For 2016, Kershaw made something special for their neighbors to the south. And since they're in Oregon, of course they mean California. So for you, California and for anyone who prefers a shorter-bladed Kershaw made the Launch 4. The Launch 4 sports a blade of just 1.9 inches, nice and legal. And pretty handy, too.
The blade is high-performance CPM154 steel. This powdered metallurgy steel has more uniform distribution of carbides so it takes and holds an excellent edge, provides good corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness. The blade is DLC coated for an additional measure of blade protection and non-reflective good looks. Then to lighten the Launch 4's weight, Kershaw made the handle and integrated backspacer of durable aluminum, anodized in black.
