In a battery” the cathode attracts the positive charge. One look at Kershaw’s new Cathode tanto and we predict you’ll have a very positive attraction indeed. The Cathode isn’t ultra fancy” just ultra functional. The 2.25-inch tanto blade is great for slicing and piercing. A top grind adds a touch of style” while heavy jimping on the spine ensures a secure grip-especially when you need to choke up on the blade for detail work. The blade opens with a flipper and the SpeedSafe assisted opening” so one-handed opening is a breeze. And” since it’s a flipper knife” it’s perfect for left- or right-handed users. The handle is stainless steel” cold-forged with a repeating pattern that’s not only looks good” but also enhances grip. The Cathode locks up securely during use thanks to the solid frame lock. Black hardware” including a backspacer with additional jimping and a reversible pocketclip” sets off the Cathode’s all-steel good looks.
