The durable and scratch-resistant PVD coating on the Kershaw Outright is bright blue, and the color is definitely the first thing you will notice. Its upswept blade makes it excellent slicer, while the 8Cr13MoV blade steel ensures good edge retention, strength, and hardness. While the handle is matching blue PVD-coated steel with a sturdy frame lock with an overlay of black G10. This medium size knife opens with SpeedSafe assisted opening with flipper or thumb stud. Hardware (except handle standoffs) and the single-position pocketclip are PVD coated in blue to maintain the knife colorful aesthetic.
