First Look: Kershaw Parley


Kershaw’s New Parley Is A Unique EDC Knife That Is Fun To Use And Built To Last. The Cleaver Blade Makes It Stand Out From The Crowd.

Kershaw has once again made a fantastic folding knife that is beautiful, functional, and exciting. The new Parley features Kershaw’s non-locking, slipjoint design and a cleaver-style blade made of 7Cr17MoV stainless with a satin polish. It opens with a nail nick and features a lanyard hole for excellent portability.

While the polished black Micarta handle is smooth to hold and feels good in the hand, the star of the show is the blade. The 3.1-inch cleaver is inspired by the hulking kitchen meat cleaver. It can handle kitchen tasks but is far more nimble than its bigger brothers.

As a folder, the cleaver blade works great handling small tasks outside and anything in and around the house. The plain edge cuts true and gracefully and is easy to sharpen and maintain. With an MSRP of just $39.99, it’s a bargain that should absolutely be snatched up.
