The Kapsule is an exciting offering from Kershaw with an interesting design from Jens Anso. It is a manual button-slide-operated OTF (Out The Front) knife. The button-slide itself is blue-anodized aluminum, adding an esthetic pop.
This is a fun little blade that, I think, will prove to be a decent little knife to have as backup. It is a short little blade that came out of the box razor sharp. There is an audible click with the button, and a couple of drops of lubricant make it a smooth deployment. Obviously, based on its price point, it is not going to be a top end knife like so many others in my collection, but for what it is, I think it is a solid little offering and I have no regrets purchasing it.
This is a really fun to use small knife. I have no real complaints besides there is a small break in period out of the box. After 10-15 openings it was smooth as butter. The factory edge is nothing to write home about but is useable and 8cr is easy to sharpen. Overall this is a really fun knife and I definitely recommend it if you’re thinking about getting it.
I like the design of this knife. Thin profile and unique slide mechanism, and as a second small knife works well and decently sharp out of the box . However I had to return 2 of these bc if u wear it in ur pocket w clip and walk around a bit , the button loosens and will fall off leaving the knife unusable. Was not sure if I could take apart n fix so retuned knife . Tried again w same result, which is sad because I liked it :(
Vastly over-priced, badly engineered attempt to combine a utility knife with an EDC-able pocket carry. Entirely reliant on a button-spring mechanism that barely works out of the box and appears unlikely to survive any significant use. Unremarkable 8CR blade had a mediocre factory edge. Cheap, Chinese-factory feel overall. Can't think of a reason to give it even a second star. Very sorry I bought it.
