Kershaw Flitch Review

The Kershaw Flitch is an eye-catching blade that takes some cues from Kai’s ZT line. With a modified drop-point blade and top swedge. The ZT 0566 is the closest to the size and weight of the Flitch.

The blade is made of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, which can take and hold a sharp edge, yet resharpens easily. It is a decent budget steel that is also used in the knives in the Chinese Spyderco line, like the Spyderco Tenacious. The blade is stonewashed to help hide scratches.

The handle is comfortable and feels solid in the hand. The glass-filled nylon has a chamfered edge.

The Flitch is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening and a built-in flipper, that doubles as a finger guard.

The Flitch offers an exceptional EDC at an affordable price.
