The Kershaw Launch 1 is the best choice for those who want a high-quality automatic knife that doesn’t compromise on style or performance. Featuring a CPM154 powdered metallurgy blade steel that provides excellent edge retention, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness, this knife is tough enough to handle anything you throw at it.

In addition to its world-class blade steel, the Kershaw Launch 1 also sports a BlackWash finish that provides protection and a unique, rugged style. Weighing in at 3.9 ounces, the knife has an anodized aluminum handle designed for durability and a comfortable, ergonomic grip.

But what sets the Kershaw Launch 1 apart from other knives is its push-button deployment system, which is recessed for added safety. This feature ensures your knife won't accidentally deploy in your pocket, while still making it easily accessible when you need it.

At 3.4 inches long, the blade is a versatile size that can handle anything from everyday use to more demanding outdoor tasks. The reversible pocket clip makes it easy to carry with you wherever you go.

Made in the USA at Kershaw's Oregon facility, this knife is both a work of art and a serious tool. Get yours today and experience unmatched quality, craftsmanship, and style.

One of the best

I have a few of Kershaw's launch series knives but not the #1, and since it had all of the features I like in a folder thought I would go for it. Now that I have used it for awhile I must say, this Launch 1 may be the best of the series I have. For once I would say this is at the price point that is about right for this auto blade even though it has been on the market for 8 years or so now. For me, the dimensions are just about right right. a 5-star knife for sure in my opinion. Built like a tank and drives like a race car. The Launch One is number one in my book.
