Kershaw Injection - Review

New for 2013, the Kershaw Injection is a offering from Kershaw that I feel is going to be a great hit. Offered in two different sizes (3.0 and 3.5), the Injection has streamlined good looks from the tip of it's bead blasted drop-point blade to it's 3D-machined G10 handles. All of this at a price that definitely won't break the bank.

3.0 Specifications:
Overall Length: 7.00"
Closed Length: 4.00"
Blade Length: 3.00"
Blade Steel: 8CR13mov
Handle Material: 3D-machined G10
Weight: 3.3 oz.

3.5 Specifications:
Overall Length: 8.00"
Closed Length: 4.50"
Blade Length: 3.50"
Blade Steel: 8CR13mov
Handle Material: 3D-machined G10
Weight: 4.4 oz.

Whether you are a big knife person or like a smaller knife, the Kershaw Injection is available in two sizes that you will come to enjoy. I have been carrying both of these knives off and on over the last 2-3 weeks and both sizes are very nice and easy to adapt into your edc system.

The blade on the Kershaw Injection is constructed using 8CR13Mov stainless steel. The bead blast finish on the blades look very sleek and well done. Another thing I really like is that there full flat ground which makes a great slicing knife. I've used these knives cutting a bunch of different things from preparing cheeseburgers to cutting out some old hoses from my Jeep and opening letters and boxes. The Injection makes for a great EDC blade.

Out of the box they were both razor sharp. They maintained that razor sharp edge for about a week and half after cutting through some heavy duty cardboard boxes. Getting a razor edge back on there was easy with my Edge Pro. The longest part of sharpening this knife was setting up the edge pro.

The Kershaw Injection knives are manual deployment knives. Getting the blade open is a breeze using the ambidextrous thumbstuds. Deployment is super smooth and fast which can be attributed to using bronze phosphor washers and precise machine tolerances. Lock up is solid with no movement.

The handles are constructed using 3D-machined G10 with full stainless steel liners with a liner lock as the locking choice. I really like the G10 scales because they are contoured and have just enough texture to get a solid grip, but not overkill. The full stainless liners provide a ton of strength so don't let a heavy duty cutting task scare you. This thing will meet and exceed most cutting task out there.

These knives have a partially open with a backspacer towards the back of the handle that also has the lanyard hole integrated into it. I've had the knife messy from prepping food and cleaning was easy. I didn't even have to disassemble the knife. The overall feel and ergonomics of this knife leave me surprised that these aren't in the 50-60 price range.

Even thought it's not a deep carry pocket clip, they mounted this clip at the highest point which allows the knife to sit nice in the pocket without much sticking out. You can adjust the clip for left or right hand use and that is tip up carry only!

My final conclusion on the Kershaw Injection: For under $40 bucks these are great knives. Whether you are looking for a great EDC knife or a gift for a friend or family member, the Kershaw Injection is a great choice. Between the FFG blade and the great ergonomics 3D-machined G10 handles, you really do get a lot of knife for the money. Definitely give one a try. If you like the FFG blades on Spyderco knives you will love this blade for sure. You can get either of these knives from The Kershaw Store for under $40 bucks each!!
