Knife Of The Day XI


     Designed for great looks and solid performance, the Kershaw Echelon is our Knife Of The Day XI. The folder features SpeedSafe assisted opening and opens with a thumb stud that seems to “float on air,” hovering in the middle of an over-sized blade cutout. Kershaw used natural G-10 to create a semi-translucent handle that allows you to see the operation of the SpeedSafe mechanism inside. The Echelon also features Kershaw’s new reversible deep-carry pocket clip for discreet pocket carry.

     Blade steel: Sandvik 14C28N stainless. Blade length: 3.25″. Closed length: 4″. MSRP: $89.95. For more information, visit or
