The Kershaw Select Fire is one of those knives that punches well above its weight class in so many ways. The folder is an honest and reliable pocket knife with a few features that every handyman should have nearby.
But first let's look at the blade of what Kershaw calls a knife-focused multitool.
The 3.4-inch blade is made of functional 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a bead-blasted finish. This manual-opening blade engages with ambidextrous thumbstuds.
Locking open with a liner lock mechanism, the blade of the Select Fire is practical for an EDC knife.
But the real ingenuity of the knife shines through a built-in 4-piece bit set and bit driver.
This multitool aspect of the knife is integrated into the textured glass-filled nylon handle scales and includes 2 flathead bits, 2 crosshead bits, and a bit drive shift with a ruler.
Surprisingly enough, the contoured handle is comfortable and fits the hand without issue when you only want to use the knife.
If you're the kind of handyman who uses a knife more than any other part of a multitool, this multitool is for you.
