The Misdirect is part of Kershaw's popular Starter Series, value-priced knives that offer lots of style and solid performance. The Misdirect is no exception. Its 2.9-inch blade is a perfect size for everyday cutting tasks. The reverse tanto style ensures the tip is effectively positioned for piercing cuts and enables the Misdirect to slice through tough packaging and open quantities of mail with ease. Kershaw coated the blade with black-oxide and finished it in BlackWash, an attractive combination that can also hide scratches.
