What’s Hot in Shooting: Kershaw Launch 13 and Brawler Knives

Kershaw Launch 13:

The Launch 13 from Kershaw combines the best of both slimness and full-sized cutting ability. Its Wharncliffe blade is perfect for fine work, yet it’s slightly angled for more versatile cutting. The narrow profile and deep-carry pocketclip let the Launch 13 easily ride in the pocket. Design details round out the package, including an integrated lanyard hole, a two-tone blade, and a custom triangular pivot.

Kershaw Brawler:

The Brawler starts with a modified tanto blade—a shape often found in tactical and rescue knives that may be required to punch through tough materials. You’ll notice that the top of the Brawler’s blade has a grind, too—a swedge. It helps narrow the blade, adding to its piercing power. At the same time, the Brawler’s straight belly offers excellent cutting capacity, is perfect for bearing down on a task, and is easy to resharpen. All this makes the Brawler an excellent utility and multipurpose knife.
