I have a LOT of knives and this knife equals or out-shines most of the High Dollar Blades I Own. Very nice design, Smooth and Interesting Action & Decent Steel. All for $20!!
Pretty sweet!

For the price this knife is amazing. It looks great, the action is very smooth and addicting, and the the blade was able to shave my arm just fine. The only remotely negative thing is the spring on the hawk lock mechanism sometimes isn't that smooth going down, and it rattles. Besides that, as someone who has a lot of cheap knives, this is definitely my best one yet.

Kershaw, once again, manages to surprise me with their innovation and affordability. The Induction is taking what I like in knives and dialing it up to eleven. 1. Opening: Induction has an incredibly smooth action, with fairly weak retention, making for an absolutely effortless open. 2. Closing: The Hawk Lock is a budget AXIS lock. For a tenth of the price, you can get something that works 91 percent as well. Smooth, easy to work, and very efficient. 3. The clip. Quality, tip-up pocket clip. I will continue to point it out when they do the clip right because sometimes it seems to be tricky. These three factors make for a wonderful fresh knife that I can remove from my pocket, open and close four times, in under 4 seconds. There are not many knives that I can say that about.
Two items that are not the best about this blade: it is very thick/not comfortable in the pocket, and the spring inside the Hawklock is loose and rattles around annoyingly. But other than that, the Kershaw Induction is a must-have at a price you can't beat. 91/100

It is fun to play with, and the action it smooth. Only real problem I have with it, is that it is difficult to take a part, and also the scales have sharp points on them where the machining was not 100% completed.

Overall it's not a bad knife. Sharp and good feel to it. What I don't like about it is the flipping action. It is not very well designed and requires a very hard flip of the wrist to fully extend the blade. It's not what I expected from a Kershaw knife.
Great fidget knife

I purchased this knife because of the price to check it out. It is not worth the 25.00 sale price.
The Hawk lock is not that good. I have large hands and the flipper tab hits my finger when I try to close it. Main reason is the Hawk lock is only on one side of the knife.
I like the design but it is just a cheap knife.
Great Cheap Knife

I have two Kershaw Rams one brand new one a little used. Both have custom clips from Hawk knifes. I have always like the Hawk lock & decided to buy one. I gave it a tune-up, slight pivot adjustment & lube. Now I can open & close with one hand! Just ordered another one. This knife can lockup if you slam it open too many times without oil. I think it causes the pivot screw to tighten up.
New knife

I do like the look of the knife and like the Hawk lock. The problem is the finger indent is too close to the blade and not deep enough for large fingers. There is also no jimping on the top of the blade. A hard thrust and your hand would slip up on the sharp blade. Fun knife to play with but doubt I will ever use it for work.
So far so good.

Got this for a screaming deal and so far it seems like it's going to be a great little work knife. Very streamlined and opens great. Has a weird little rattling noise in the mechanism but oh well. Came in original Kershaw box and was shipping very quickly for shipping cost being so cheap.
Great Knife!

I've got dozens of knives and this one is currently my favorite. I play with it at my desk at work, and then in my car to and from work.

Lightweight, snappy action, and it is truly smooth as butter.

In fact, I like this knife more and more.

Would recommend.
Awesome beefy knife for the price!

Things I love:
- super smooth action out of the box.
- feels hefty in hand but light in pocket.
- this is my first Hawk Lock and it's everything I hoped it would be.
- the "snick" of closing sounds a lot like the Benchmade 940 (must be the aluminum!).
- blade stock is nice and thick.
- blade shape & size is a lot like the Bugout.
- on mine centering is perfect and there is no play at all.

Things I don't love so much:
- in a firm grip, your index finger is very close to the cutting edge
- the clip is pretty chintzy and not super comfortable in hand.
- the chamfers are a little on the sharp side, and I'd be worried about hot spots only for EXTENDED use.

I am blown away at how great this knife is for the price (I got it $25 on sale)! It's a decent deal at the $70 MSRP, but an amazing knife for $25! The fidget factor is great, but it's a very usable knife too.

I *wish* ZT would refine this design and release a model with higher end blade steel and a titanium frame: I would absolutely buy one!
Hawk lock is great
