The Eris has a modified drop-point blade with an attractive top swedge. Made of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, Kershaw gives the blade a two-tone finish: stonewashed on the grinds and satin on the flats. 8Cr13MoV takes and holds a good edge, yet resharpening-when the time comes-isn't a pain. Blade access is fast, easy, and one-handed thanks to SpeedSafe assisted opening. Eris' handsome blade is paired with a pure stainless steel handle, titanium carbo-nitride coated in soft matte grey. A sturdy frame lock secures the blade during use. The handle is contoured just enough for comfort and offers a built-in lanyard hole. While it has a solid look and hefty feel, it won't weigh you down. The handy pocketclip is left/right reversible.
