The Skyline is one of Kershaw's most popular knives and for good reasons: it is slim, pocket-sized and elegant. This Skyline features a stonewash finished steel blade. The knife opens easily with the flipper, using just the index finger of either hand and a flick of the wrist, or use the dual thumb studs. The steel liner lock secures the blade in place. The textured black G-10 scales offer a secure grip in the hand with a deep index finger groove. Includes a tip-down/up pocket clip. This is a top choice for an everyday carrying knife with its slim handle and great design.

Great EDC
Everett W.
Great EDC. Slim in the pocket and sharp out of the box.
Not worth it
Daniel E.
I've only recently started getting into nicer pocket knives, but this is the biggest let down yet. It didn't take long to start hearing hype about the Kershaw skyline, and as a Kershaw lover I had to try it. This is no way worth $50. It's on par with other 20 to 30 dollar knives. For 50, you can do WAY better.
Best EDC for the money
Anthony B.
I was on the fence about buying this knife but Iím glad I did. Itís the perfect size, weight and shape for what I like to use at work. For a manual knife with no assisted opening or ball bearings this is a very easy and smooth knife to open. I love the big American flag on the blade and I especially like the G-10 they use for this knife. It is so soft and grippy, itís better than the G-10 on most ZTs. That being said I also own a skyline XL and itís not nearly as good as the original. In fact I just ordered another skyline (in blackwash) so my skyline XL can just sit on the shelf and collect dust.
Not sky-high but pretty close

For 49.95 you are getting a decent steel, a great flipper, all in a lightweight construction. That's excellent.

It is not the strongest knife out there, but its going to take forever to look for it. So, settle for a community beloved, reliable knife instead.

Buy this knife!

Minimal & Sleek
Joseph S.
I love this knife. I've been looking at this knife for some time and I'm glad I made the purchase. The flipper is easy to use and I can deploy very quickly. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great EDC knife.
best $50 you can spend on a knife.
christopher m.
this would be a good deal at $70.
i like the steel better than s30v.
the flipper works great.
the weight is perfect.
Simple and Sleek
Tae S.
Simple design, little hardware for malfunctions. It is a manual opening blade, the one I had received was/is still sticky upon trying to deploy the blade.

Maybe Iím to spoiled with benchmade and spydercoís smooth deployment systems.

The Skyline, does disapear inside of the pocket due to its slender frame and simple design of the knife itself.

Everyone should own a skyline. Itís a good beater EDC.

A nice, simple manual flipper
Michael D.
An no frills budget flipper. It's light and thin. The blade stock is also thin, and the single liner means this is a lighter duty knife, but it is a great slicer. Mine can be opened without a wrist flick, but I really have to pay attention to my technique. The pivot is a little tighter than I'd like, but it's required for decent centering. Overall, a decent option, but the action on mine just doesn't impress.
Great knife not so great pocket clip
Joshua P.
Great knife. It was everything I expected it to be. Only gripe is that after hanging the position of the pocket clip to tip up right carry the pocket clip wiggles around and doesnít seem to stay tight.
Great knife
David B.
This knife is unbelievably light. I was surprised at how sharp it was too. This was my exclusive EDC knife for quite a while. Now I carry it as a backup knife, I just couldn't put it away in a box. I love the stonewashed blade and the G-10 handles. Seriously considering buying the Skyline XL.
I love this little flipper. It's a fun knife. I got the blade hq jade green g10 which is beautiful. Fit and finish and lock up are all great. Stonewash is beautiful. Only thing I can complain about is pocket clip is kinda tight and not very deep and the blade came sharp but not really popping hairs. Still great fun knife.
Perfect 1st knife
Mix R.
This was my first pocket knife that wasn't a knockoff or a nameless swap meet knife, and the one that started my current, ummm, love affair with blades.

The G10 handles feels really good in the hand, and the finger choil helps keep it there. Out of box, you need a flick of the wrist when opening with the flipper, but once it's broken in (took me about a week), the action becomes significantly smoother. Blade wasn't razor sharp out of box but nothing a bit of stropping couldn't fix. Been carrying it for a couple of months now, using it for light cutting tasks and so far, fit and finish are still superb.

All in all, super happy with this knife. Would've given it 5 stars but knowing that this is just the start of my #knifelife I'm holding back on that.

Perfect knife for the price. Good G10 handles and lightweight. The damascus version is also great.
Love it! Especially with black clip
Jason G.
It wasn't until I got one that I finally understand why this knife had so many great youtube reviews. Lightweight, compact, smooth action, ergonomic, sharp and not too expensive. One thing to note though, on mine, THE CLIP IS BLACK.

Two minor complaints:

1) The black clip (I love the color) at first left some black residue wherever it was clipped. It doesn't do it anymore, but I have one pair of pants with a dark spot on one pocket lip, so try clipping it on some paper or cardboard or something first.

2) The index finger groove, while very ergonomic for holding the knife, does get in the way of operating the liner lock for me. I have long nails and cannot hit the liner with my thumb because my nail gets in the way. Not a big deal though since I learned to reach around from the other side with my index finger to close it, but just be warned if you have long-ish nails.

Again, these are minor complaints (still 5 stars).

I have heard many complaining about the clip positioning leaving too much of the knife out when carrying tip-up. I have not had any problems and actually like the clip position. The clip is tight and with a G-10 handle to clip on, the knife will not slide out of your pocket, and the inch or so sticking out of your pocket makes it easy to pull out and open.

Overall, I really love this knife. If you're on the fence about this knife, get it! There really isn't much (if anything) else in this price range (low to mid $40s) that I would get over the Skyline for EDC.
