The tan and black Kershaw Fraxion is the brainchild Danish custom knife maker, Jens Anso. The Fraxion gets its name because it’s a “Fraxion” of the weight of most comparable knives. We’d like to think it’s also a “Fraxion” of the price you’d pay for a knife of this quality, but Kershaw didn’t tell us that. Here’s the thing. The Kershaw Fraxion is fast, light, and at $35 – it’s more than affordable. Kershaw FraxionThe Fraxion features a manual flipper opening mechanism, but don’t let it fool you. With the KVT ball-bearing system that’s been used in ZT’s for years, this flipper is as fast as any SpeedSafe assisted opening knife we put it up against. The 2.75″ 8Cr13MoV blade has a black oxide, BlackWash finish and a very modern clip point shape. Kershaw Fraxion

And about that tan and black handle, Kershaw tells us, “The lighter weight is thanks to the streamlined design as well as to the light-yet-strong G10 handles with a handsome carbon fiber overlay.” That means the Fraxion as a whole weighs in at a mere 1.9oz, which is incredible for a 6.75″ knife. The Fraxion’s inset liner lock secures the blade open during use, and it comes with a pre-drilled, reversible pocket clip.
