Kershaw’s Bump knife was named so because of the hump that is in the middle of the cutting edge on the blade, designed by none other than Ken Onion. Ken has been designing knives for Kershaw for many years now, and his speed-safe mechanism has shot the company to the top of the sporting knife industry.


When you go into any sporting knife shop, a very large number of the mid-priced sporting knives tend to be Kershaws, and that is due in large part to Mr. Onion. The Bump is one of the more radical departures from conventional knives that has come from the company, but is a very popular and handy design. The blade is ultra-sharp S30V stainless steel, with a very effective blade geometry.

I was able to do much more controlled push cuts using the front edge of the blade, giving me the control of a wharncliffe blade, with the belly of a spearpoint. The 6AL4V titanium handles also presented no noticable hotspots, however with use I think the color will wear.

Opening the knife is as easy as 1-2-3. The speed safe assisted opener combined with the one-push trigger make opening it a breeze, and quick too. Just push the trigger and it fires open, like many assited openers on the market today. A solid Framelock keeps the blade locked open, and contact between tang and lock is solid. The Kershaw Bump is an extremely versatile and formidable knife.
