Burst 1970st
Matt L. on Aug 19, 2023

I've had this knife for years and it is a super friendly every day beater knife. The knife is an awesome grip and feel, mine in particular needs sharpening but if you already like Kershaw and don't mind one of their Chinese designs as opposed to their USA manufacturing than this is a Great knife at the knife at the price point

I regret selling it
Miguel L. on Jan 15, 2018

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.

Inexpensive Carry Option
Dylan D. on Jan 6, 2018

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.

Awesome EDC
Jason B. on Sep 18, 2015

This is a nice and inexpensive EDC knife. I now own 2 for everyday abuse. Worth every dollar and then some.
