The original Reverb was designed as an compact, lightweight knife for hiking, backpacking and other outdoor activities. But some wanted more. Specifically, more size.
Enter the Reverb XL. It's over an inch longer than the original, offering a full 3-inch blade with an upswept design that provides plenty of belly for efficient slicing. Yet Kershaw kept the conveniently slim height and width of the knife roughly the same as the original. So while the Reverb XL is a substantial knife, it's not too bulky in your pocket.
The blade is made of quality 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with titanium carbo-nitride coating for extra blade protection. Open the blade manually using a machined recess in the blade's surface; there's no flipper or thumb stud to catch on anything. A frame lock keeps the blade safely open during use. The front of the handle is made of blue-gray G10, an ideal all-weather material, with an attractive carbon fiber overlay. The back is stainless steel, also titanium carbo-nitride coated.
The Reverb XL offers a large lanyard hole and a built-in carabiner clip so you can easily clip it to backpack or harness. For those who prefer pocket carry, Kershaw added an extra deep-carry pocketclip so the Reverb XL can ride securely in your pocket during all your outdoor activities.
