A thermite is a mixture that, when ignited, produces a huge amount of heat. And we think you'll agree, the new Thermite is hot. With tactical styling and practical performance, the Thermite, designed by Rick Hinderer, has a great look and great features. The Thermite offers Rick's no-nonsense functionality, but with enough style that co-workers will look on with a satisfying touch of envy when you take the Thermite out of your pocket. The 3.5-in. stonewashed blade is hollow-ground for excellent slicing capabilities with a flat-ground spanto tip for strong piercing. A machined G-10 front scale and a heavily textured backspacer add to the Thermite's good looks. On the practical side, the back handle is stainless steel with a frame lock and lockbar stabilizer. For easy opening, the Thermite is SpeedSafe-equipped and can be accessed with the ambidextrous flipper or thumbstud. It comes equipped with Kershaw's four-position deep pocketclip.
