The Misdirect is part of Kershaw’s popular Starter Series, value-priced knives that offer a variety of styles and solid performance. The Misdirect is no exception.
Its 2.9″ blade is a perfect size for everyday cutting tasks. The reverse tanto style ensures the tip is effectively positioned for piercing cuts and enables the Misdirect to slice through tough packaging and open quantities of mail with ease. Kershaw coated the blade with black-oxide and finished it in BlackWash, an attractive combination that can also hide scratches.
Access the capable blade with Kershaw’s tried-and-true SpeedSafe assisted opening, which helps you open the Misdirect with minimal effort. The efficient flipper double-purposes as a finger guard when the knife is open. The stainless steel handle is smooth, sleek, and modern. Bead-blasting gives it a non-reflective matte finish that looks great. The Kershaw logo is lasered on the handle instead of the blade to maintain the Misdirect’s clean and minimalistic style.
The Misdirect’s pocket clip can be positioned on the left or right of the knife in the tip-up position. A textured backspacer transitions into a handy lanyard hole at the end of the handle. If you’re looking to get started in the knife world—without busting the budget—don’t miss the Misdirect.
