The ambidextrous crossbar lock has become extremely popular in the EDC folding knife community. With all the convenience and versatility the technology provides over standard liner and frame lock designs, it’s easy to see why. New in 2023, Kershaw has introduced four everyday carry knives featuring DuraLock, their take on the crossbar lock trend. Each of these knives features a consistent and attractively-modern design that looks good in your hand. We’ll introduce you to each one and explain why they’re great options if you want to add a knife of this style to your everyday carry today.
Bar Locks are great due to their simplicity, ambidextrous operation, and overall strength. That said, it is strange to see one on a Kershaw. Or is it just me?
