Kershaw?

This is a discussion on Kershaw? within the Defensive Knives & Other Weapons forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I'm not a fan of tip down carry, but Kershaw makes very good quality knives. I have a Scallion and love the assisted opening action....

    I EDC two Kershaws - a Blur 1670 BLKST and a Storm 1470X. Both are super sharp and very tough. I like the Blur a little more since it is assisted-opening. It's hard to go wrong with a Kershaw, IMO.

    I had the cheaper one. Kershaw usually has several price points of materials for the same design of knife.

    The cheaper ones usually just have steel handles and 440A or B blades, while the higher-end ones have laminated D2 or S30V blades. The higher-end ones are well worth it- the quality increase is huge and the price increase is fairly modest.

    The Junkyard Dog is a Tim Galyean design- if you think the Kershaws are cool, look up one of his customs!

    Hakkaa päälle!

    Not a problem. Kershaw makes good several knives. It is hard to keep track of all of them.

    I have a Kershaw that Ive had since highschool. Its more of a 'beater' knife now, but it holds a great edge. Sharp enough to shave. Another good blade at a good price is Schrade.

    I only buy Kershaw these days..... I have had Buck, Shrade, Gerber etc.... over the years but I really like my Kershaw's the best. In particular the Ken Onion series knives like the Leek and Chive etc.....

    I just like the feel and one hand open/close of the Kershaw above anything else. I'm sure there are better more expensive knives out there but for me, you cannot go wrong with one.
