I must say this is a fantastic knife and at $80 for M390, it's even better. I contacted Kershaw and they are sending me a free deep carry clip for it to make it even better. I carry this along with my Benchmade Bugout every day as both are easy to take along with me. Fantastic deal, so when it comes in stock, pick it up.
Great knife

I really like the way this knife fits my hand. It feels good. Plenty of heft in the blade to tackle anything a nice EDC could encounter. Blade was shave your arm sharp across entire edge from the factory.
I would quickly purchase this knife again. But, there are 2 small issues that took me by surprise. First, it takes considerable more force to open than my D2 leek. Not a huge deal, but noticible. 2nd, are the scales. When I first picked up the knife I thought they were plastic. Not much heft to them at all. They feel much lighter and more susceptible to damage than my leek. This is a little bothersome knowing how an EDC gets banged around. If they were more like my leek, it would be great.
Those are my only two concerns. The tension to open, not a big deal. The lightness of the scales, fairly concerning. Why doesn't Kershaw ship with a deep carry clip? I need one for each of my knives.
I love Kershaw

I have knives I like more, but this Kershaw Dividend is a nice knife and M390 steel to boot. I'm a new knife collector; scratch that, I'm new to collecting quality knives. The Dividend came razor sharp. Because of my giant hands and sausage fingers, I actually don't like aluminum scales, so I bought a cheap version of this knife, in hopes of swapping the Glass-Filled Nylon scales out for these aluminum ones. I have bought a lot of knives on Amazon but now it will be Blade HQ, they shipped incredibly fast and I love the informative videos. I watched them all and need more. Great knife, I'm seriously considering ordering another for my brother's Christmas present.

I was looking for a thin, light weight, knife with a good steel to carry daily. Iím going to get a deep carry pocket clip for mine. Feels like a slightly bigger and beefier Leek.

M390!! USA made! $80!

Really good deal for m390. Very light and the aluminum has a light texture to it so its not too slippery. My favorite thing about this knife other than the blade steel is how thin it is. Fits in your pocket and u don't know it's even there.
Perfect for EDC

You would have a tough time finding a better knife in M390 for under $200, let alone under $100. FAST action, very snappy, light, and great lockup. The aluminum handles have a great feel. This was the perfect upgrade to my Leek.

I have not put much use on this knife since I got it for work and I don't need a knife that often at work, however in all the cutting tasks that this knife has been used in it has preformed very well. Not to mention this knife has m390 for only $80!
Wonderful!

I've carried many Kershaw's as my daily carry over the years and I love the brand, even the cheaper ones. This is just leaps and bounds better than any other I have carried.

The action was really tight at first but a little loosening, oil and work made it open as smooth as butter and the edge came super sharp and with it being M390 I don't expect to have to do much more than maintenance on the edge.

I had ordered and gotten in the standard Dividend after not finding this version anywhere for sale and on a whim I came here a day later and there it was, so the other version went back in the box and this was ordered and I couldn't be happier with that choice.

Great daily carry knife!

Pros:
-M390, USA made and priced under a C-note!
-Great action and feels stout

Nitpicks:
-Sprint run (availability)
-Feels slightly heavier than it should for it's size

When I first got this knife, I told myself I would EDC it for at least one month before going back to my tried and true 940 Osborne. I then proceeded to carry this model for over 9 months straight (until I got a Bugout - variety is the spice of life). For the money, you will be hard pressed to find a better overall EDC.
Perfect EDC

M390 steel at this price point. For that, it gets 5 stars. It's not hard to overlook its faults because of its value.

What's great:
Sharp out of the box and handling its duties at the warehouse just fine.
The assisted opening is snappy.

There are a few things I would change about this:
1. Add a choil. The 3 inch blade can get a little unwieldy without the ability to choke up.
2. I have small hands, but the handle is pretty thin so grip can be a bit funky. It sometimes wants to twist when I'm using it.
3. The aluminum handle can be slippery. You really have to make sure you have a good grip on this thing.

It's not a perfect knife and it's not even my favorite knife, but for the price point and quality of steel, it's a steal. =)
My favorite Kershaw

Great little knife. Great blade. M390 steel? Are you kidding me? Kershaws have been hit or miss for me, but this little guy is fantastic. Ergonomics are pretty good. One complaint is that this is a deceptively heavy knife considering how small it is. It is not well balanced, although that doesn't mean a lot to me.
A Quality Piece

I've owned several Kershaws, but this is my first one made in the good ol' USA. I say one, but I actually bought three, and all three are impeccable. Centering is dead-on, grind and sharpening is consistent, and fit and finish is top-notch. Ergos are great, and the SpeedSafe deployment is reliable with good punch. A quality build, made in the USA, with top-of-the-line blade steel, all at a bargain price? Yes please!
