Kershaw Composite Blade Knives Explained

3 Sep

Kershaw has been using ‘composite’ blades in some of their knives for several years. This video clip explains why they do it and how it’s done. Good stuff!

As a price comparison, one of the online retailers lists the standard Kershaw Junkyard Dog II with Sandvik 13c26 steel and G10 scales for $53.95. Compared to the same knife with Sandvik 13C26/CPM-D2 composite blade (with copper accent) for $76.95. In my opinion that’s a small increase in price for a substantial upgrade in materials and technology. Not to mention the ‘cool factor’ from a composite blade 🙂
