Description BladeOps Knife Reviews
An exciting new entry in Kershaw's automatic series is the Launch 5. Designed by Emerson and USA-built by Kershaw, this handsome auto takes Emerson’s tactical looks to the next level of refinement.

The Launch 5's CPM154 powdered metallurgy blade steel offers more uniform distribution of carbides—so it takes and holds an excellent edge. It also provides good corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness. The blade is stonewashed for good looks and to hide use-scratches.

To lighten the Launch 5's weight, the handles and integrated backspacer are made of durable anodized aluminum. A machined texture on the handles provides a secure grip. The Launch 5 opens with a push button, recessed so that it is level with the flat of the handle. This is a safety feature and makes it harder for the knives to accidentally deploy. Left-handers can use their index finger instead of their thumb to press the blade-release/lock button. A reversible pocket clip is included and a lanyard tie-off is built into the butt end of the knife.

    Good Job Kershaw April 24, 2016
    Reviewer: Thomas Weeks from Loganville, GA United States  
    I enjoy my automatics but have slowed down on buying them because "How many auto's do you need"? Blade Ops had this on sale and I liked it's looks so I ordered it. It is a nice size and weight and feels good in your hand. It opens fast but not obnoxiously fast (like when you open your knife everybody in the room notices. I like Kershaw but I have never owned an Emerson. This knife comes very sharp and it has a wide pocket clip and rides good in the pocket. If you like autos and can carry them legally where you live I would recommend this knife.

    High quality auto February 21, 2016
    Reviewer: Michael Long from Richardson, TX United States  
    Fit and finish is better than expected, easily ZT quality.  Always wanted a Emerson but not a fan of liner locks. Needed a little lube at first to operate smoothly but will be fine with a little use. Buy this knife. Thanks Blade Ops!
