The first thing you notice about the Piston is its cut good looks. Both blade and handle are dramatically sculpted for a look you won’t see in just anybody’s pocket.

And speaking of pockets, while the Piston is a larger knife, it won’t put too much weight in your pocket. The key is the Piston’s lightweight G-10 handle and Inset Liner Lock. G-10, an epoxy-filled woven glass fiber material, is extremely tough and stable all by itself. So there’s no need to fully line the handle with steel plate to create a durable handle. That lightens the weight, as well as the thickness of the knife, considerably.

Then, to ensure a secure lock up, Kershaw uses our Inset Liner Lock. We inset a smaller steel plate, which functions like a locking liner, in one side of the handle. When the knife is opened, the steel plate moves behind the blade securely locking is open.

The Piston’s blade is Sandvik 14C28N, a high-performance stainless steel that’s tough, corrosion resistant, and hardened to 58-60 on the Rockwell Hardness Scale. The Piston offers our quad-carry options and even has a lanyard attachment. Don’t see a hole in the handle? Exactly. There’s a hidden lanyard attachment in the interior of the handle so nothing interrupts the Piston’s chiseled look.

Flipper
May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The “flipper” is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.

SpeedSafe®
Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.

Inset Liner Lock
A strip of stainless steel is riveted inside the knife’s handle—most commonly when the handle is a lightweight material. This enables us to create a slimmer, lighter knife, while still providing the strength and security of a locking liner.

4-Position
The user may position the pocketclip for tip-up or tip-down, left- or right-handed carry.

Made In The USA
When you see this on one of our knives, it means the knife was made in our Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.
