Kershaw 3490 Seguin Assisted Opening.
With a Les George design, functionality is always Job 1. You'll see it on full display in the new Seguin ("sig-EEN"). It has everything knife enthusiasts have come to expect from Les' knives and more. Because in addition to its practicality, the Seguin also offers truly eye-catching style.
At nearly 5 ounces, the all-stainless-steel Seguin feels solid in-hand. It opens with authority thanks to Kershaw's SpeedSafe assisted opening and a substantial flipper. Added jimping on the flipper gives it additional "tooth" so it's even easier to open your knife. The Seguin's 3.1-inch blade is a perfect, mid-sized option for a full range of cutting tasks. The 8Cr13MoV blade steel takes a mean edge and is easy to re-sharpen. Gray PVD coating enhances hardness and protects the blade.
The durable stainless steel handle stands up to just about any working condition—hot, cold, wet, or dry. Les even included his characteristic index finger contour for greater blade control. But it's the handle's heavily machined texture that immediately gets attention. Additional line texturing can be found on the aluminum backspacer, giving the Seguin an attractive, integrated appearance.
The single-position deep-carry pocketclip wraps around the handle into an internal pocket, where it's secured with the backspacer screws. This means that the knife slides easily into its deep-carry position, without any pocketclip screws obstructing the path to the pocket.
And in case you were wondering, Les named the Seguin in honor of Juan Seguín, a hero of the Texas Revolution.
