The Kershaw Grid gives off a dark tactical vibe with sleek barracuda style. It has a modified drop point blade and a carefully contoured stainless steel handle. The blade has a black oxide finish that makes a perfect contrast with the gray titanium coating on the handle. These dark matte colors are an excellent choice for tactical applications. The blade can be quickly accessed with Kershaw's SpeedSafe system and a blade flipper. Includes a tip-up pocket clip that is reversible for left or right hand carry. Experience the tactical edge of the Kershaw Grid flipper knife.

this is my all time 2nd fav Kershaw knife aside from the launch 1, its hard to handle and open and close and open at first but it breaks in
I would compare this knife to the onion. And I think the even smaller version is the leek.( Same lock and overall design)Great feel, slim and solid profile. You do not notice the weight In your pocket due to the profile. Amazing blade length and durability(like all kershaw knives!!)
The knife is nice. It looks substantial in size, but mine measured out at 3.5" not 3.75". Seems sturdy like my other Kershaws, but it is noticeably slower opening than the EMT and Cryo that I already own. I'm not sure if that is a function of the size of the blade or something else. I'll carry it, but I feel as though I'm getting less value for this knife versus other Kershaws I've purchased in the past.
Pros: • Very thin, I barely even notice it in my pocket. • Somewhat deep carry pocket clip, could be deeper. • Good blade length. • Cool looking gray color finish on handle. • Easy to use pocket clip. • Small choil. Cons: • Not very fast at assisted opening. • Sharp tip, but looks like it could break easy. • Finish already starting to wear after one day being carried. • Handle is longer than it needs to be. • Not very ergonomic. • No gimping on the frame lock, hard to get purchase on. I got this knife a few days ago, and was expecting it to be about the same as my Cryo II. I have had the Cryo for years now and still use it as an EDC. The black wash finish that it has, is still going great. The only part that looks warn is the pocket clip. The spring assisted action is still as fast as the day I got it, the blade flies out! For how much I spent on the Cryo, (about $40) it is a great knife! I wanted to get another Kershaw that was similarly priced. The Grid looks like a good knife, but after carrying it for a day, there is already signs of wear on the finish of the handles and on the black parts of the knife. The aluminum handle scales have a great gray color to them, and are extremely thin, which I really like. I like the blade shape, and how it has a nice sharp point to it. But I fear that the tip could break with light use. Since this knife has Kershaws ‘speedsafe’ assisted opening, I assumed that it would be similar to my Cryo is how fast the blade opens. But I was disappointed when I first opened the knife, as the spring assist action is rather slow. I’m not sure why the Grid is slower than my Cryo, considering the blades seem to have about the same amount of material to them. All in all I would say it is a decent knife, but don’t be surprised when it gets warn pretty quick.
