The Kershaw Lahar, model 1750, features a Japanese-made VG-10 stainless steel blade with a non-slip G-10 handle. On the back of the knife is a knob that, when pressed, opens the knife to about 25% open. If you flick your wrist at the same time you push the knob, this blade is quick to spring to the locked position. The Lahar features a thumb stud on both sides of the blade which makes it just as easy to open no matter which hand you are using. A pocket clip mounted on one side of the knife keeps it close by at all times. This knife is shaving sharp!
