is constructed very rigidly and securely. In addition to anodized aluminum inside are two steel straps. Locking — five points, just a "concrete" design.
 
Check for sharpness showed knife cuts everything you can cut (with lots of flat slopes): from sausages and rolls to wood, meat, cartilage and plastic. It is very long keeps "the sting". This knife is the perfect tool for everyday use for those who prefer to feel the weight of the blade on the belt — reliable, sharp and comfortable.
 
We told only about one of the long knives in the Kershaw line of products, where everyone can find a knife to taste. Any product of this manufacturer will be able to become an exemplary tool for its owner and at the same time not to be a "gray mouse", because knives Kershaw — the design and aesthetics, conforming to the quality.
