Amid the realm of knives, few possess the magnetic allure of out-the-front automatics. Following a meticulous journey of research, meticulous development, and exacting trials, the dynamic synergy of Kershaw's in-house designers and the artisanal craft of custom knifemaker Matt Diskin culminate in a groundbreaking creation: the Livewire OTF auto.
