Kershaw is no stranger to innovation.

On top of popularizing assisted-opening mechanisms, the brand helped pioneer the use of composite blades. This design combines two complementary alloys to make an attractive and high-quality blade.

This is best illustrated in our latest Knife of the Week.

The Kershaw Dividend Composite is a handsome American-made folder that excels as a hard-working everyday carry.

The 3-inch blade melds D2 steel on the cutting edge with Bohler N690 to harness the toughness of D2 and the corrosion resistance of N690. The process also creates an eye-catching zipper look where the two steels meet.

An assisted-opening mechanism ensures the blade springs open lightning fast with the push of the flipper tab.

The handle of the Kershaw Dividend Composite  uses lightweight aluminum scales anodized in olive to make it stand apart from other typical all-black knives.

With a reasonable weight of 2.8 ounces and deep-carry pocket clip, this unique and exceptional folder is a perfect EDC companion.

The Kershaw Dividend is available in MagnaCut as well.
