Inspired by the look of classic Italian stilettos, the Kershaw Launch 8 modernizes this traditional design for a new generation. The Launch 8 has the symmetrical lines of a stiletto, is very lightweight—only 2.4 ounces—and easy-to-carry. The slim blade is sharpened on one side and has a deep top grind to lighten weight and add stiletto style. To maintain the symmetry, the pivot is sunk deep in the handle and covered by a carbon fiber insert. Integrated fingerguards on handle top and bottom keep fingers away from danger.
