My new favorite EDC
Curtis C.
The Kershaw products I have owned in the past have usually been what I call "hit or miss", but not this knife. The deep finger choil, handle grooves, and jimping offer a grip not normally found in aluminum folders. The action was just a little stiff out of the box, but a little oil and a few dozen openings solved that. The blade came scary sharp, to the point where I didn't have my usual OCD desire to sharpen a brand new knife. Add in the Made in USA with premium blade steel, and I am already fighting the urge to get another with the OD green handle.
A Top Notch USA Made Automatic At A Bargain Price

Though they could get away with cutting corners with an automatic at this price and justify it, they don't. This knife is in my opinion superior to knives that cost twice as much in design (this is the most prominent finger choil of Kershaws Launch series.) and equivalent in the materials used. Feels great in hand and deploys very nicely. It's also made in the USA, so that's a big plus!
