This newest version of the Volt offers a sleek look and a classic clip-point blade. This Volt SS doesn't have a Composite Blade, but what it does have is pure stainless steel, all the way down. The blade is high-quality 8CR13MoV stainless steel, heat treated to Kershaw specifications to bring out the very best in the steel strength, hardness, and the ability to take and hold a wicked edge. The Volt SS blade shape is a versatile clip point. With its narrow, clipped tip, it provides extra cutting control for delicate tasks. At the same time, the blade has enough belly to make it a good slicer, too. The handle is pure stainless steel with a sturdy frame lock. Its slimmer than previous Volts, which makes it sit comfortably in your pocket. The pocketclip is reversible for either tip-up or tip-down carry. And did we mention that the Volt SS is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening? Just pull back on the ambidextrous flipper and the blade moves out of the handle, quickly and easily.
