Kershaw Fraxion Knife Review


What in tarnation is up with this super lightweight sharp knife?


I’ve tried to dull this blade.  I have. I’ve asked it to swallow cardboard and it has, willfully. Heavy duty thick cardboard that are created to transport metal tool chests.

Truth be told, I expected the knife to break….it’s extremely lightweight and well, feels like it’ll crumble at the sign of actually thinking about cutting something.  Right from the start of this knife review I thought, if this knife falls apart in my hands…..I will report it as doing just THAT!!! And, truthfully I expected the Fraxion to do just that, BUT…………I’m still using and abusing it for a short time before I give it to my nephew.  He loved the ease of opening and smoothness of the knife while I laid it down in between cuts of my dinner.


KVT ball-bearing opening

  • Handle: G10 with carbon fiber overlay

  • Inset liner lock

  • Reversible pocket clip (left/right, tip-up)

  • Steel: 8Cr13MoV, black-oxide Blackwash finish


Two options for pocket clip carry: Tip up right pocket, or tip up left pocket.  The clip will need to be adjusted to fit your desired carry location!!

Easy deployment….it’s not assisted open with an innerspring, rather ease of flow when depressing the finger spine.


I can’t find anything bad to say in this knife review about the Kershaw Fraxion…..


I’d recommend them to anyone and give them as wedding gifts to the groomsmen!!


Steel Sahlute!
