The Kershaw Launch 9 Bronze is an SMKW exclusive. If you remember lo those many years ago when Kershaw first launched the Launch 4, we called it the “smile maker”. The Launch 9 is like that, but different. It still opens with as much enthusiasm as the 4, it’s just a tiny bit smaller and lighter. It also has a different blade shape and a different handle shape. Most importantly, Kershaw gave the 9 an ambidextrous, tip-up pocket clip. Oh, and did we mention the SMKW exclusive version is different because it’s bronze?
This side opening, push button automatic knife features a 1.8” CPM 154 drop point blade with a black DLC coating. There’s jimping along the spine and a tapered fuller.
The aluminum handles are anodized bronze for a great look. The push button mechanism is slightly recessed which decreases the chance of accidental opening. It’s 3.25” closed and weighs 1.5 ounces.
