Over the years Kershaw and Zero Tolerance have come up with sharp designs that almost always surpass expectations. Whether it is a handy general-use folder or a fixed blade with a tactical flair, the brands’ knives not only look good, but also perform.
Kershaw and Zero Tolerance both also waste little time resting on their laurels, leading the way in cutting-edge innovation. And the brands have continued to do so recently with a slew of new knives certain to get enthusiasts, well, enthused. Here is a look at three sweet automatic knives from Kershaw and two manual folders from Zero Tolerance that cut to the quick of top-notch engineering.
Kershaw Launch 2
The Kershaw Launch 2 is outfitted with many of the same features as the other knives in the series: CPM 154 steel blade, machined billet aluminum handle, reversible pocket clip and recessed push button. But No. 2 is by no means a carbon copy of the other knives. The Launch 2 has a sleeker overall design and is slightly smaller than the others in the series. The knife has a 3.25-inch blade and is 4.5-inches closed, making it a top choice for everyday carry. It also has a bit of flash to its design with the stonewash finish bringing out the rugged beauty of the blade. MSRP: $139.
