JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Who says Made in the USA can't be affordable?? Kershaw has been a cornerstone in knives for my entire life and from the moment I bought my first Blur I have been a big fan of the brand. Continuing their mission to make Made in the USA affordable, meet my new daily carry...the Link 1776.
This knife looks and feels amazing. It's industrial patriotic design and aggressive tanto blade screams sexy. Throw in the $69.99 price tag and this one becomes the perfect daily carry for everyone.
To be responsible here, we all should spend a little time getting comfortable safely learning how to use a knife first, but then...carry one EVERYWHERE! From security to the smallest of tasks the Link 1776 does the trick.
The handles are machined from lightweight aluminum and anodized dark grey. The sculpted lines of the handle provide for a comfortable and secure grip. It feels big and solid in the hand and offers a clean look. For easy opening, the Link is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening, accessed with the built-in flipper. The pocketclip is reversible for convenient left or right-handed pocket carry. The Link is made in Kershaw’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Tualatin, Oregon.
The 420HC stainless blade steel has higher amounts of carbon and chromium to boost hardenability and corrosion resistance. It is an excellent everyday steel: tough, corrosion resistant, easy to sharpen and takes a good edge. Our BlackWash finish gives the blade the well worn look of your favorite pair of jeans and offers additional blade protection.
Size and weight:
Blade length: 3.25 in. (8.4 cm)
Closed length: 4.4 in. (11.2 cm)
Overall length: 7.6 in. (19.3 cm)

The Link 1776 has quickly became one of my favorites and I absolutely LOVE the American Flag Kershaw etched into the handle. This one is a keeper folks, go,get yours today!
