Like the other knives inspired by the original Zero Tolerance 0777, the Bareknuckle is based on the style of Kershaw's original award-winning design, but this one offers a slimmed down profile and upgraded materials. The blade is Sandvik 14C28N, a blade steel that was originally created through a Kershaw-Sandvik partnership to produce this high-performance steel. The Bareknuckle comes with handsome, anodized-aluminum handles in matte gray. It features Kershaw's patented Sub-Frame Lock to lighten in-pocket weight and to ensure safe blade lock up while in use. The blade opens manually with their KVT ball-bearing system and a flipper. They completed the Bareknuckle with a reversible, deep-carry pocketclip for convenient carry on the left or right.
