Seems like a pretty good deal for a quality automatic. Great reviews, CA legal, made in USA...

Final price was $68.80 shipped to GA, including tax ($5.10) and shipping ($3.71)

Its hard to find price history on this, but seems like generally goes for b/w $80-100.

There is a similar price at Optics Planet, but I have not bought anything from them and am weary of some their reviews.

Here is a link to some CA knife legal info. Based on this, it seems like there are some technicalities, but in the end, b/c it is under 2" it is legal to carry in CA.

I have two Kershaw Launch autos and they are amazing. Can't recommend the Launch series enough.

Made in the USA

Integrated backspacer

Push-button open

Push-button lock release

Single-position pocketclip (right tip-up)

Steel: CPM 154, DLC coating

Handle: Machined 6061-T6 anodized aluminum

Blade Length: 1.9 in. (4.8 cm)

Closed Length: 3.2 in. (8.1 cm)

Overall Length: 5.1 in. (13 cm)

Weight: 1.8 oz. (51 g)


Good steel, pretty light weight but blade is too small for me considering the price. And I like smaller knives.

They seem legit to me. I have never bought anything from them, but I looked at enough reviews to make myself feel comfortable...

I am far from a lumber jack, special ops, woodsman. But i spend a good bit of time outside, taking care of the lawn, dog walks/hikes with the fam, some golf and fishing, etc. I generally keep a pocket knife in my pocket and find a use for it close to every day. Definitely, opening packages/boxes and cutting tags, but a bunch of other stuff as well...

I used a pocket knife several times this saturday just weed-eating the lawn - cutting the twine and untangling the weeds that get wrapped around the spindle. Also, used a pocket knife to fashion a brace for a sunflower that was getting too big for itself. Good for cutting up fruit or meat snacks... All of this stuff, with forethought, you could certainly pack a knife. But to me, it is just a lot easier to [almost] always have a knife on me.

My other folding blades are all more like 3", which to me, is a great size for EDC. I am really looking forward to this small blade though to be more inconspicuous and take up less room in my pocket. I don't imagine I will lose too much functionality b/c of the size. Also, my wife will roll her eyes a little less than if I bought a larger auto.

I'm kind of a knife nut, and this is a great buy on a solid auto. I carry custom ProTech autos now, but still keep a Launch or two around. I just can't seem to let them go!

For autos, or any folder under $100 really, I like the Kershaw USA stuff. Just well-built, good looking stuff.

I love my kershaw launches. I carry my infidel daily but I also have a launch 1, 10, 8 and 5. This is a good price and kershaw is an awesome brand.

I've ordered several guns from them with no issues, also have ordered from optics planet multiple times with no issues.

Lol sorry for all the posts but if you use honey on optics planet it's 5 percent off and if you review an item you previously purchased you get 7 percent off coupon and a pop up just popped up to sign up for text messages and got 10 percent off.

State laws vary on autos, so check for your locality. CA allows short blade autos so those with disabilities that make it difficult to use regular folding knives can have practical access to folding blades. That is state specific, so CA legal is only important in CA. Oregon, as another example, has no restriction on autos.

GaG and OP are legit sites, but they can sell some junk.

Kershaw is fairly middle of the road to budget level. Kai (parent entity) uses Zero Tolerance and Shun for premium branding.

Haven't had an auto in years, there's no practical speed or ease difference with modern one hand folders. I still have one speedsafe, one of the Al Mar collabs. Get yourself a folder with a wave style opener if you think you need more speed. The blade is opened when it clears the pocket, done with the same motion as the draw itself.

That said, that's a good edc steel on this blade and the length is still practical for typical use.

Thanks for your response.. Too bad this isn't a little bit bigger
