The Lightyear is an entry in the Kershaw Starter Series, designed as a slim, effective knife at an attractive price. The first thing users will notice about the Lightyear is its horn-like profile. Despite the handle's slim design, it stays ergonomic in the hand for long periods of time. The grippy handle is made of glass-filled nylon, featuring recessed grooves that are pleasing to the eye and hand. A spear point blade provides plenty of cutting area and strength for most work tasks. Finally, a deep-carry clip keeps the knife discreet in the pocket.

  • Slim profile is comfortable in the hand; doesn't take up much space in the pocket.
  • Opens quickly and easily with Kershaw's assisted opening and built-in flipper
  • 4Cr14 blade steel offers good corrosion resistance, easy sharpening, high strength; bead-blasted finish provides a subtle, matte look
  • Glass-filled nylon handle has patterned machining for secure grip
