Great Auto
This knife is called the “Launch” & it sure will launch a blade open. VERY sharp and a good EDC knife. My only complaint: I wish it had a lock as this one can - and has, opened in my pocket once.
Otherwise, a great knife!

The little knife built like a big one
My favorite of the launch series, I won’t admit how many but the 11 is awesome. With the bronze ring it would be stunning with a composite blade like the leek( hint hint) really love this knife

Keyshawn Launch 11 problem
I love just about everything about this knife but the release button. It is gritty and on occasion sticks. 100 dollars and my old boker opens much smother.

Great knife
I love this knife! Have had kershaw knives for a long time but this is my first auto. Size is perfect for edc. My only complaint is I wish there was a lock for the blade so it doesn’t accidentally open in your pocket. My most recent unexpected opening happened while working with cattle where I had to get in the squeeze chute with them. Long story short the blade opened in my pocket and I didn’t notice until I squatted down and it stabbed me in the stomach. That is after it went through the pocket, jeans, rubber rain bibs, back through the bibs and my shirt.

Great EDC
Perfect little knife. Sleek, light, simple and sharp. Once you have an automatic, you wonder why all knives aren't. Also makes you aware that we have been hoodwinked for decades about automatics. Just a simple tool that works wonderfully.

It’s almost perfect in every way. The size and shape of the blade make it easy to sharpen, and the CPM-154 steel is my favorite for EDC. Aluminum handles make it lightweight enough to be comfortable, and with the black finish it should patina very well with use. The proportions between both make for a beautiful knife open or closed.

It’s amazing.

Very nice
Solid lock up. Quick, smooth action. Pretty sharp out of the box. Perfect size for everyday carry and completely unnoticeable in pocket. After a month plus, the love affair is still strong. But, to be fair, I am a fan of Kershaw they make some truly classic EDC knives. Who doesn’t have a Leek?

My first Launch and favorite Kershae
I like the blade profile, sleekness, blade steel and overall length. The touch of color in the pivot collar and sculpting of the handle are nice touches. The cutout in the handle also provides considerably more control when opening the knife edging out my Piranha DNA. The only thing that would make it better would be some different handle colors.
