The Knife J.S. Dondino Carries


“I carry a Kershaw 1480 with a blade of VG-10 steel clad in 420HC. I love the classic look of the knife and it cuts like it’s going out of style. I’ve had it since my Navy service and still use it daily to cut shroud line for my job as a civilian. It also does a number on the occasional apple and the errant strings on my wife’s sweaters.”
