With its blade length of just 2 inches” the new Kershaw Spoke is easy to take along with you just about anywhere. But even with such a compact blade” this knife is plenty useful. It slices through tasks quickly and easily because the Spoke’s big belly provides plenty of cutting surface-even though the overall blade length is shorter. The knife opens quickly and easily with SpeedSafe assisted opening and the built-in flipper. Slightly oversized” the flipper doubles as a finger guard when the blade is opened. The steel handle features an unusual textured pattern that also provides a solid grip on this smaller knife. Black-oxide coating gives it a great look and a sturdy liner lock secures the blade open during use. The Spoke has a reversible” deep-carry pocketclip and a black-oxide coated blade stop.
