    • Hey Ken, the Rake isn’t here because technically its a 2010 model. The same thing goes for the Kershaw Tilt even though nobody has been able to get their hands on those yet.

  1. I have been trying to find the Kershaw Burst 1970 st since seeing it on Kershaw’s site. When will they actually hit the retail market?

    Thanks,
    Gary

  2. Hi Gary, we aren’t sure when exactly the Kershaw Burst is going to hit the market. Last year, Kershaw had some problems with their production and some of the models they announced for 2010 haven’t come out at all yet. Word is, that they got all of it sorted out and this years models will come out this year sometime, but unfortunately I don’t have any better answer than that.
