Description

Description

This Blade HQ Exclusive Kershaw Skyline XL has a BlackWashed blade and a black G-10 handle.

Iconic style and no-nonsense simplicity have kept the Kershaw Skyline in knife enthusiast pockets for years. It's hard to improve a classic design, so we didn't, we just made it bigger. The Skyline XL is a brilliant new exclusive knife from Kershaw that retains the style, usability, and performance of the venerable Skyline. While the XL is larger, it doesn't overwhelm.

Features:
  • Flipper and dual thumb studs allow easy one-handed opening.
  • Textured G-10 scales and a deep choil provide a secure grip.
  • Built with a slim handle design and 3-way reversible pocket clip for EDC convenience.

Great knife but no real bargain over the original.

This is a great knife for skyline fans who always dreamed of a bigger version or someone looking
for a solid but cheaper large knife
that looks amazing.

Pros:
Near perfect ergonomics. This thing fits your hand like a dream and the G-10 gives you just enough grip.

Beautiful design. This knife just looks good and the blackwash finish is stunning. Like an antique gun.

The thumbstud is actually useful! Unlike the one on the original skyline.

Cons:
Not the same steel as the original skyline. The original Sandvik 14C28N is a great steel worth the upcharge. The 8Cr13MoV is cheaper chinese steel that Kershaw uses for it's value knives. That's why this larger version is cheaper than the original.

No jimping. Same as the original. Your thumb doesn't have a place to sit when you're really working with it (shouldn't anyway with this steel). A minor gripe though.

The pocket clip is short. Looks like it was thrown on from a discontinued smaller knife. Very out of place.
