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.
Scary Sharp, made in the USA!

This knife came out of the box as sharp as a straight razor, I'm in awe, sharpness is easily comparable to cold steel knives I've received. From what I hear N690Co is on par with VG10 and 154Cm when all three are at similar hardness, possibly slightly more corrosion resistant. Anyways the dash is quite light for the blade length, nice and thin like the blur (I personally can't stand thick folders.) The deep carry pocket clip is quite the bonus just like the Kershaw Al Mar Am 4.

Lastly the Trac tec inserts add some good palm traction on otherwise slick anodized aluminum handles, but trac tec will get grit and crumbs, dust, or paint in there so just watch out to keep it clean and grippy. Otherwise an amazing value for what you get and this knife is proudly made in the USA, what a home run Kershaw!

This is a sick and futuristic looking knife! It feels great in hand and has a very usable blade! The Speedsafe assisted action works incredibly well and the Trac-Tec inserts provides great traction. This is my first Kershaw knife and I hope to buy many more. I can't wait to see what Blade HQ and Kershaw collaborate on in the future!
