Under 2-inch Blade

The popularity of Kershaw’s Launch 4 has launched several new smaller automatics for 2019.

This is the Launch 9. And while it may look like a smaller version of our best-selling Launch 2, the Launch 9 has its own special appeal. Its compact size makes it easy to conceal—and appropriate in a variety of aggressive situations where you wouldn’t pull out a more aggressive-looking knife. It offers a refined look; almost a gentleman’s automatic.

But only “almost.” The Launch 9’s drop-point blade is CPM 154 with a “working” finish. This finish is somewhat rougher than stonewashed and meant to easily hide the scuffs and scratches that a working knife earns as it does its job. CPM 154 steel takes and holds an excellent edge, offers good corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness.

Like the rest of the Launch series, the Launch 9’s handle is anodized aluminum. In this case, it’s anodized in basic matte black for everyday good looks. A push-button on the handle opens the knife quickly. Push the button again to release the blade to fold it back into the handle.

The Launch 9 features an integrated backspacer with a lanyard hole—perfect for a paracord attachment—and a reversible (left/right, tip-up) pocketclip.

 

Technical Specifications

  • Push-button Lock
    Found on the Kershaw Folding Saw, it locks the saw blade open during use, then releases with the push of a button for storage.

  • Reversible
    Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

  • Made In The USA
    When you see this on one of our knives, it means the knife was made in our Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.
