The Shuffle is a compact, versatile & tough multi-function tool. You’ll like its compact size and discovering how useful that stubby little blade really is. You’ll also like how nicely the finger contours fit your hand and how our K-Texture handle provides an extra secure grip.
The Shuffle has some additional tricks up its sleeve, too. It has a flathead screwdriver at the butt of the knife, which doubles as a lanyard attachment, and a handy bottlecap lifter built into the back of the knife.
The blade is made of made of a steel known for toughness and durability. The K-Texture handle – composed of a repeating pattern of the Kershaw logo “k” – is exclusive to Kershaw and enhances grip. A liner lock secures the Shuffle’s blade open in use, but closes easily when its tasks are done.
As a utility knife, a work knife, or just a great multi-function pocketknife, the Shuffle is the right choice. And if you want an eye-catching look in a new knife, with the Shuffle “snow,” you can’t go wrong.
This Kershaw folding knife features a 2-1/4″ plain drop point blade made from 8Cr13MoV steel.
8Cr13MoV steel and the MoV (or Cr) series of steels come from China and are comparable to AUS-8 but containing slightly higher carbon content. You routinely get great value for money with this steel and Kershaw have perfected the heat treatment process to bring out its best. 8Cr13MoV means that this knife’s steel contains roughly .8% carbon and 13% Chromium. 8Cr13MoV is a very capable steel with no real weaknesses. Top knife makers compare it to AUS-8. It maintains its edge well, but is not as abrasion resistant as VG-10 or S30V. Edge stability is good, which means the edge can be thinned well. We’ve found that this steel is among the easiest to hone. Kershaw’s 8Cr13MoV steel is usually hardened to HRC 58-60.
Drop point blades are a style of knife blade that angles on the spine of the blade from the handle of the knife to the tip of the blade. This allows the spine of the blade (where the blade is thicker, and thus stronger) to continue forward to the tip of the blade. This way the point is also aligned with the center axis of the knife, canceling any pitch momentum when stabbing.
The curve on the top of a drop-point blade is always convex, which is what differentiates it from a clip point blade. The drop point is a standard design for hunting.
This folding knife has a Glass-filled Nylon/K-Texture Grip handle with a black finish.
