The Kershaw Natrix XL is a large, capable blade. Big enough to fight with, slim and well designed enough to conceal easily. Featuring a heat treated blade, it’s tough enough for any job around the campsite.

The super smooth opening and pocket clip placement mean its easy to get into action. The frame lock means it’s not coming out of action until you’re ready for that. My only slight gripe is that the shape of the handle isn’t entirely ergonomic. But that’s only a slight gripe.

If you’re looking for a larger folding knife under $100, check out the review below and see if the Kershaw Natrix XL is good for you.
