Kershaw AmplitudeIs it the look or the guaranteed great opening? Either way, for the price you can’t beat the Kershaw Amplitude. It works great. It looks great, and you can pick it up for about $20.

You can see the Todd Rexford influence on this knife the instant you look at it. It’s a clean, classic design with just a touch of pop from the blue Rexford pivot. It’s just a great looking knife.

The Kershaw Amplitude has a 3.25” satin finished 8Cr13MoV drop point with a hollow grind. There’s jimping on the spine which lets you choke up on the knife without fear of slippage.

It opens with a flipper. Deployment is fast and smooth with the SpeedSafe assisted opening mechanism. Once the knife is open, it’s held open with a framelock.

Finally, this knife is an easy carry with a reversible, tip-up pocketclip. To change the pocketclip all you have to do is loosen the screw on the butt of the knife, flip the clip around, and re-tighten the screw. No muss, no fuss.
