I will say every Kershaw I have received has a card with it guaranteeing that I can send the knife in for life if I want the blade sharpened at no charge.
I got this in it's last drop and I rather enjoy it, especially at it's price. I haven't yet put it through it's paces so I can't speak much for edge retention. Lock is good, especially considering I previously hated liner locks, albeit slightly stiff but I will take that trade off for a nice lockup gladly. The shape of the tang with the crossguard shape does enable it to be opened like an Emerson wave which I thoroughly enjoy.
"Easy to sharpen 8Cr13MoV stainless steel" - LOL! I bought two Kershaws with this blade steel and sent them back to Amazon within two days. I couldn't cut apart a cardboard box without the edge dulling. This steel is crap. The edge of a piece of copy paper holds a better edge than this recycled soda can "steel".

Not sure what kind paper you had that dulled a blade fast but Kershaw does a good job with that steel maybe you want to spend $150 on a super steel then another $65 so you can sharpen it I would rather use a ceramic stick for$10 on my $25 knife an make fun of the steel nerds

So the blade is spear tipped, meaning it has edges on both sides?

On the Hinderer version, the Maximus, the blade has an edge on both sides. On this Kershaw version, the Decimus, it only has one edge.

No.
I just got mine from another retailer. The detente it's way too strong. I hope it breaks in. If not, I'll take it apart, clean and lube it. Otherwise, I am very pleased with this. I would like to push all the fence sitters off onto the purchase side.

If it doesnt maybe just send it in. Kershaw makes amazing blades for the price but the price comes with the occasionally varying QC (I would say that have a wider acceptable margin than most brand, but damn the price is right for what it is) and the 8cr

Thank you for your response. I took another look at my post. The word trade should have been "take". My feelings are the same as yours regarding Kershaw. I have over 15 of them.
