Description

Description

The Skyline is one of Kershaw's most popular knives and for good reasons: it is slim, pocket-sized and elegant. This Skyline features a stonewash finished steel blade. The knife opens easily with the flipper, using just the index finger of either hand and a flick of the wrist, or use the dual thumb studs. The steel liner lock secures the blade in place. The textured black G-10 scales offer a secure grip in the hand with a deep index finger groove. Includes a tip-down/up pocket clip. This is a top choice for an everyday carrying knife with its slim handle and great design.

It wasn't until I got one that I finally understand why this knife had so many great youtube reviews. Lightweight, compact, smooth action, ergonomic, sharp and not too expensive. One thing to note though, on mine, THE CLIP IS BLACK.

Two minor complaints:

1) The black clip (I love the color) at first left some black residue wherever it was clipped. It doesn't do it anymore, but I have one pair of pants with a dark spot on one pocket lip, so try clipping it on some paper or cardboard or something first.

2) The index finger groove, while very ergonomic for holding the knife, does get in the way of operating the liner lock for me. I have long nails and cannot hit the liner with my thumb because my nail gets in the way. Not a big deal though since I learned to reach around from the other side with my index finger to close it, but just be warned if you have long-ish nails.

Again, these are minor complaints (still 5 stars).

I have heard many complaining about the clip positioning leaving too much of the knife out when carrying tip-up. I have not had any problems and actually like the clip position. The clip is tight and with a G-10 handle to clip on, the knife will not slide out of your pocket, and the inch or so sticking out of your pocket makes it easy to pull out and open.

Overall, I really love this knife. If you're on the fence about this knife, get it! There really isn't much (if anything) else in this price range (low to mid $40s) that I would get over the Skyline for EDC.
