Kershaw 1550 Review

If you want a tactical knife that is not too extreme the Kershaw 1550 could be what you are looking for. The Kershaw 1550 ST Blackout is a knife with a black finish. Both the handle and the blade are black and its made in the United States for all those who love home made products.

This lockblade knife has a 3 1/4 inch blade crafted from Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel. It is a serrated edge, drop point blade that is DLC coated. The handle is made from glass filled nylon and is 3/8 inches by 1/2 inch thick. The handle is textured and contoured  to ensure a secure grip each time. It features a pocket clip that can be removed if you do not wish to secure it to your belt or pocket. The clip is made from metal and is thick to ensure a secure hold when clipped to your belt or pocket.

Featuring Speedsafe technology the blade is held securely and will deploy quickly and safely each time. The blade is held in place when the knife is closed by an internal torsion bar. With the firm press of your thumb in an upward motion the friction loading blade is overcome and the blade deploys quickly and safely. The blade is then locked into place by the torsion bar so you can safely use the knife. The knife is easily closed by pushing the torsion bar to the side and folding the blade in. These features allow for one handed deployment which is great if you need to use the knife in an emergency or in a high stress situation.
