Take the Lateral to work, and it will get the job done. The all-black Lateral snaps into action with Kershaw's assisted opening. Its wide drop point blade features a slight recurve and a partially serrated edge, a great combination for a wide range of cutting tasks. Tougher materials like rope are no match for the partial serrations. The swooping handle texture is plenty ergonomic, too. And the reversible extra-deep-carry pocket clip rides subtly in the pocket during travel. The Lateral won’t break the bank, either. It’s the ideal work knife for your tool kit.
