Crafted by designer Matt Diskin, the Launch 12 stands as the compact sibling to Kershaw's acclaimed Launch 8. Drawing inspiration from classic Italian stilettos, the Launch 12 introduces a stiletto style tailored for a modern generation. Weighing a mere 1.9 ounces, this lightweight marvel is an ideal companion for effortless everyday carry. Compared to its predecessor, the Launch 12 features a more compact design while retaining the distinctive stiletto flair. The single-edge, slim blade incorporates a deep top grind, reducing weight and enhancing the stiletto aesthetic. Integrated fingerguards on both the top and bottom of the handle ensure added safety by keeping fingers away from potential hazards.


Crafted in the USA, this automatic knife boasts stiletto styling in a more petite package. The CPM-154 powdered metallurgy blade steel excels in edge retention, corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness. The handle, constructed from lightweight and robust anodized aluminum, maintains a comfortably slim profile with a stylish carbon fiber insert. The low-profile push button enhances safety, minimizing the risk of accidental blade deployment.



Key Features:

  • Push-Button Lock: Ensures the blade remains open during use and releases with the push of a button for storage.
  • Reversible: Pre-drilled holes in the handle allow users to alter the tip position or the carry side.
