Speed assist spring broke a month in.

The knife is okay I ordered due to the positive reviews on YouTube and other web reviews.
The shape fits well in pocket and provides good clearance when accessing things in my pocket. The knife just isn't something that I saw and handled and really like. It's an okay knife, waiting on Kershaw to get a new spring 1/19 received 2/21 spring broke and this is not my EDC knife.
Great EDC knife

I own both this and the link. I prefer the GFN handles on both. Both are great knives for a variety of tasks. What sets the dividend apart is it's size and slim profile. It fits in the pocket easily and you probably will forget it is there. The steel is does not hold an edge for ever but is a breeze to sharpen. It is a wonderful slicer as the blade stock is very thin and the wharncliffe shape offers great utility. Fit and finish is outstanding as all Made in USA Kershaws tend to be. Awesome value
The Link but even better.

More compact, but otherwise very similar to last years Link 1776. Same blade steel which actually fares OK for a budget steel. Much easier to re-assemble than the 1776, these have stationary receiving end hardware, unlike the Link.
Probably buying more

I bought this for my girlfriend and she loves it. The other assisted flipper she had required a lot of force just to get open (kershaw zing w/g10). This one flips open with ease and is super lightweight. Seems like a very sturdy construction for such a light weight and inexpensive assisted flipper. Kinda makes me want one for myself. I currently carry a Skyline and a zt0450cf. This wouldn't be a bad addition at all.
