Kershaw 3470 Pico Assisted Flipper 2.9"
Sometimes you can tell that a tool is going to be useful just by looking at it. This is one of those times. The Kershaw 3470 Pico Assisted Flipper 2.9" is a perfect Every Day Carry Knife.
Like all the knives designed by custom knifemaker Les George, the Pico benefits from Les’ practical approach to knifemaking, informed by his years as a custom knifemaker as well as his stint in the US Marines. The result is a knife that’s designed to be used in the real world of work and every day tasks.
The Pico’s 8Cr13MoV blade steel, precision heat-treated by Kershaw, is strong, hard, and takes and holds an edge well. It opens quickly and easily with a flipper and Kershaw’s SpeedSafe assisted opening. The handle is pure steel, bead-blasted to a matte finish. A frame lock ensures solid blade lock up during use and closes easily when you’re ready to return it to your pocket.
While the Pico isn’t a fussy knife, it does have some touches that take it out of the ordinary. For instance, the blade features two different finishes: satin on the flats and stonewashed on the grinds. And the pivot is oversized and polished to stand out against the soft grey of the handle steel. A deep-carry, left/right reversible pocketclip ensures carrying convenience.
