Customer Reviews

Great knife
Ethan K. on Dec 30, 2022

This was the first knife I bought myself back in 2013ish and I carried it all the time. Came sharp out of the box, blade stayed centered and the assisted opening was smooth. Unfortunately I lost that one but I liked it so much I bought another one. Definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a cheap edc knife.

Great budget tactical edc
Jason G. on Mar 16, 2019

This is another solid knife from Kershaw.... The ao action pops pretty hard so you will enjoy opening it... I like that it isn't a fine blade either bc this is my go to as a work secondary. The texture on the handle looks great and grabs attention from other clip gazers and knife nuts. The back spacer is so nice too....overall it just fits super well in the hand

Great budget edc knife

Not much to say that hasn't been said, loved mine wish I hadn't lost it.

Good knife for beginners
Lucy V. on Jan 19, 2018

This was the first knife I’ve ever owned and I’d say that it’s a pretty good knife to start with. Since it’s spring assisted, it is easy to use and a bit safer in my opinion. This was a gift from someone else and there wasn’t any bladeplay whatsoever. It also is very pleasing to the eyes.

Decent budget workhorse
Michael D. on Jan 8, 2018

This is a good knife for the price. The handle fits nicely in your hand and the texture on the scales provides enough traction for cutting without shredding your pockets. The blade is a nice, useful shape and is made of decent steel. The assisted opening is reliable without being overpowered like some models. The only downsides are the blade coating shows wear awfully fast, and the handles have a cheap hollow feel to them. Those definitely aren't deal breakers though, especially at this price point. The build quality is good, with good lock up and no blade play.
