    I already had 6 Kershaw knives and am well pleased with the quality and construction of Kershaw products. Tried the Launch 13 as I never had an "automatic" knife. Was not disappointed with the 13 as it has all the quality and feel I have come to expect from Kershaw. The action works flawlessly and the edge is as sharp as any knife I have ever bought or owned. Thanks to Bladeops for the fantastic service and Kershaw for a fantastic knife.

    I’ve had this knife for a few months and absolutely love it. I like the way it fits right into the back of my pocket and you can’t even tell it’s there. The blade is interesting but it is extremely sharp and the full length of the blade is available to you with no curve with the Wharncliffe blade. The action is very snappy and the knife fits nicely in my hand. The one thing I found interesting as I was expecting a satin blade is that it is sort of satin but it has ridges like it was cut. If you run your fingernail along the edge of the blade you can feel the ridges but it’s 2 tone finish is very nice. When you open this blade it gets peoples attention. My only complaint which really isn’t a complaint but seems to becoming an industry standard and safety issue is that it is tip up carry. I like an automatic that is tip down so I can have my finger on the trigger as I pull it out. If that means it needs a safety then so be it. But the tip up does save your parts if it does accidentally open in your pocket. It seems as all automatics are going this way except the ones with safeties and even those have the tip up capability that I’ve seen. Overall, this is a great knife and has become my EDC.

    Kershaw hit a home run with Launch 13.
    Feels great in your hand and the Warncliffe blade means business! Blade Ops was fast with shipping and sent me a beauty. Grab one while you still can!
