Decent knife
Aaron R.
This is an average spring assisted knife, not a tank and not junk. The weakest link in this knife if the liner lock. If you're looking for a good spring assisted knife that won’t break the bank this is one of them.
Cameron R.
I have always loved USA made Kershaw knives (Not a fan of china made kershaws) and this knife is one of my favorite speed safe kershaws. It is razor sharp out of the box! I have never used this steel before and so far it is doing great. I would recommend this knife for anyone looking for a good USA knife for a good price.
Couldn't be better

If you are considering getting a Kershaw or even just an assisted open flipper, make this one your first. I own my share of knives and this is so far one of my favorites. It came out of the box razor sharp and was so smooth that I thought there was something wrong with my knife. When open it feels natural and comfortable in the hand, and you barely even notice it in the pocket. All in all, this is an outstanding knife and is worth every penny.
first impressions
Nick K.
it came out of the box razor sharp. the handle scales are super grippy in all the right places. as soon as it was out of the box I had shredded through all of the cardboard in my apartment and needless to say it is still shaving sharp. I am really excited to see how n690 holds up.
