Sometimes you can tell that a tool is going to be useful just by looking at it. This is one of those times.
Like all the knives designed by custom knifemaker Les George, the Pico benefits from Les’ practical approach to knifemaking, informed by his years as a custom knifemaker as well as his stint in the US Marines. The result is a knife that’s designed to be used in the real world of work and every day tasks.
The Pico’s 8Cr13MoV blade steel, precision heat-treated by Kershaw, is strong, hard, and takes and holds an edge well. It opens quickly and easily with a flipper and Kershaw’s SpeedSafe assisted opening. The handle is pure steel, bead-blasted to a matte finish. A frame lock ensures solid blade lock up during use and closes easily when you’re ready to return it to your pocket.
While the Pico isn’t a fussy knife, it does have some touches that take it out of the ordinary. For instance, the blade features two different finishes: satin on the flats and stonewashed on the grinds. And the pivot is oversized and polished to stand out against the soft grey of the handle steel. A deep-carry, left/right reversible pocketclip ensures carrying convenience.
