The Kershaw Camshaft is a SpeedSafe assisted opening flipper you can pick up for about $22. That makes it a budget friendly knife that you won’t have to worry over. Not only that, it’s actually a pretty danged good-looking knife. Let’s look at it.
The Camshaft has a 3” stonewash finished 4Cr14 clip point blade. To save you some time looking up the composition of 4Cr14, it’s like an improved 420 stainless-steel. This budget steel is a high chromium steel with added vanadium and molybdenum. All this means this knife is rust and corrosion resistant, and has improved wear resistance over 420. It should be an easy sharpener.
It has textured glass-reinforced nylon (GFN) handle scales for a good grip. Additionally, they’re slightly contoured for a comfortable grip. It has a decorative pivot and backspacer to add visual appeal. There’s an ambidextrous, deep carry tip-up pocket clip and lanyard hole. It’s 4.25” closed and weighs about 3.1 ounces. Overall, we seriously like the look of this knife for the price.
