Cutlery Hall of Famer Frank Centofante has come together with Kershaw Knives, and one of their own resident knife masters, Ken Onion, to produce an absolutely stunning and sturdy pocket knife. The Kershaw Centofante-Onion is a 2.25-inch drop point, plain edge, locking blade made from 440A stainless steel that was selected for resistance against corrosion and wear. The handle is an oh-so-smooth polished stainless steel with Tungsten DLC coating and genuine pearl inlays. This is a gorgeous knife at a very reasonable price.
The Kershaw patented Speed Safe assisted-opening system is incorporated into the design, helping the user open the blade with a manual push against the blade’s thumb stud or Index-Opening system located on the clasp. This spring-assisted function is ambidextrous and allows the user to access the blade quickly and smoothly with only one hand. Once open, the blade locks in place for safe use.
All told, the Centofante-Onion knife has a 3 1/8-inch closed length and weighs 2.4 ounces. I really like what Kershaw has been coming up with. Their designs are almost futuristic, but don’t vary too far from normalcy so as to keep it classy. This knife – with quality materials and craftsmanship — is certainly intended to be used for years and years, not to hang on a display case, but it has a style and expertise behind it that is sure to give its owner bragging rights..
