The Volt II brings the same versatile blade and handle style as the original, while upgrading it to a functional, tough, working knife. The Volt IIs 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blade is heat-treated and finished with a non-reflective bead-blast; bringing out its high-performance characteristics of hardness, strength, and excellent ability to hold a good edge. A classic, slightly drop-point blade makes the Volt II perfect for just about any general utility task. For secure grip and control, the Volt IIs handle has finger contours, diamond pattern and heavy jimping on the back of the blade. With Kershaws SpeedSafe assisted opening system, the Volt II can open one handed, so its ready to go when needed. A secure liner lock in the handle ensures safe, confident operation of the Volt II preventing the blade from closing during use. Designed by custom knifemaker RJ Martin, the Volt II is a worthy successor to the original and continues to be the ideal everyday carry.
