Kershaw knows what goes into a good pocket knife. Introducing one of their most popular models, the Skyline! It's mid-sized and elegant with all the strength and smooth action you expect from a quality folder.

For those in the market for a reliable everyday-carry knife, this is a high-quality, high-value option that's sure to put a smile on your face.

Customer Reviews

cool knife
Hector B. on May 31, 2021

good quality but lightweight, feels sturdy and really sharp

Great Knife
Kurt S. on Jan 23, 2020

The knife is better than expected. The blade pattern is wonderful and the construction is top notch. Still working to get the action the way I want it work.

Skyline Damascus
James L. on Nov 24, 2019

First ever Damascus knife. Very impressed with pattern on the blade. Have a considerable number of Kershaw knives because of the option of tip down witch is my favorite. This is my first Skyline. Keep up the good work. Thanks

Awesome Knife
Tristan M. on Oct 31, 2019

I love this knife. the ergonomics fit very well in my hands. Its at the right size too, not to big but not to small and the Damascus looks very nice. Added aftermarket scales to make it look very nice Cons: -knife coating is sensitive and may wear off - clip is small - need to play with pivot to get clean deployment

Great knife
Colby W. on Oct 9, 2019

Light as a feather, damascus blade, what's not to love? You have to give it some wrist action as others have mentioned to fully flick out, but it's not a big deal.

simple and efficient
Edward W. on Oct 3, 2019

simple design, light in the pocket. has multiple scales available to customize the blade. great EDC for the price.

Richard S. on Aug 28, 2019

It's light and oh so gorgeous. If you want a Kershaw that screams classy then this is it. As others have pointed out the deployment is stiff and requires a wrist flick.

Awesome EDC
Kelly C. on Jul 17, 2019

Blade is a beauty and sharp outta the box! Handle has a nice texture to it. Flips out nicely with a little wrist action. Digging it, great price too!!

Great EDC
Thomas M. on Apr 5, 2019

Was skeptical of this knife when i recived it but that soon changed. Simply pressing down the flipper dosen't fully open the knife but i find it fun to flick it out. This is probably one of the best EDC knifes you can get at a reasonable price.

Adam n. on Mar 20, 2019

I’ve had this knife for a year and love it. I put some titinum scales on it and am about to put on some barrel spacer and a deep carry pocket clip to make it even better

Clayton p. on Jan 19, 2018

Man I love this knife. I added titanium handle scales to it and now this thing is just a beast. Not to mention everything you need to upgrade Yours is also sold on this site.

Awesome Knife
Anthony M. on Jan 7, 2018

I bought this knife a few months ago and I have loved it ever since. The Damascus blade looks great and flipping action is smooth after breaking it in. Blade is razor sharp out of the box. Overall, this knife is well built and very light. It's a great everyday carry.

Nice edc
Chris F. on Jan 5, 2018

This is an excellent knife to start your damascus collection

Gorgeous blade
Julio P. on Jan 5, 2018

This is one of my favorite steel types! I’m glad I finally have this knife. Blade HQ your awesome!

Very well built blade!
Zack l. on Jan 5, 2018

For a blade as beautiful and well built as the Damascus kershaw skyline, you sure can’t beat the quality and price.

Beautiful blade. Feels great to have it
Jaymes P. on Mar 7, 2017

Bought this knife for my birthday a couple weeks ago. Loving it so far. As others had said, it didn't open with one finger when I first got it. However after a consistent amount of just working with it. It seems to open on command now. The action is smooth, and near effortless. As for the blade itself. The Damascus is beautiful. Its the reason I bought this blade after all. Mine came with a perfect wood grain look to it, and I couldn't be happier. Obviously, it came out of the box sharp, but not "shave the hair off your arm" sharp. More like "will cut through paper smoothly' sharp. Not a big deal, as I don't expect that kind of edge out of the box on any blade. The only regret I have is I don't have a decent sharpener for it yet. Maybe for my next birthday...

Best edc ever
Brian O. on Feb 28, 2017

I waited 6 monthsfor this knife to be in stock and When I got it it was awesome except for a small forging blemish on the top of the blade. Blade HQ took the knife on return and I spoke with someone who on the phone personally picked out a replacement. It was smooth and centered right down the middle with no flaws. I couldn't be happier.

Like a spring assist!!
Bevan T. on Feb 12, 2017

Going off the last review, give this the spa treatment and Boom! Wrist action can be left for other activities, don't go there lol. Bronze washers allow easy maintenance to keep the action smooth and respectable. Sharp as a $2000 suit OTB

Favorite Knife I Own
Jaron J. on Jan 30, 2017

I absolutely love this knife. Ive had mine for a little over 3 years now and carry it everywhere I go. I beg to differ with the people who say you cannot deploy the blade without a wrist action. I can make it effortlessly deploy with a firm push from the index finger. The steel is easy to put an edge on, and stays sharp for quite a while. also, the G10 scales are great for opening bottle caps!

Knife Review
Diego B. on Dec 13, 2016

Excellent knife. The damascus steel looks great on the knife. I have the satin blade one as well and it is just as great. Need to get the carbon fiber one as well.

Can't be happier
Matt C. on Jul 31, 2016

This knife is amazing! I honestly couldn't be happier with this knife. It has a nice blade, good action, and is super light weight. Worth ever penny! If you don't have one of these already, you need one.

Damascus/Carbon Fiber
Arturo G. on Feb 2, 2016

I've been wanting a Damascus knife with carbon fiber scales for a long time. Then I noticed BladeHQ has what I want in two separate Skylines. I had to get them both and combine them. It's definitely the best of both worlds.

Fantastic EDC knife
Wyatt S. on Dec 26, 2015

This is one of the best Kershaws I've had. Very smooth knife. It's also extremely light and comfortable. It's slim so I barely notice it in my pocket. Came very sharp. Plus on top of everything the steel is damascus which is just beautiful. You won't be disappointed

great knife at a great price
Jason E. on Oct 5, 2015

I put my 10 year old Kershaw away for an even better every day carry. Love it... lightweight, built well and feels great in hand as it is certainly ergonomic.

great edc for good price
Tyler S. on Oct 3, 2015

This knife wasn't perfect out of the box, I had to make a few adjustments. However, after that, this knife has been perfect for my edc tasks. Getting damascus for 65$ is awesome too

Skyline, with the damascus style
Hunter L. on Jun 8, 2015

This is a wonderful knife. Lightweight, great ergonomics, and ready to do work. With a good looking blade.

Real Damascus, Real Performance, Real Beauty
Dylan W. on Feb 13, 2015

This knife is a Kershaw celebrity, the Skyline, with a dressed up Damascus blade that sets it apart from all others. For $59.99 you will NOT find another USA built Damascus blade that is not fake or integrally compromised. When these knives come into stock (they sell quick) snag one.

Reece M. on Oct 11, 2019

Decent knife, a lot smaller in my hands then I thought it'd be. There's a strange protective coating they put over the blade that begins to wear off visibly after use. I suggest using alcohol to rub it all off.

Great EDC
Luke T. on Nov 14, 2018

The blade is beautiful, and it fits incredibly well in my hand. It does require a bit of a wrist flick to open all the way, but once you get used to it, it isn't a big deal. It's a great EDC knife! Edit: after working it in I no longer have to flick my wrist. Only downside is blade coating deteriorates really quickly.

Great EDC Blade
Grace B. on Aug 24, 2018

I love this knife. It’s simple and beautiful and it’s got a permanent place in my EDC rotation, however Kershaw needs to work on their fit and finish as I had to do subtiantial matinence to get the blade centered, oiled and sharpened straight from the factory. Otherwise very happy with this knife. Carried it for about 2 years now.

Hall. Of. Famer.
Anthony M. on Jan 5, 2018

Every knife nut I know or follow online says the Skyline is a HOFer as far as EDC is concerned. Not only is it the right size to fill multiple needs it has also replaced my Kershaw OD-1 in my daily rotation. She was getting a little long in the tooth.

Awesome Damascus
Erik N. on Jan 5, 2018

great knife

Great...with one issue.
James C. on Jan 25, 2017

As most people seem to agree, the flipper doesn't open the knife all the way without wrist action. Couldn't seem to find a good point between loosening it that would actually allow easy flipping and no blade play, so for now it requires some wrist action. The Damascus looks beautiful and the G10 had a great feel to it, not too rough but still grippy. I immediately replaced the G10 with Flytanium Titanium scales. It looks amazing with this combination. Flipper is a lot more stiff with the titanium scales but that is probably due to my reassembly. I'll be messing around with it a bunch to get it right. I would definitely recommend this to anyone, as long as they don't mind the flipper not fully opening the blade without also flicking your wrist.

It's alright
Zach L. on Dec 15, 2016

I'm going to start off with saying I wouldn't have spent $70 for this knife if I would have known these cons in the beginning. Out of the box the knife will not even flip half way open. You have to flick your wrist every time. I know it is not broken in yet but I have had cheaper flippers flip better than this. This is my first Damascus blade and was super pumped to see what it looked like in person. Upon opening up the box I noticed that grinds on the edge was uneven in multiple spots. That didn't worry me too much because 3 minutes on the WE system and I'll have it even and mirrored. Other than that I love the design on the knife. Fits in my hand perfectly. I will be buying Ti scales for it due to there only being one stainless liner on the lockup side. The other side is just g10 with no support. When you check the side to side blade play you can see the weakness on the bare side. In my opinion I would have spent no more than $40 on this knife. If it wasn't for the Damascus I wouldn't have purchased. I'll stick with Benchmades and Spydercos in the future.

Stiff action
Dan M. on Dec 12, 2016

Love the Damascus blade and the grip, action is very stiff and as of now have been unable to loosen it, opens only 1/2 way with flipper.

Started to rust in 1 month
SAUL G. on Oct 8, 2019

This knife overall looks amazing, however it started to rust extremely quick from normal use, I've had 2 leeks before and did not experience this problem. The warranty says it does not cover rust......
