Bigger hype
Jason C.
This knife is a bigger version of the Kershaw hype. The blade is angled a different way which makes it interesting. Has an excellent weight for its size. Comes in 3 other colors.

Excellent knife! I've had 100's of knives in my life (I'm 75 years old) and I have about 100 knives now,and I stick with my evaluation. The blade was well centered in the frame and very sharp. The grind on the edge was very even all the way down the blade, and the blade grind over all is very well done with no visible grind marks. The coloring on the handle is even and no blotches. The lock-up is great, no movement horizontally or vertically. The speedsafe system is very good and quick. I would say this knife is better than the asking price! If I had anything negative it would be that it weighed a little bit more than I thought, but not a deal breaker. All in all, a great EDC/work knife, AND it's made in the U.S.A. Great job BladeHQ and Kershaw!
