Product Description

Amazon.com

The composite-blade Kershaw Rake folding knife is a great choice for close-in cutting. The Rake is outfitted with tough, wear-resistant D2 steel on the cutting edge and high-performance Sandvik 14C28N steel on the spine. The combination produces an extra-wide blade with a curved belly, providing ample slicing and slashing capability. A clipped point preserves piercing power, too. The knife opens quickly and safely thanks to the SpeedSafe ambidextrous assisted opening system. With SpeedSafe, the user can smoothly and easily deploy the serrated blade with one hand, either left or right. This makes it ideal for sporting and work situations in which one-handed opening is easier and safer, such as when hunting, fishing, or working with your hands on the jobsite. Other features include a built-in Flipper, a thumb stud, and a pocket clip

Product Description

Composite Blade coolness in an amazing looking knife. Kershaw’s Rake is a good-sized folder with show-off Composite Blade technology. A Composite Blade combines two steels in one blade and enables us to put each steel to work doing what it does best. In this case, we put high-performance Sandvik 14C28N stainless on the spine and most of the blade. With increased nitrogen in the formula, 14C28N provides both good corrosion resistance and high hardness. The cutting edge is high-carbon high-chromium D2 steel. It’s only slightly stain resistant but it provides the razor edge and the easy re-sharpening of high-carbon steel. In time, expect a patina to develop along the edge, which will help protect against corrosion. With the rake-like tines at the Composite Blade joint, the Rake looks cool and is sure to spark plenty of conversations. But that’s not all it’s got. The Rake is extremely practical, too. Its blade has a big, curved belly for ample slicing and slashing capability. A clipped point preserves piercing power, too. The knife opens quickly and safely thanks to the SpeedSafe assisted opening system. With SpeedSafe, you can smoothly and easily open the blade with one hand, either left or right, using the flipper or built-in thumbstud. This makes it ideal for sporting and work situations in which one-handed opening is easier and safer, such as when hunting, fishing, or working with your hands on the jobsite. Made in the USA; SpeedSafe assisted opening; Liner lock; Flipper and thumbstud; 3-position (tip-up/tip-down one side; tip-up other) pocketclip; Steel: D2/Sandvik 14C28N composite, stonewashed finish; Handle: Textured G-10; Blade length: 3.4 in.

Wow, what a great knife.

The flipper and thumb stud deployment systems both work very well with the assistance of the torsion bar "speed safe" opening system.

This is an excellent knife and I wanted it badly enough to over pay for it by about 20 dollars. I found it later on AG Russell at a lower price. There is a high demand since it was featured recently in one of the popular knife magazines. There were limited supplies and I don't believe at this time 2/24/11 that it is available on Amazon. AG Russell states that their quantities are limited, so you should call them to see if any are in stock. This being said, I am quite pleased with this knife but wanted to share some discrepancies and observations.

The description states: "Kershaw's newest composite-blade knife. The Rake features ADP 189, a high-end Japanese powdered steel, as the cutting edge and high performance Sandvik 14C28N for the spine, SpeedSafe assisted opening and a built-in Flipper make it fast and easy to open."

First, I see no evidence the cutting edge is ADP 189, rather it is CPM 02. I did a little research and could find very little on the ADP 189 steel, however, the CPM 02 seems to be a respectable quality steel and also used on the Kershaw Tyrade, which I am having difficulty finding a place to purchase.

Also, the cutting edge is not as dramatically different in shading and color as on the picture. Comparing this blade's composite interface with the Junkyard Dog II composite blade, there is a significant difference between the two. The Junkyard Dog has a very noticeable difference in shading and coloring between the spine steel and the edge steel. The Rake's interface blends much less dramatically between the spine steel and the edge steel. The Junkyard Dog II has an almost jigsaw pattern, the Rake has an an almost "zipper" like appearance.

However, I am not displeased with this knife in the least.

I got this knife to use as an everyday carry (EDC) and it excels at that purpose. When I first pulled the knife out of the box it seems a bit thin to me but after carrying it a few days I really appreciate the thinness and flat shape of the G10 handles because the knife just disappears into my jean pocket, I literally can't feel it in my pocket as I sit here writing this. The blade snaps open crisply, without being too over the top in it's snap. The pointer finger recess and thumb rest are grooved and give great control, which is good because this blade is big for an EDC style knife. Aesthetically the shape and flow of the knife is near perfect, I just love the way this knife looks. Out of the box it was OK sharp, but a few passes with a hone and I was able to shave arm hairs. So far it's stood up to a few utility tasks without a problem.

The Rake is not perfect and has its flaws but it sure is a great knife and a great value for what you get and I liked it so much that I could overlook the little things. First, it comes with the clip so that it is point down when the majority of people and common sense prefer point up. The clip is movable but seems a little small for the size of the knife. Only time will tell if it holds up. The Kershaw Clash has a more substantial clip for a smaller knife. The G10 handles are super grippy but a little too short for comfort (my biggest complaint) of the pinky finger. I find that it is not too uncomfortable though but definitely room for improvement. Like many other reviews, the blade is not perfectly centered when closed but close enough and this wont effect performance. Finally, the thumb studs are useless added weight as they are too hard to effectively use and get enough of a grip on as the G10 handles are too close to them. If it weren't for the flipper, this would be a deal breaker but the flipper works great.

What I like about the Rake: Solidly built without being too heavy, Beautiful overall look with very unique blade, Substantial blade thickness for strength, Great satin blade finish, cpm-d2 steel for edge retention, Fantastic action and smoothness of blade deployment, outstanding value of what you get for the price. This knife deserves a 4.5 star rating. Fix the few little things and it would be an easy 5 star.

To Lockeness monster,
Thank you for the heads up on the thumb stud deployment. I was trying to use it from a horizontal angle also at first and found them useless and too close to the G10 handle. Now, it works like a charm pushing the studs from the bottom towards the tip like you recommended.

First Impressions: This Oregon, USA made knife feels very well made and shaves hair and slices paper without any sharpening. It is a very cool looking design in my opinion and quite practical as well.
It has no play when opened and locked, and feels about perfectly weighted at 4.8 oz. The handle fits my medium to large glove size hand perfectly with no chance of slipping out. It is very ergonomic, but because of the design it may be hard for someone to hold with an extra large hand.
The flipper and thumb stud deployment systems both work very well with the assistance of the torsion bar "speed safe" opening system. It locks open every time with a powerful snap. I find the thumb stud more secure because you end up with your fingers gripping the knife much more securely than with the flipper. I really like that it has both options.
Pocket clips are often weak on otherwise quality knives, or are so strong that it's difficult to smoothly draw the knife. Not so with this knife - I find it perfectly balanced. I'm not concerned that it would fall out while hanging upside down or running but at the same time it is reasonably easy to draw. The clip can be moved for right side tip down (standard) tip up, or left side tip up.
The standard for measuring blade length which Kershaw claims to adhere to is from the outermost point on the handle or hilt of the knife to the tip. I get 3 5/16", while they claim 3 1/2". However because of the design you actually do have almost as much cutting ability as a 3 1/2" knife. So I'm not really complaining, I was just hoping it would be a bit longer. It is plenty long enough for most tasks however and the blade is very smoothly tapered so it works good for tasks like slicing an apple, etc.
