The Thistle is a manual opening knife and may be opened with the handy thumbstud. For convenient pocket carry, the Thistle also has a reversible (left/right) pocketclip.
The Thistle offers an extra-wide blade, an ergonomic handle that’s curved to fit the contours of the hand perfectly, and our push-button lock release.
The Thistle’s big, drop-point blade provides excellent slicing capabilities as well as handling a wide variety of cutting tasks, making it the perfect work or every day carrying knife. The quality stainless steel blade offers good edge-holding capabilities and strength. A purpose-roughened, stonewashed finish hides scratches.
The curved handle provides cutting leverage as well as offering an extremely comfortable grip on the knife. To further enhance grip, the Thistle’s handle is embossed with Kershaw’s exclusive K-Texture™. K-Texture provides additional grip traction for confident cutting in a variety of environmental conditions.
On the side of that handle, is the Thistle’s push-button lock release. It makes it easier than ever to release the Thistle’s secure liner lock and close the knife. Just push the button. The liner lock is released and the user can fold the blade closed while keeping fingers out of the way of the closing blade.
