No the Fatback does not have a fat back. In fact it has a rather slim handle. But to ensure you always have an extra secure grip it does have some extra fat texturing on its glass-filled nylon handle.
Actually we call it the Fatback because it•s one very tasty knife. Like bacon.
The handsome blade is a modified drop-point with a dagger-like shape. The 8CrMoV blade steel with Kershaw•s precision heat treatment provides long-lasting edge retention as well as strength and hardness. Black-oxide coating offers an additional measure of blade protection and non-reflectivity.
The Fatback opens with Kershaw•s SpeedSafe assisted opening for smooth one-handed opening. The pivot is oversized and decorative. The handle is drilled to support our four-position pocketclip - so you can carry tip-up/down left/right whatever your preferred carry position. And finally the Fatback•s deep-carry pocketclip lets the knife ride securely and comfortably low in the pocket.
Liner Lock locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife•s steel •liner• the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.
