Not for lefties... at all
Matthew M.
I have exerted the fact that almost every knife is built around right handers. What bothers me about this knife is that it is advertised to be a left her right hand carry. My knife came and first looks it was made for both. when I attempted to switch the pocket clips is quickly became apparent that it wasn't for lefties. although the holes for the left handed side were there they were not threaded. Since the hardware that comes on this knife are not long enough to reach the threads on the other side it was unusable for me. The knife is of average quality and there is nothing special about it. At 2o wish dollars for righties I could see it being worth it. I will probably re-purpose this knife and use it as a gift for a righty friend.

I like the idea of this knife more than this particular excecution. I liked the idea of two-tone handles but they slapped on a flat of G10 to an unmilled portion of metal handle. No milling on the handle makes it feel so much heavier than it should. I get that this is a ‘cheap’ knife. I do. But, with other Kershaws hitting it out of the park with their price point, feel and usability - I was really hoping for this one to do just as well. My particular knife is really hard to deploy, loosening the pivot screw just makes the blade super sloppy while barely affecting deployment ease, making the point of the Wave moot. And the thumb stud is placed a bit too far back to make deploying it with that very practical. It’s ‘fine.’ For $23-24, it’s fine. Spyderco’s Wave models outshine this in every way, but cost 3-4x as, trade off I guess.
Super fun and cheap

One of the best options for the price point. The number one most fun deployment system on the market at a fraction of the Emerson cost. Great for edc tasks.
Great Inexpensive EDC

Liked the color combo on this particular knife. Easy to carry and maintains its edge fairly well.
Sweet knife to see if you like the wave.

I wasn't sure if I would like the Emerson wave, so I picked up this guy and it works great. The philips and flathead screws are okay, I'd prefer torx. That's my only complaint. Other than that, it's great!
Awesome Knife

I got this knife while I was in the BladeHq store because of the price and I am a big fan of Kershaw and I love the Emerson design, so I saw it and thought best of both worlds. I really like this knife. It deploys very well and is very sturdy and strong. I use it a lot for work where I pry and cut with it all day and it is a beast of a knife. It doesn't have the best steel but for the price it's pretty good. Great knife if you're on a budget!
Great budget blade!

Solid design with great lock up and wave opening feature. Best of the emerson/kershaw collabs...just the right size for EDC. Would have like a better steel option but you cant beat it for the price. Already gifted two out!
