The Kershaw Fatback Knife has a rather slim handle. But to ensure you always have an extra secure grip, it does have some extra fat texturing. They call it the Kershaw Fatback Knife because it’s one very tasty knife. Like bacon. The handsome blade is a modified drop-point with a dagger-like shape. It opens easily with SpeedSafe assisted opening. The pivot is oversized and decorative. The handle is drilled to support our four-position, deep-carry pocketclip—so you can carry tip-up/down, left/right.
