Kershaw’s plain-edge Outcast is a decent choice for an outdoor knife. It’s reasonably strong, fairly priced, and has the reputation of Kershaw behind its craftsmanship… three very good reasons to keep this one in mind.
The blade has a recurve drop point with half-length top swage, a suitable choice for heavy outdoor use. It’s made from 10 inches of hardened D2 steel, which is then coated with ti-nitride for extra resilience and shine. And it’s full-tang as well.
The handle also seems fully prepared for tough usage since it boasts a double-injection molded Santoprene handle. Santoprene is the branded name for the most widely used thermoplastic rubber on the market. It performs well under extreme hot/cold temperatures, but possesses a lot of the same flexibility and durability that rubber does.
The knife comes with a lanyard if you prefer to hang it, or a black Kydex sheath if you prefer to wear it.
So, all things considered, it’s a fairly decent blade with excellent craftsmanship and it’s worth the price, too. Can’t get much more reasonable than that!
