Good knife
Craig A.
I got this for the 390 blade. The only draw back is the blade is too fat to be a great slicer. The action is like watching a slow motion movie and I must say it is impressive. Ergo's are ok. It is a little heavier than what I collect. I like the knife but it does go pretty far down in terms of pocket time on my list. I will carry it from time to time, but not every day.
Great knife

Got this knife and carried it every day since. The only thing I wish it had was some jimping for grip on the back of the blade.
Hair shaving sharp

Got the Link in M390 today and I have to say I'm impressed. I wanted a knife that I was willing to use but I didn't want some sub par steel. When I saw the steel this comes in I did my research and decided to take the leap of faith. I'm happy I did because this is a very nice folder. I'm not sure if Kershaw can keep making this knife at this price point but I'd love to see them keep it in some form whether it's bumped up to ZT or kept in Kershaw's line.

-Very sharp which is good cause I'm a novice at sharpening.
-Fit and finish is on point.
-Ergonomics feel good for the role that it seems aimed at.

-Blade centering is slightly off.
-It's assisted which I'm not really a fan of but it fly's out because of this.
-Pocket clip is not deep carry.
-Would have been cool to see different colors.

Verdict: I'd prefer you leave at least one in case I need to buy another.

I cannot really add much to all the other reviews as they are spot on. In like it enough to have 2. Only wish they would have done some weight reducing milling but easily overlooked by all the positives of this great design and build. And I love my BM and Spydies.
Great EDC knife
Michael G.
This has become one of my most carried knives. It came sharp and I haven't touched it yet. The M390 holds a great edge. The blade shape is a great slicer. Handle is comfortable in hand. I have been very happy with this knife.
Top “Link” of the food chain

The link has always been a good knife, I own several versions. Only downside is they come with rather cheap steel. They’ve made the perfect Kershaw with this knife! M390 steel is something you usually only find on $200+ knives. I picked up this knife a year ago (along with the dividend M390) and they were gone in a week or so. Looks like they came back with the bargain of the century. If you’re on the fence about this knife, pull the trigger because M390 doesn’t often come around at this price. Especially on such a nice knife, and trust me they will be gone again very soon.
insane bang for your buck

excellent materials, excellent blade steel, nice weight and feel. It came razor sharp out of the box. enlarged lanyard hole is great and can accept double stranded paracord for removable lanyard (loop it through and cinch it on rather than being tied onto the knife) The flipper has jimping and a nice angle that doesnt chew your thump or finger up, and if you call kershaw they will send you a deep carry clip which causes this guy to ride very nice in the pocket and totally out of view. On top of all of this it has excellent aesthetics, it just flows and it lends to it being a great slicer. The only issue i have had is the blade centering being very slightly off. I have recentered it and it keeps wandering over a tiny bit after 20 or so flips.
Awesome knife made better.
Jared E.
I always liked the look of the Link. The only thing the might have put me off was the steel in the USA made version. But with an upgrade to M390 and the price still under $100 is insane. This should be a staple in the Kershaw lineup.
Great knife
Gerald N.
Too bad this was a limited run. I really enjoy this knife. One of my favorites with a great steel. Great deployment and solid lock up. Comfortable to use and carry. The only thing I didn't like was the clip, one call to Kershaw KAI and 6 days later i had a deep clip for free. If they brought this one back I'd get another so I had one for work and one for going out.
