Kershaw Copper Cinder
The new Kershaw Copper Cinder might be one of our favorite small budget knives this year. Why? Because it’s awesome! Designed by Rick Hinderer, it’s a multi-use, affordable knife with textured copper scales that make this the perfect knife to dress up your keychain. Best of all, you can pick it up for about $20.
With a closed length of about 2-1/2” and weighing just over an ounce, you can easily toss this on your keychain or in your pocket. Mounted on stonewashed steel liners, the Copper Cinder has copper scales with both a great look and feel.
The 1-2/5” sheepsfoot blade has a long slicing edge for the size of the knife. It opens with a thumb stud and locks in place with a Linerlock. It also comes with a bottle opener and an extra-large lanyard hole for dual use as a keychain or pocket knife.

The new Kershaw Seguin is a SpeedSafe assisted opener designed by Les George. It has a solid feel and a classic look you can get it for about $40.
The 3” 8Cr13MoV clip point has a grey PVD coating and opens with a textured, easily accessed flipper. Once open, it firmly locks in place with a framelock.
The bead blasted steel handles are heavily machined for a great look and added slip resistance. Kershaw tells us, “Les even included his characteristic index finger contour for greater blade control.” It also has a custom pivot and lined backspacer, which really pulls the whole look together on this knife.
Finally, the Seguin has a right side, deep carry, tip-up pocket clip. They’ve done a very nice job with this pocket clip because, as Kershaw explains it “wraps around the handle into an internal pocket, where it’s secured with the backspacer screws. This means that the knife slides easily into its deep-carry position, without any pocketclip screws obstructing the path to the pocket.”
