Yes, yes, we know. The vast majority of you called us out on our little joke when we said that Kershaw was killing off all the flippers from its product line yesterday. And for good reason, as it was of course a prank! Kershaw will not be discontinuing their flippers, nor will they be cutting them out of future product lines.
A huge thank-you goes out to the folks at Kershaw for playing along with us yesterday when they shared our link on their Facebook page. To say the least, that really helped sell it! :)
Many of you caught on to our trick early on, and a couple of you actually pointed out the fact that we’ve done something similar before, as last year we announced that the Spyderco Delica 5 was being released: sans Spydie-hole. We of course cleared the air the day after April Fools last year, just as we’re doing today.
And now, to give a you a little more peace of mind, I present you the before and after of the photoshopped image:
Sleep well tonight, Kershaw fans!

THAT WAS BRUTAL!!! As a prankster myself, I will absorb this one and remember how it feels when I do that kind of thing to others.
