About the Purple Turquoise Kershaw Pocket Knife
A masterful marriage of fine steel with gemstone! Perfectly functional or collectible, this popular high-quality Kershaw Pocket Knife is accented with a handle of purple turquoise (see below) and stripes of black jet stone and stainless steel. The handsome purple mineral is painstakingly shaped, ground, polished and assembled by artisans in Santa Fe, New Mexico and applied to the factory-new knife. A stylishly sharp and practical gift!
What is purple turquoise?
Purple turquoise is created from natural Kingman turquoise stone from Arizona in which most of the desired aqua color is missing when mined. A purple color enhancement is added during the required stabilization of the stone. In addition, a bronze fusion process adds attractive veins of shiny bronze. This enhancing process provides interest to natural turquoise without natural aesthetic qualities and is still considered genuine stabilized turquoise by industry standards.
About the Kershaw Leek-style Knife
Closed, the knife is 4" long, the perfect scale to fit the hand, while being sized small enough for everyday carrying. The 3" combo blade (mix of straight-edge and serrated edge) is fashioned of sharp Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel for excellent edge retention and extreme resistance to corrosion. The reverse side includes a stainless steel clip that easily attaches to outer pockets or can be used as a money clip. The pocket clip may also be removed or reversed (giving the option of carrying with tip up or tip down) with the use of a small hex key or Allen wrench. Made in the USA.
About the Kershaw SpeedSafe Assisted Opening System
The Leek series features Kershaw's SpeedSafe opening system for smooth, easy opening by both right and left-handed users. It is specifically designed for sporting and work situations where one-handed opening is preferable and safer, but allows all ease of use in all everyday tasks. Simply pull back on the finger stud for a clean, smooth easy blade extension. A sliding safety lock ensures the blade stays securely inside the handle until the user manually releases it.
