Ergonomics is the driving force behind this newest Rick Hinderer-Kershaw collaboration. Based on Rick Hinderer’s Eklipse model, this new Kershaw Shield offers all the “ergos” of the Eklipse at an easy on the pocketbook price.
The tanto blade’s main edge is hollow-ground for excellent slicing capabilities, but that’s combined with a flat-ground tip for strong piercing abilities, too. 8Cr13MoV blade steel offers solid edge-holding capability, strength, and hardness. The all-stainless-steel handle provides deep finger contours for an extremely comfortable and secure grip. Titanium carbo-nitride coating gives the Shield a subtle, no-nonsense look.
The Shield opens smoothly and easily with the built-in flipper and Kershaw’s SpeedSafe assisted opening. A secure frame lock with hardened steel lockbar insert and lockbar stabilizer ensures a reliable lock up. For carrying convenience, the Shield offers a four-position pocketclip for left/right, tip-up/down pocket carry.
