The Clash 1605ST Pocket Knife, from Kershaw Knives, is a lightweight, everyday pocket knife constructed around a super sharp drop point stainless steel blade.

That's paired with a lightweight Glass-filled nylon handle. To make it even better, the Clash features SpeedSafe assisted opening, a Flipper, and is priced for excellent value. The Kershaw Clash 1605ST Pocket Knife is also available in a black-oxide coating model.
Kershaw's SpeedSafe technology is a system that assists the user in opening and closing their pocket knife. A simple manual push on the blade's thumb stud or pull back on the blade protrusion initiates the process. The function of SpeedSafe prevents the knife from opening by gravity creating a bias toward the closed position. Once the knife is open, it will lock in place and remain so until the user initiates the closure process.
Very. SpeedSafe opens when the user overcomes the resistance of the torsion bar. Once deployed, a locking system secures the blade in position so that it does not close accidentally. When releasing the lock, the blade won't snap shut due to resistance provided by the torsion bar. Since the torsion bar provides a bias towards the closed position, it will normally hold the blade securely closed. New SpeedSafe users can ensure safe use of the technology by practicing to proficiency.SpeedSafe was specifically designed for sporting and work situations where one-handed opening is preferable and safer. Its safe, efficient opening has made it a popular choice for hunters, fishermen, and those who require the one-hand opening function on the job-site.
