The Kershaw Bareknuckle 7777 is a cool pocket knife, based on the legendary Zero Tolerance 777. There was already a Kershaw version of this design, the Natrix, but the Barenuckle is made in the United States. Like its 777-example. It got a substantial upgrade in terms of materials compared to the Natrix.
When you hold the Kershaw Barenuckle you will immediately notice how slim the knife actually is. You will also hardly notice it in your pocket. Also because of the deep-carry pocket clip that is added to the Kershaw Bareknuckle. As such it hangs nice and deep inside your pocket.
Kershaw selected aluminium for the handle. Grey anodized with enough grip for it to feel comfortable in hand. Like with the ZT 777 and the Kershaw Natrix the Bareknuckle is enhanced with a Sub-Framelock. This is a special lock that closely resembles a framelock, but with a seperate lockbar. You can clearly see this at the lock side. KAI USA, the mother company of Zero Tolerance and Kershaw, has a patent on this feature.
You open the Kershaw Bareknuckle with the flipper. Because of the ball bearings this is fast and easy. In terms of steel Sandvik 14C28N was chosen. A type of steel Kershaw developed with Sandvik as a premium type of steel with an amazing performance for EDC use.
With the Kershaw Bareknuckle 7777 Kershaw once again demonstrates what an amazing designs and production they have to offer. An amazing, made in the United States EDC pocket knife that will bring a smile to any knife enthusiasts face.
