The Clash is an excellent new knife from Kershaw. It features SpeedSafe assisted opening; simply give the flipper a push with your index finer and the blade comes out automatically and stays open via the steel liner lock frame. The handle is a lightweight Polyimide® resin with sure-grip texturing and an truly ergonomic shape that fits naturally in your hand. The drop point blade is bead blast finished 8CR13MoV stainless steel with a plain edge. The Clash is an exceptional value in the world of EDC knives and comes with a pocket clip for tip-up or down carry.
I have owned one of these knives for over 5 years now and I love it more now than the day I got it. I don't carry it much anymore as it is pretty beat up. The design on this knife is amazing the ergonomics are solid and you can really lock your hand onto it. This knife was the first one to get me into knife collecting. I now own multiple kershaws with speedsafe and many other higher end knives (spyderco, benchmade, etc..) I have sold a few of them but I know that this one will stick with me forever. Buy it, it's cheap, strong and just begs to be used. The only complaint I would have would be the large pocket clip. It's a great deal and you won't be disappointed.
This is not a knife that will last forever, but as long as you know that going into it, you will not be disappointed. One of the best assisted opening knives I own, it is very solid when open, and the blade does not have much movement at all. The lock is great, and is easy to disengage, but does not feel like it will give out at any second. Highly recommend this knife!
I lover this little blade. Came out of the box incredibly sharp. Carry it every day as a back up.
The price and durability make this knife a good beater. I used this knife a lot while I worked at a hardware store. I ended up giving it to a friend who works in AV and he loves it. This knife was hard used by two people and it's still working well. There are only a few issues I have with this knife. 1) The pocket clip is really awkward. 2) the blade and the plate that covers the Speed safe spring easily rust. You will need to check this knife for rust often. Build quality: 4 stars Materials: 3 stars Aesthetics: 2 stars Personal likability: 4 stars
Sweet little blade. Smooth action and sharp steel.
