The Amplitude 3.25 offers a 3.25-inch blade - as you might have already guessed - yet when closed, the knife is still a compact 4.1 inches long. The 8Cr13MoV blade is heat treated to Kershaw's demanding specifications to bring out the very best qualities in the steel. A Blackwash finish on both blade and handle combines with the simple lines of the Amplitude to give this knife a sophisticated look. Oversized pivot hardware kicks it up a notch in style. This no-nonsense knife offers simple, clean lines, a drop-point blade, and a smooth all-steel handle that's contoured to give it the feel of Todd's custom knives. A sturdy frame lock secures the blade when open. So that the Amplitude 3.25 is ready when needed, it can be opened one-handed thanks to SpeedSafe assisted opening and the handy, built-in flipper.
