Kershaw Boa

Kershaw Boa

This is one of my favorite knife designs. The "Speed-Safe" mechanism provides fast and certain presentation. The extended lower guard is a big advantage for defensive use. The blade shape handles just about any task well. The grip is comfortable and secure in the hand. This knife just looks, and feels, cool.

Robert Bueltel drilled and tapped the handle so the clip can be reversed.
