Kershaw Strobe Folding Knife | 8Cr13MoV Steel, 3.3" Blade, KS1086X
Our KVT Ball-Bearing Opening System Makes the Strobe Fast & Easy to Open
Knife users who love the look of Kershaw’s Diskin Hunter—but would love it even more in a manual folding knife—now have their wish.
The Strobe takes the sweeping lines of the Diskin Hunter and turns them into a smaller, folding pocketknife. The clip-point blade offers a deep belly and opens with a handy flipper.
Thanks to the Strobe’s KVT ball-bearing opening system, the blade opens smoothly and easily; just pull back on the flipper. A washer with caged ball bearings surrounds the pivot joint and the bearings rotate as the blade moves out of the handle to ensure quick, one-handed opening. A frame lock provides secure lockup.
The blade is heat treated to Kershaw’s demanding specifications to bring out the best qualities in the steel, then stonewashed. The slim handle is characteristic of a Diskin knife and fits the hand securely. K-Texture™ handle overlays in glass-filled nylon provide additional grip.
The pocketclip is reversible for left/right-handed carry. Even better? It’s a deep-carry pocketclip so that it rides comfortably down in the pocket.

StrobeBy: David Foenander on 17 September 2018Very nice EDC compact easy deploy and sharp out of the box and good value for money but the pocket clip seems to catch easily on just about everything which can be a pain
