The only knife made by Kershaw to have been
serial numbered since it started production.

The oldest one we ever owned Kershaw Trooper #0357 was traded to a collector in the USA and the private price information is in the current report. We have added many recent actual prices that vintage Kershaw Troopers have sold for and will continue adding this tangible information to the report.

If you have a Trooper without the signed card or certificate of authenticity the extensive detailed list of serial numbers, production dates and actual sold prices inside the Report may help you discover the month and year your knife was made including what it is worth.

And speaking of dates we started working on the original Kershaw Trooper Report™ in 1998. The report was much smaller back then but it has grown as we have added many combinations of serial numbers and production dates and much more information for the numbered Troopers. A big thank you to all who have sent in many serial numbers and production dates for the Troopers. Your input is making the Kershaw Trooper Project a growing success.

This report has sold for as much as $25.55 on eBay.

A big thank you to all who have sent in many serial numbers and production dates for the Kershaw Troopers. Your input is making the Kershaw Trooper Project a growing success.

We need more years and serial numbers for all years of production.

We need more numbers especially for each of the following two years: 1999 and 2009. Even one more per year will help.

We want to continue enlarging the report by adding more combinations of serial numbers and production dates for the numbered Kershaw Troopers. If you have all five: the serial number, production date including month and year and whither your Trooper has a blood grove and type of handle ebony wood, Phenolic** composite or carved ivory handle please email or mail me the information. You can email me through CutlersCove.com and their form on the site by sending your information to - Attention: Trooper Project in the Comments section of the form.

Please send the serial number, production date and
yes/no blood groove* like example below.

Serial Number - Month - Year - yes/no Blood groove* - Type of Handle

Does your Trooper have a blood groove?

What type of handle material?

Examples: #22,347 - January 2000 - blood groove* - ebony wood
                 #33,996 - Febuary 2008 - blood groove* - phenolic**

If your knife was made in 2009 and a few years before please also include the type of handle material it has. It will be either ebony hardwood or Phenolic** composite handle. How to tell the difference --- ebony is wood (Nature made) and if you look close with a magnifier it has wood grain and Phenolic** is a smooth man made composite without grain.

* Blood groove: A fuller is a rounded or beveled groove or slot in the flat side of a blade (e.g. a sword, knife, or bayonet). Contrary to popular belief, the terms "blood groove" or any similar names are misnomers: the fuller was not designed to allow blood to flow from a stabbed person. A fuller is actually used to strengthen and/or lighten the blade, much in the way that an I-beam shape lends strength to a steel rod.
From Wikipedia

** Phenolic is a composite material like a bowing ball. Phenolic handle material was used on the original Kershaw Folding Field model 1050 and the original Kershaw hunting knives like models 1030 Deer, 1032 Big Skinner, 1034 Elk and 1035 Moose.

We have been working on the Kershaw Trooper Report for a long time, seventeen years, so if you take the current cost of $11.99 divide by 20 it works to be about 60¢ per year you are paying.
