Kershaw Link Knife

$69.99 at Kershaw

Hank Will, editorial director for MOTHER EARTH NEWS, has always had a place for Kershaw’s folding knives in his kit. Among the several models Hank uses, he finds the Link, with its SpeedSafe assisted opening, perfect for cutting the twine off large round hay bales while he’s feeding his sheep. “The knife holds an edge, opens and closes with ease, and clips securely in my pocket,” Hank says. “The BlackWash blade finish looks great and the works feel wonderful in my hand.” Because this knife has an aluminum handle, it’s the only folder Hank uses to process chickens.



Hank also says a Kershaw is comfortable and reliable as an everyday carry and as a general ranch knife. The knives are made in Tualatin, Oregon, and are backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Kershaw was founded in 1974 with a mission to design and manufacture high-quality tools.
