This is a small knife that handles like a big knife.

When it comes to looks, it’s simple.  What I would call minimalistic.  There is no nonsense, nothing superficial.

The thick hollow grind preserves tip strength and rigidity

I love the recessed jumping along the body of the knife.  It’s function and looks awesome.

Locks solid.  Disengages well.

Good pocket clip.

made for the traditional saber grip

When it comes to the flipper, I’m a fan of it.  Quick, easy but not too easy. There is a bit of weight behind it which feels like quality.  Once pressed, it springs open.  That may make it somewhat dangerous to those who are less knowledgable about blades.

Quick but not fast.

This is my current GO TO EDC knife and clearly it has been used.

For what you are getting this blade is insanely affordable.

The 8CR13MoV steel holds a great edge.  Easy to sharpen as well.

  1. Oh I want one of those. Have a different model I have had for years but the blade is getting thin from sharpening it so much. Kershaw makes great knives.
