Great size, easy to use and very nicely made! Highly recommended.👍

Very happy with this knife. Good size, fast action, impressively sharp. Excellent value for money. I throw it in my bag and goes everywhere with me. Easy to clean as well.

jury is still out on this one....gave it 4 because there is nothing wrong(fast sharp clips well, nice fit/finish) with it but chipped first week. 4th kershaw but seems to stay sharper longer than other 3. What do y'all know about this steel?? a little awkward to close for me...too small for medium large hands?? Constantly used for slicing ,whittling, chopping, and prying (my granddad just rolled over in his grave at that) but just haven't quite gotten used to it. smallest knife i've owned since i was a kid.

Small and lightweight introduction to an assisted opening knife.

First off, this knife has the most satisfying action of any folder I've ever owned. "Zing" is an appropriate name -- it flies out like a switchblade from a light touch on the flicker or a strong push on the thumb knob. I've had other Kershaw flipper-style knives (previous favorite being the Chill), and none of them felt as fast or as satisfying as this one. Second, it's gorgeous. The uniform look of matte steel gives it class and style, and the sculptured curves of the pocket clip look fantastic. So from the perspective of aesthetics and feel, it's a 10/10. My qualms with it, and what keeps it from being a 5-star knife in my book, are not with the execution but with the design. It's bigger than I expected, and it's pretty heavy for what it is. Not huge, not "whoah" big, but the all-steel design adds a lot of weight and it's definitely larger than I like my EDC knives. It's too much knife to just cut tape or open a package, but not enough knife and the wrong ergonomics for self-defense or big projects. It's too heavy for outdoors pursuits, and the handle doesn't have enough grip for sweaty or wet activity. So I'm likely going to play with it at home, and show it off as a novelty ("flick it, it's so crisp!"), but it's unlikely to make it into my EDC rotation and it's not going to find a place in a hobby-oriented kit. It's incredibly well-executed, but it's not quite right for me. No regrets for the price.

I like the knife okay, blade is nice and sharp and easy to keep sharp. The clip on the handle is not very strong and keeps bending and falling out of my pocket. I have lost this knife about 10 times already. I have been able to find it, but sooner or later I won't be able to. I have lost it outside, in the house, and in my vehicle. Keeps coming out of my pocket because the clip doesn't hold it in place.

sharp right out of the box. Flipper is a great feature and I have had really good luck with Kershaw products.

Excellent quality...razor sharp....assisted opening works flawlessly. I LIKE this knife!

The knife is larger than I expected. I own a smaller version which is almost identical and love it. This , like most from Kershaw is of high quality.

It works well and can be adjusted to operate/open quickly and with authority. At this price, I bought two and use one daily. The other is tucked away as a replacement, or possibly a gift. Out of the box, one was set up perfectly, the other, not so much, but I was able to tweak it to make it work well. It's a good value, opens very quickly, locks up tight and is made of a durable steel. The blade length keeps it from being a problem in certain jurisdictions, barely. It's a handy, well made knife at a good price.

Excellent piece of cutlery! I like the style and the build quality. Solid. Kershaw. I particularly prefer the frame lock mecanism - easier to unlock but very positive and safe it its locking feature. This blad is smal, but the geometry is very strong and beefy at the blade back. Like it very much.
Verified Purchaser
The bead blasted finish really makes this knife great. I haven't used it too much, but it feels awesome to hold.
Verified Purchaser
I like this knife. It's a little small but still seems like a good fit in my hand. Has just the right weight for its size. Flipper action is great so far. Very sharp right out of the box and blade is centered correctly.
Verified Purchaser
Good overall knife, although I prefer my Kershaw Ken Onion design Speedsafe over this one. A couple people have mentioned it was difficult to open, this was the case for me as well, was not expecting to have issues, not sure if a QA issue or what. It's a solid knife for the money.
Verified Purchaser
Nice solid knife. Well constructed. I use for my everyday pocket knife and it meets my needs perfectly. Match with a good price point and voila a daily folder that is usefu, light and durable
Verified Purchaser
It arrived very difficult to open. I suspect it will eventually be ok, but it will require work on my part to make it that way.
Verified Purchaser
The perfect blend between a Leek and the Cryo. Super-thin, while still comfortable in my hands. Fits in the change pocket of my jeans perfectly. Very happy with it.
Verified Purchaser
Pretty good for the price. IMO it's the perfect size for an EDC pocket knife. It's my first spring assisted opening knife and I don't think I'll ever buy another folder that's not spring assisted. The blade steel is easy to sharpen but doesn't hold an edge for very long when in use but that's to be expected for a knife in this price range.
Verified Purchaser
Kershaw makes great knives and this a great all around pocket or tool box knife. Also thanks to Massdrop a really good price.
Verified Purchaser
Well constructed. Great knife for the price.

Great knife, came plenty sharp and “zings” right open! Nice compact design that is nearly invisible in your pocket. Love it

Simple and elegant EDC knife.
Verified Purchaser
Excellent EDC carry at an excellent price!
Verified Purchaser
This is an excellent little pocket knife.
Verified Purchaser
This is a decent knife for everyday, as it is cheap enough that if it were to get lost I would not miss it too much. It is really very flat which makes it okay clipped to my pocket but slightly uncomfortable to use. The steel is good and it takes and holds an edge well, so it is practical for EDC.
Verified Purchaser
Excellent knife. Gets somewhat stained with tropical fruits and spices.
Verified Purchaser
Classy, discreet, and sharp! Great EDC on a budget!
Verified Purchaser
Good knife not disappointed at all

The tension spring broke after a couple of weeks, I sent an email to Kershaw, and the mailed me two replacement upgrade springs for free.
This knife is a great compact folder, if there was a model basically the exact same but 25% bigger in every way, I would buy like four of them.
