The Kershaw Burst is sure to draw the eye and plenty of positive comments. The handle is injection-molded, glass-filled nylon; a stout locking liner secures the blade during use. The Burst also includes a reversible pocket clip. The Burst has great assisted opening action, just give the flipper a push.
The Burst 1970ST has a stonewash finished blade with a partially serrated edge.
The Burst was one of my first purchases from Kershaw, and at the price point, there is nothing I could be disappointed about. The 8Cr13MoV takes a very fine edge, but will dull quickly if put to hard use against course materials like cardboard. The assisted flipping action has been reliable and is quite fun to use, providing a rapid and solid lockup every time it fires. The handle fits the hand well, but the glass reinforced nylon can feel a bit tacky and the texturing does little to offer any form of traction. Regardless, the knife is worth the purchase for someone looking for an inexpensive EDC option or entry level knife.
This is a nice and inexpensive EDC knife. I now own 2 for everyday abuse. Worth every dollar and then some.
Was one of my first knives (the plain version). I sold it and I really miss it now. I couldn't think of a better EDC for its price. Beautiful blade shape, the steel takes a keen edge so easy, and the ergos are great for this shape and size. Nobody could go wrong with it.
