What is SpeedSafe™?
SpeedSafe is a patented system that assists the user to smoothly open any SpeedSafe™ knife with a manual push on the blade's thumb stud or pull back on the blade protrusion. SpeedSafe™ is built into many of Kershaw's best-selling knives.
How does SpeedSafe™ work?
The heart of SpeedSafe™ is its torsion bar. Closed, the torsion bar helps prevent the knife from being opened by "gravity;" it creates a bias toward the closed position. To open the knife, the user applies manual pressure to the thumb stud or blade protrusion to overcome the resistance of the torsion bar. After the blade is out of the handle, the torsion bar moves along its half-moon track and takes over. The blade opens smoothly and locks into position, ready for use.
Is a SpeedSafe™ knife a switchblade?
No, SpeedSafe™ knives are not switchblades. There are many unique features of SpeedSafe™ knives that make them quite different than knives that are considered switchblades. Unlike a switchblade, SpeedSafe™ blades DO NOT deploy with the push of a button in the handle or by gravity alone. Instead, the user must overcome the torsion bar's resistance in order to engage the SpeedSafe™ system. Because of this, SpeedSafe™ knives fall fully outside the Federal definition of a switchblade. However, due to the complexity and constantly changing nature of these laws and regulations, it is impossible for Kershaw Knives to be aware of every restriction in every location in which our knives are sold or carried. It is the responsibility of the buyer to investigate and comply with the laws and regulations that apply in his or her specific area.
How safe is SpeedSafe™ ?
Very. SpeedSafe™ opens when the user overcomes the resistance of the torsion bar. Once deployed, a locking system secures the blade in position so that it does not close accidentally. When releasing the lock, the blade won't snap shut due to resistance provided by the torsion bar. Since the torsion bar provides a bias towards the closed position, it will normally hold the blade securely closed. New SpeedSafe™ users can ensure safe use of the technology by practicing to proficiency.
Etched products like our Ultralight Aluminum Dog Tag, Kershaw Serrated Pocket Knife, and Xikar Cigar Cutter use a delicate technique that removes only the surface coating, exposing the base metal underneath and creating a beautiful and contrasting fingerprint image.
With all of our gold and silver keepsakes, and many of our other items including the Stainless Steel Military Dog Tag, the fingerprint is deeply engraved into the product. You can feel the grooves of the fingerprint, providing a feeling of connection and comfort.
