Kershaw Scrambler Knife Review
Kershaw Scrambler Knife
In my opinion, the people at Kershaw Knives have perfected form and function in the knives that they manufacture. I already carried the Kershaw Black Horse II and the Kershaw Brawler. After testing the Scrambler, I now have another favorite Every Day Carry (EDC) knife for the home, the workshop, and the pond.
RJ Martin designed the Scrambler and it is a beautiful knife to behold. The front side of the knife is a textured G-10 titanium carbo-nitride-coated bolster. I found this textured coating very helpful when gripping the knife with wet hands. The other side of the Scramber is stainless steel. The outer shell of the knife’s handle also acts as the frame lock. The girth of the sturdy frame lock makes a satisfying “click” when deployed, ensuring the blade remains open when in use.
For further safety, the extended bolster of the knife provides protection for your forefinger when gripping the knife. There is a reversible pocket clip to carry the knife right- or left-handed and there is a pre-drilled hole for a lanyard. The Scrambler is an EDC that you are proud to carry because it looks as good as it performs.
The Scrambler was razor sharp from the beginning. The 8Cr13MoV blade steel provides durability and excellent edge retention. I cut materials of varied thickness and composition effortlessly, in part because of the hollow-ground drop-point blade.
Fast Blade Deployment
The Scrambler utilizes Kershaw’s SpeedSafe technology, so I could remove the knife from my right pocket and open it with the same hand in one swift, smooth motion. Whether you carry an EDC for protection or convenience, a Kershaw SpeedSafe-equipped knife inspires confidence that your EDC will be ready when necessary.
The Scrambler is a very attractive knife for so many reasons. It is striking to look at, the blade performs flawlessly, and it opens seamlessly with one hand. If you know someone who craves a practical knife that also inspires pride in ownership, the Scrambler would be an excellent choice.
