Kershaw used a variety of strategies to keep the Mixtapes weight down. For instance, the handle features cutouts in the front and back. (You can you even see the single-position pocketclip through this handle window, as it blends seamlessly with the rest of the knife.) The handle scales are glass-filled nylon, again for lighter weight. Additional weight relief is offered by the backspaceror lack thereof. The Mixtapes open construction is easy to clean with a cotton swab and without disassembling the knife. See? Simple. Finally, a secure inset liner lock reduces weight even more by eliminating the need for a full internal liner. The result is a pocketknife that weighs just 2.7 ounces.
