Experience strength and reliability even in the midst of chaos with the Kershaw Brawler. This versatile knife is perfect for everyday carry, offering a compact size and exceptional performance.

The heart of the Kershaw Brawler is its 3-inch black-coated blade, made with budget-friendly 8Cr13MoV stainless steel. This steel not only performs well but also boasts excellent rust resistance, ensuring durability for the long haul.

Unlike traditional American tantos with abrupt angles, the Brawler features a modified tanto point with a subtle curve. This design allows for greater cutting edge and effortless slicing in one smooth stroke.

Thanks to Kershaw's SpeedSafe assisted-opening mechanism, the Brawler springs to life easily with either the thumb stud or flipper tab. For added security, a sturdy liner lock keeps the blade securely in place during use.

The all-black handle of the Brawler is both functional and ergonomic. Designed with angled curves that conform to the palm, it provides a comfortable grip for extended periods of use. The flipper tab also acts as a finger guard, offering additional protection during demanding tasks.

The texture of the glass-filled nylon scales ensures a secure grip in any environment, making the knife feel natural in your hand. Additionally, the Brawler comes with a four-position pocket clip, allowing you to carry it in a way that suits your preference.

With a total length of 7.10 inches and weighing only 3.9 ounces, the Kershaw Brawler is a compact and lightweight option for everyday carry. Its closed length of 4.1 inches ensures it won't take up much space in your pocket or bag.

Get peace of mind and dependability with the Kershaw Brawler. Add this versatile folding knife to your collection today and be prepared for any situation that comes your way.

Nice Pocket Knife

I like to carry protection on my person just in case something comes up. I am a runner and this fits nicely on my jogging pants and shorts without adding extra weight. It is light, has a nice grip and the assist opens quickly and smoothly. Also, I use it for other things and have been pleased with the quality and reliability of this knife. I have not had the assist-pin issue the other reviewer had, but I have only had the knife for a month with little use. Good knife--good price!

Love this knife, but...

I'm on my second Brawler and need to get another replacement. OK, so here's the good; this knife performs great, the blade holds a decent edge for almost any use (I keep mine sharp enough to shave) and it is soooo comfortable in your hand, also the assisted opening is blindingly fast and easy. The scales on it are textured well so you have a decent grip even when sweating or have something on your hands. The multi-position clip is a nice feature also. I have turned down beautiful knives just because the clip is in the wrong spot and can't be moved. Now the bad; the assist spring either breaks or falls out. Once this happens the blade will not stay shut. So far though, Kershaw has been good about replacing the knives.
Please understand that I use this knife for EDC and use it for EVERYTHING! So it probably gets more use than the average person will use it. A good friend of mine has one that he bought the same time I bought my first one and his is still working fine. I highly recommend this knife.
