We do carry Kershaw automatic knives, however, they are not for sale through our website. They are available in-store only.

Kershaw was founded in 1974 to design and manufacture tools that knife users would be proud to own, carry, and use. This has meant that every Kershaw knife must be of the highest quality. Whether it’s a hardworking pocketknife, a special collectors’ edition, or a precision kitchen knife, Kershaw always chooses appropriate, high-quality materials and is dedicated to intensive craftsmanship. Along with extremely tight tolerances and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, this ensures that Kershaw knives provide a lifetime of performance.

Kershaw pioneered the use of many of the technologies and advanced materials that are today standard in the knife industry. Their SpeedSafe assisted opening knives, developed by custom knife-maker Ken Onion, were first-to-market. Ken was only in his fifth year of knifemaking when he developed the mechanism (1996) while being laid up after back surgery. Kershaw hired Ken in 1998 to oversea production of designs (and develop further designs) using his SpeedSafe mechanism. I don't think it's an overstatement to say that the Kershaw brand is what it is today in no small part because of Ken. Most of the models that we choose to offer are made in the USA unless otherwise noted.
