Above all else, an EDC pocket knife should be practical. It should be easy to hold, easy to open and easy to wield. It doesn’t matter how affordable a knife is if it can’t maintain a sharp edge against the common tasks it might come up against, like opening boxes. And it doesn’t matter how pretty or well-made it is if those same factors make you reluctant to use it for the prying, cutting and scraping that knives are designed for. That’s why Kershaw’s Brawler is a good everyday blade — it’s practical.
The Brawler’s three-inch blade is made of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, which is also used often by Spyderco and SOG and is known as a quality yet affordable material. Kershaw added a black oxide finish to give the knife a stealthy aesthetic that, combined with the tanto blade shape, adds to the Brawler’s overall tactical appearance. The blade can be deployed with a thumb stud or a flipper, and it includes Kershaw’s SpeedSafe technology, which kicks into action to speed up deployment as you unfold the blade.
Normally $50, the Brawler is now down to just $24 on Amazon. It’s a worthy candidate for taking on everyday chores, and that price, it’ll make a great stocking stuffer too.
