Excellent and solid knife!
Neil W.
Very pleased with this knife. Fit and finish is outstanding, grind lines are even and well executed, N690 steel is superb, blade deploys fast, and lockup is rock solid. All in all, this is a great knife.
Great EDC get one now!

I purchased 2 of the red ones for Christmas presents and I wish I would have kept one. Perfect size, very nice assist. It snaps its sharp and it's fun. Great knife for the money. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Kershaw wins

Beautiful assisted opener. Feels great in the hand and with very sharp blade. Lockup is solid. The grippy texture on the handles is just enough so the blade doesn't slip out of your hands.
One of Kershaw's best

This is a great size and weight for carry. When I discovered the Camber I thought I'd found the perfect carry knife but over time it turned out to be just another awesome option. The Hype is nearly identical but just a little lighter (0.1 oz) and in N690 steel. Nice that it has DLC blade options and more colors too.

This knife works and feels like an auto. This knife is built very solid, great looking, and a very carryable weight. It's very similar to the kershaw camber only a bit more menacing.. totally recommend the purchase at this price point
Best Damn Deal Ever

Seriously, I have knives from $500 to $20, and this knife is close to the top of my list for EDC. First, Excellent fit and finish, solid lock, great handle, light weight, GREAT BLADE STEEL. At $60 or so dollars, I would love to see someone find something better for the price. I have had other Kershaws that did't live up to my expectations, and this was not one of them. Great size and handle (I have very large hands) is perfect. Buy one, and find out for yourself.
