The Launch 6's slim and wicked-looking knife features a premium CPM154 blade steel. This powdered metallurgy steel offers more uniform distribution of carbides, so it takes and holds an excellent edge. It also provides good corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and toughness. Black DLC coating adds non-reflectivity and enhances performance. It has durable anodized aluminum handles that lighten the Launch 6's weight and Kershaw machines them to provide a secure grip. This automatic knife opens with a recessed push button. They made the button level with the flat of the handle as a safety feature that makes it harder for the knives to accidentally deploy. Left-handers can use an index finger instead of the thumb to press the blade-release/lock button. The Launch 6 also has a reversible pocketclip and a pre-drilled lanyard tie-off hole.

I don't usually write reviews, but I felt like this deserved one. I ordered this knife to replace my launch 1 that turned up missing. I was impressed enough with the launch 1 to order two of the launch 6. The delivery was amazing this close to the holidays, and I am more than satisfied with the knives. My launch 1 required a little tightening of the pivot screw to stop it from bounce-back locking issues, but the launch 6 hasn't had a single flaw. K, so here's what i'm saying: If you're reading this review, you're probably considering buying this knife. This was my first experience with Hinterland Outfitters and I'd do it again. Love the knives and I'll probably use the five dollar coupon from this review :)
