Project ATOM blends traditional design with innovation in the Kershaw Arise. Featuring a blunt edge and no blade steel” the Arise is a new experiment from Kershaw. The design is inspired by traditional boot knives. Its distinct blade comes to a fine tip” and the handle’s cross-guard helps provide exceptional grip during use. In an emergency situation” the Arise’s blade tip serves as an effective self-defense tool. But during normal use” the fixed blade stands out as a fun conversation starter that’s aesthetically pleasing and easy to carry with the included lanyard hole.
