Vapor III - RMEF Logo


The Vapor III is all stainless steel, all the time

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this knife goes to support the work of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. The Foundation works to ensure the future of elk and their habitat. Kershaw is proud to partner with the RMEF in the sale of the RMEF Vaport II. The Vapor III’s modern, not your father’s pocketknife design is matched by its amazingly silky smooth manual opening. Thanks to Kershaw’s meticulous manufacturing process and our precision fit-and-finish standards, the blade glides out smoothly and clicks into place with a solid, satisfying sound. With a little practice, you’ll be able to open and close your manual Vapor III one-handed. And look awesome doing it.

The drop-point blade provides cutting versatility and tip strength by putting plenty of metal at the tip. The 8Cr13MoV blade steel offers excellent hardness and wear resistance. And Kershaw heat-treats the steel to bring out its highest performance characteristics. For safe use, the Vapor III’s sturdy frame lock ensures a secure blade lock up, yet releases and closes easily. Choose the fine edged blade or the partially serrated one for added cutting versatility. The Vapor III makes a great utility knife and easily handles day-in and day-out chores around the workshop, home, or warehouse. With its strong all stainless steel construction, its tough enough for outdoor use, too. The Vapor III’s open, airy design lightens its weight and makes it easy to clean, too.



  • Manual
    There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Reversible
    Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
  • Frame Lock
    A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty
