    Kershaw Skyline update

    Great so far.

    The good parts:
    Much lighter than the Storm.

    Opens really easy 99% of the time I can open it with just the flipper tab.

    Very ergonomic.... fits the hand well.

    Locks solid no wiggle up or down or side to side.

    The clip is sufficient.. I like the one on the Storm and the Leeks better.

    Shape and width of the blade are very nice
    .
    Very sharp and a great tip out of the box as with all Kershaws.

    Quiet opening.

    The bad:
    The thumb studs are pretty much useless they are to far in the notch to get your thumb on. Although they do help if you don't flip it open on the 1st try.

    I may put the clip on the bad side eventually..... will wear it for a bit longer.

    Hollow ground blade... I am just not a big fan of them that's just me.

    Break in time....I probably flipped it 200 times before it was loose enough to open with out flipping the wrist.

    All in all I am very satisfied a lot of knife for the money would not hesitate to suggest it to someone. Just remember it is a flipper and not an assist opener

    Sounds like you picked out a knife that's a 'cut' above the rest.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    , Great play on words, but I have a Skyline too and have no complaints. It's amazing bang for the buck!!

    Glock27/ KaBar TDI/ MTAC Holster. I have more also, but this combination works well..
