Kershaw Link Tanto Gray Aluminum Blackwash
The missing link—between a quality, made-in-the-USA knife and a price most consumers can afford—has been found. Or, to be more precise, Kershaw is making it. Appropriately, they call it the Link and have given it the patriotic model number of 1776. The perfect patriot’s knife with an American flag engraved right on the handle to make sure you and anyone who sees it knows it’s born in the land of the free.

This Link, model 1776TGRYBW, is Kershaw’s tanto-blade model. The 420HC stainless blade steel has higher amounts of carbon and chromium to boost hardenability and corrosion resistance. It is an excellent everyday steel: tough, corrosion resistant, easy to sharpen and takes a good edge. The BlackWash finish gives the blade the well worn look of your favorite pair of jeans and offers additional blade protection.
The handles are machined from lightweight aluminum and anodized dark grey. The sculpted lines of the handle provide for a comfortable and secure grip. It feels big and solid in the hand and offers a clean look. Although it is a full sized every day carry knife, the smooth handle and sleek design make it a breeze to carry and it won’t rip your pockets up either. Whether your EDC knife is utilitarian or more of a self defense mechanism, the Link can easily cover both of those bases.
For easy opening, the Link is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening, accessed with the built-in flipper. The pocketclip is reversible for convenient left or right-handed pocket carry. The Link is made in Kershaw’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Tualatin, Oregon.
