When it was on sale I threw it onto a big order without thinking about it. When I got it I kind of wished I hadn't wasted the money, but I rotated it in anyway. I've got to say I feel like I stole it at the sub $20 price I paid, and still probably a good deal sub $40. Smooth action, feels good in hand. Had to tighten up the clip after a couple carries but not since then so no biggie. On rotation for my dirty work where I don't want to tear up my more expensive ones.
Fantastic Knife on sale

Sub 20 dollars on sale. Speedsafe action is flawless. Back spacer feature is cool. Great knife for the price!

Solid build - this thing has some weight to it, so not something I'll carry regularly, but for me it is an ideal "garage knife". What I mean by that is it's something I keep around for opening packages, scoring plywood before cuts on my table saw, and really putting through some abuse.
Solid price - at the sale price at the time I'm writing this (Jan 2020), what a bargain. As I've come to expect from Kershaw, the action is stout, reliable and it's all around a good knife. Great? Okay no. Perfect? Don't expect that. Will it get some jobs done? Heck yes. It's been easy to re-edge, will take a beating - booth regarding the blade and the scales from being used as a utility knife. This is one that you probably aren't going to show off in your collection case, but could confidently loan out, keep in the glove box, or on your workbench like I do. It's a solid four star knife.

For the sale price it's a great knife to have. It is a tad small for me but I purchased this as my son's first folding knife. So far he is loving it.

Purchased 2 at the sale price for my son and I. Needed to stay below 3" to stay legal. This knife met my needs. I find the interchangeable backspacers to be a little cumbersome. Will probably just use the screwdriver bit. Was sharp right out of the box.
Really nice budget knife

I've been admiring this knife for some time, but it never really ticked all the boxes for me. I love the style and the fact that it is a Hinderer design. I'm not a huge fan of assisted knives, but this one is not an overly active assist.
Very smooth action.

Shortcomings:
I would prefer that it was slightly larger in-hand.
I would like a better steal (D2?)
I don't like the amount of space that is cut out for the frame lock (A very wide cut).
The thumb studs are not very useful - not an appropriate angle to use as a thumb stud.
The sharpening choil does not relief deep enough to avoid a misshapen edge (I will probably cut that out a bit before sharpening).
All that being said, I could not resist at the sale price.
Pay attention when personalizing....

Great knife. I had it personalized and figured out after I received it that the location of "Back of blade" is the default location. Dang.

The knife was of good quality. The one disappointment was trying to change the backspacers from a lanyard to a screwdriver tip. I could not break the two torx screws holding in the backspacer. One side came off great, but the other was on too tight to break away from the feed thru on the backspacer. After disassembling the entire knife, I could not get a pair of piers to hold the feed through from turning. Great idea, but not very doable.
Great little knife

This is a solid work knife, which came sharp out of the box with good deployment. I like the heft of the knife, and find that I grab this one more often than not.

As others noted, it is a little hefty for an EDC knife. However, that has not stopped me from carrying it every day.

Finally, while the replacent spacers are cool, I didnt like how they changed the ergonomics of the handle. I put the original, plastic spacer back in.
Fun knife

Picked this up because it was on sale. Came really sharp out of the box and it opens nice and smooth. But after a week or so, the blade loosened. Luckily it could be tightened easily, just inconvenient since I hadn't really used the knife for anything.

Other than that, it's a little heavy for my EDC. I like that I can swap out the lanyard spot for another tool if I choose.
