Based on Rick Hinderers Maximus, the Kershaw Decimus offers a heroic look and makes for a very distinctive EDC. The 8Cr13MoV blade is a single-edge bayonet grind with BlackWash finish for a handsomely dangerous look. It opens quickly and easily with SpeedSafe assisted opening. The flipper itself is mirrored by a symmetrical protrusion on the back side of the knife, providing a short crossguard to keep your fingers safe. The handle is steel with a stonewashed finish and black, glass-filled- nylon overlays that have a zigzag texturing inspired by the custom texture on the original Maximus and designed for both secure grip and good looks. As an additional detail, the handle also has a Hinderer-style filler tab with stonewashed finish.
