A folding knife like the Kershaw Cinder is a rare breed. Designed by one of knifemaking's greats, Rick Hinderer, this compact folder isn't notable just because it's small. The real feat in design is the three-finger grip that provides exceptional cutting power from the modified sheepsfoot blade. If that weren't enough, the Cinder also has a built-in bottle opener and a large elongated hole for keychain attachment.

Put a lanyard on this and you are able to flick it open with your thumb. I'm not joking. This thing is amazing and you should 100% purchase it if you're even thinking about it. Mine came perfectly centered and the blade is super easy to sharpen. I'm sure you'll love it too! Especially for the price.

Eric W. on Feb 22, 2019

So small, often forgotten about. I’ve actually forgotten to take it off while going through security checks. Crazy sharp though and seems well put together. All my friends want one after seeing it. Can’t ask for much more out of a blade barely over an inch long.

Perfect for a Bartender
Adam R. on Feb 27, 2018

I bought this for my brother-in-law and he loves it. He can't carry a much bigger blade since he lives in Chicago. Blade was sharp and it opened bottles properly. Does the job. Stonewashed blade was cool too.

Honestly everyone should have this knife
Greg d. on Jun 9, 2017

I am in college and i keep this on my keys and this knife is perfect. Its super light, Holds an edge, small, fits on my keys but doesn't get in the way. I think everyone should have this knife it's cheap and perfect for opening packages or bottles. There's no reason not to own this knife

Surprisingly good.
Matthew S. on Dec 17, 2018

I received this as part of the recent promotion, so I didn't have overly high expectations when I ordered this knife but I was very pleased with the product. I carried it around all day without noticing it in my pocket. Thumb stud location and wide access to the lock release make for easy one handed use. Overall shape holds still in your hand for thumb-on-back or index-on-back precision use. I haven't had it very long but my first impression is that its solidly constructed and in 10 years still will be. This seems like a great EDC knife if you don't need a longer blade length or some special feature.

Useful AF fam
Paul P. on Jun 18, 2018

I got one for me and one for the little lady. 2 days later she said she didn't even know she needed an EDC blade until she had this on her keychain a couple days. Everyone should have one on their keys. Handy handy handy and SHAAARRRP. Great mini blade. Great for opening beers. Just great all around. For 7 bucks there's no reason not to get one.

Andres Q. on Jan 19, 2018

Great little knife to attach to the keys. Very useful to open boxes. The bottle opener is a nice extra feature

Excellent key chain addition
Chase B. on Jan 5, 2018

This little guy is affordable and fun. I keep one on my key ring with my mail box key, and it is great for opening boxes and envelopes. Bottle Opener works pretty well too.

Everywhere knife
Kyle T. on Apr 3, 2017

This knife follows me everywhere on my Keychain. I use it predominantly as a backup or emergency EDC. I love the invisible nature of this knife and the slightly enhanced assurance it gives me when holding my keys. The blade has stayed sharp and I've used it to open bottles plenty! Handy extra blade!

You’ll use it more than you think
Devin B. on Jan 5, 2018

I’m not sure how I accuired this little guy but I’ve probably used it more than any edc I own. You have your keys ALL the time so it’s an awesome addition to the ring.

fantastic little knife
Ashton W. on Dec 18, 2016

Great blade material, stays very sharp. Works great as a keychain or a small EDC knife

Good bottle opener
Ricardo A. on Jan 5, 2018

Not the best knife, but it’s very small and opens bottles for 6$, it’s a steal.

Nice keychain knife
Gary M. on Feb 22, 2019

I carry this on my keychain in addition to another larger edc knife. It works really well as a keychain knife, small enough to carry easily but big enough to do the small everyday chores of opening mail, boxes, etc. I'm not a big fan of the blade shape as it seems to not work quite as well for those tasks as a nice drop point but still OK. The bottle opener works fine. Only downside is that it wasn't very sharp on arrival but didn't take long to put a good edge on it. For the price, it was a decent value. Bought some as gifts for my sons and son-in-law.

Cute little knife
Jacob B. on Dec 28, 2018

I received this for free, and I actually really like it. I love to carry this alongy regular edc. Since it's so small, it's non threatening. So you can pull it out almost wherever, and not going to have issues. It's also slim, and small enough to carry in any type of pants. Before my order, I would have never considered buying this, but now I'm thinking of getting one for my brother; as he also likes the knife.

Awesome little knife!
Stanley B. on Mar 19, 2019

I’ve had this on my keychain for the last 4 months and honestly have never used the actual blade because and inch is kind of small. But I see tons of use on the bottle opener.

Awesome keychain
Jason G. on Mar 21, 2019

Awesome keychain....super useful bottle opener with a little blade. Locks up decent and I almost forget I have it on my most of the time ..... Can't beat the price either

Better than expected
Ashkan E. on Dec 20, 2018

I got this as a freebie with the new promotion but honestly I'm impressed I certainly can't 1 hand open it it's just too small but the blade is sharp and slicey and the lock up is fine.

I want another one!
Jose L. on Jul 31, 2019

So I got this as promo here a few months back and carried it on my keychain everyday day till my girlfriend took it, now shes got the knife bug too.

Pretty nice keychain/pocket knife
Scott E. on Dec 21, 2018

Received for free with recent purchase. Honestly I’m pretty surprised how nice it is, but it’s smaller than I thought it would be. I know it’s a keychain knife but it’s tiny. My father-in-law loves small knives to just throw in a pocket, so I’m going to pay it forward and gift it to him. Thanks BladeHQ!

Probably the best knife of its size
Kenneth E. on Feb 1, 2018

This knife is great for key chain carry or just floating around in the pocket. It may be small, but don't let its size deter you. The way this knife is shaped, it is easy to get a lot of pressure on the blade. Since this knife has a liner lock you wont have to worry about the knife unlocking like a slip-joint. Also, the lock is really easy to move over when done because of the generous cut out in the GFN. Also, the bottle opener just adds to the features on this knife. Beautiful finish and a great knife to have handy every time of the day.

Cool little knife
Branden S. on Feb 22, 2019

Love the bottle opener on this piece. But be careful with it on your keys because I’ve had it open a few times and get me. Perfect for opening boxes and surprisingly strong liner lock.
