Summary

Durable, small, lightweight, and sharp.

Pros

  • All stainless steel construction
  • Quick easy one hand opening
  • Solid construction
  • Matt finish looks cool
  • Very good customer service

Cons

  • Small size makes it easy to lose. Clip it to your pocket if you want to hold on to it.

I've had this knife for almost ten years. I carry it almost every day. It's a very useful tool and is easy to keep sharp. The open design makes cleaning the knife a snap. The small size and light weight makes taking it with you all the time easy.

After eight years the safety catch on the bottom of the knife broke. I contacted Kershaw online, requested the replacement part, and it arrived in a couple weeks. No charge. It has a  lifetime warranty. Small blade size make it legal to carry almost everywhere .
