Designed by RJ Martin, the Volt II has the same versatile blade and handle style as the original Volt, but with a hardworking 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blade and textured, black glass-filled nylon scales. With this iteration, the original Volt showpiece becomes a tough, working knife. And to make sure your blade is always ready to go to work when you need it, the Volt II opens one-handed thanks to Kershaw’s SpeedSafe® assisted opening system. A simple pull back on the flipper and the Volt II opens smoothly and easily. We think you’ll appreciate the versatility of the Volt II’s slightly dropped point blade. This classic shape is just about perfect for any general utility task. Partial blade serration just extends the Volt II’s capabilities and makes it easy to whip through materials like cord, webbing, or rope. For a secure grip and a solid, satisfying feel in the hand, the Volt II has finger contours on the handle, diamond-patterned, glass-filled nylon handles, and heavy jimping on the back of the blade. The Volt II’s pocketclip is reversible for tip-up or tip-down carry. And did we mention that you get all this at a value price?
