Start a fire even when it’s wet outside. To get your fire going, all you’ll need is a small pile of dry grass, wood shavings, or other flammable materials. Hold the magnesium firesteel shaft close to the pile and quickly draw the striker down the shaft at a right angle to produce sparks. The sparks will ignite the dry materials and, as the fire becomes established, you will be able to gradually add larger materials to the fire until it is at the desired size. Rain, snow, or whatever Mother Nature can dish out, with this magnesium alloy fire starter, you’ll be able to achieve the spark you need to get your fire going. Small enough to fit in your driest pocket. Makes an essential addition to your dry-box supplies.
- Firesteel shaft is good for up to 3,000 strikes
- Chrome-plated striker is easy to hold and use - Molded plastic handle makes it easy to use; nylon cord keeps it handy for when you need it
- Manual, KVT ball-bearing opening for quick, easy opening with flipper
- Unique matte-blue pivot and tube spacers
- Also lights camp stoves and gas barbeques; in an emergency, the brilliant spark can be used as an emergency signal

Since the one inch long blade is razor sharp, it will open delicate packages and envelopes, cut rope or punch through heavy cartons with ease.
With its blade length of just 2 inches, the new Kershaw Spoke is easy to take along with you just about anywhere. But even with such a compact blade, this knife is plenty useful. It slices through tasks quickly and easily because the Spoke's big belly provides plenty of cutting surface—even though the overall blade length is shorter.
The knife opens quickly and easily with SpeedSafe assisted opening and the built-in flipper. Slightly oversized, the flipper doubles as a finger guard when the blade is opened. The steel handle features an unusual textured pattern that also provides a solid grip on this smaller knife. Black-oxide coating gives it a great look and a sturdy liner lock secures the blade open during use.
The Spoke has a reversible, deep-carry pocketclip and a black-oxide coated blade stop.

There are very few knives in the world that we can think of that can out-chop or out-cut a good Kukri. It’s true that some of the best Kukris (like our Gurkha model) can be somewhat expensive, and while that “thoroughbred” performs extraordinarily well, sometimes what’s required is a good, inexpensive, “workhorse” model – and our Kukri Machetes are those workhorses. This machete comes fully sharpened and ready to tackle the toughest jobs.
Still popular throughout Asia and Pacific Rim, the Bolo Machete features a wide point that shifts its weight forward, making it capable of excellent work when heavy chopping or slashing is required.
The Heavy Machete, as its name suggests, is one of the heaviest models in our lineup. The stout 1055 carbon blade widens toward the tip for maximum cutting and chopping power.
In a battery, the cathode attracts the positive charge. One look at Kershaw’s new Cathode tanto and we predict you’ll have a very positive attraction indeed.
The Cathode isn’t ultra fancy, just ultra functional. The 2.25-inch tanto blade is great for slicing and piercing. A top grind adds a touch of style, while heavy jimping on the spine ensures a secure grip—especially when you need to choke up on the blade for detail work. The blade opens with a flipper and our SpeedSafe assisted opening, so one-handed opening is a breeze. And, since it’s a flipper knife, it’s perfect for left- or right-handed users.
The handle is stainless steel, cold-forged with a repeating pattern that’s not only looks good, but also enhances grip. The Cathode locks up securely during use thanks to the solid frame lock. Black hardware, including a backspacer with additional jimping and a reversible pocketclip, sets off the Cathode’s all-steel good looks.
Te Grinder offers a blade with a slightly curved belly for all-purpose cutting and slicing. A clipped, tanto-inspired tip offers excellent piercing capabilities, too. If you need to bear down on the back of the blade during a particularly tough cutting job, the concave spine with heavy jimping provides additional grip security. The work-ready blade is made of 4Cr13 steel for solid service.
The Grinder is always ready to go to work quickly thanks to our SpeedSafe assisted opening and convenient built-in flipper. A secure liner lock keeps the blade securely open during work until the user releases it. The glass-filled nylon handle is ergonomically contoured to fit the hand securely and grooved to offer an extra-secure grip. The deep-carry pocketclip is easily reversible for tip-down, right- or left-handed carry.
he new Shuffle II offers a bigger blade and longer handle, but with the same multi-functional flexibility and value pricing that made the Kershaw Shuffle such a hit.

The Robin 2 Lightweight is refreshed with these new features. Its mid-size makes the Robin2 an easy knife to carry everyday in an office our outdoor environment. Its full-flat ground blade is high-carbon 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a comet-shaped hole for one hand opening/closing. Jimping (crosshatching) dots the spine, making a textured section where the thumb rests, creating tactile resistance that restrains the folder from sliding and slipping when cutting. The FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handle is molded with Bi-Directional Texturing™ with a fish-scales pattern. The scales hold the knife steady while cutting even in hands that are wet, slick or gloved. The welcome addition of a four-way clip offers the option of carrying the folder tip-up/tip-down or left-right-handed and a lanyard hole located at the back of the handle accommodates a secondary-retentive thong or cord. Custom knifemaker David Boye's dent feature is a half-moon-shaped snip of steel removed from the lock's release lever as an added safety feature to the back-lock.
Our Hide Out was designed as a small, inexpensive and super-functional neck knife. The resulting blade is a true featherweight, weighing a meager 1.9oz!

Its full tang is encapsulated in a weather proof Kray-Ex handle that has been designed to be very thin and flat.
