We’ve been around long enough to remember when the Editor came back from Blade Show a few years ago with the Kershaw Launch 4. He smiled. He smiled like there was a new intern arguing over correct comma use. Why did he smile? This small California-legal auto knife is just that fun. It brings delight to the most jaded of souls.

This USA-made knife has a 1.9” CPM-154 dagger blade. It opens with a low-profile push button. The opening is incredibly forceful, fast, and fun. When you’re ready to close it up, just push the button again and push the blade back in the handle.

The 3.25” anodized 6061-T6 aluminum handles are small enough to be an easy carry but big enough to be comfortable in most grips. It comes with a right carry, tip-up pocket clip.
