The Kershaw Brawler (1990) knife is an excellent tactical knife for general use. The overall length of the knife measures 7.1" and it weighs 3.9 oz.
The Brawler features a modified tanto blade, a shape often found in tactical and rescue knives that may be required to punch through tough materials. The tanto is an ideal shape for these piercing tasks as there is plenty of metal to support the point, making it stronger than many other blade shapes.The blade has a grind, called a swedge which helps narrow the blade, adding to its piercing power. The 3" blade is made from 8Cr13MoV steel with a black oxide coating and has a plain edge.
The Brawler’s straight belly offers excellent cutting capacity, is perfect for bearing down on a task and is easy to resharpen, making it an excellent utility knife. The handle is just as functional, the angled handle curves into the palm of the user’s hand providing comfort and ease of use. Jimping on the back of the blade offers additional traction. With the blade deployed, the flipper doubles as a finger guard and provides additional hand protection during knife use.
For fast and easy one-handed opening, the Brawler is equipped with Kershaw's SpeedSafe. Simply pull back on the blade protrusion and the SpeedSafe assisted opening system takes over, moving the blade out of the handle, ready for use. In addition, the Brawler features sturdy glass-filled nylon handle scales, a secure locking liner and a four-position Quad-Carry pocketclip to complete the package.
