Designed by Matt Diskin, the Launch 12 is the baby brother of Kershaw’s popular Launch 8. Inspired by the look of classic Italian stilettos, the Launch 12 offers a stiletto style for a new generation. More compact than the original Launch 8, the Launch 12 weighs just 1.9 ounces, making it exceptionally easy to carry. The slim blade is sharpened on one side and has a deep top grind to lighten weight and add stiletto style. Integrated fingerguards on handle top and bottom keep fingers away from danger.
This made in the USA automatic knife has stiletto styling in a smaller package. The CPM-154 powdered metallurgy blade steel takes and holds an excellent edge, provides corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness. The lightweight, strong anodized aluminum handle is comfortably slim with a carbon fiber insert, while the low-profile push button makes it harder for the blade to accidentally deploy.
