Just out of curiosity, do you get some sort of referral fee whenever someone clicks on that link (you posted) and/or makes a purchase?
What I wouldn't give for a photo of this knife open from the side without the clip, being a lefty it's hard to tell if I'll be able to close it one handed as I have no idea how much clearance the blade release has.
I got this for my wife as a starter knife. fairly robust blade with a nice hand feel. she loves it, the spring opening is satisfying. $25 for a starter knife is perfect. Eventually i might get her something more light weight like my kershaw Leek but simple and thick is the way to go for a first!
I have this knife... Admittedly bought from Amazon months ago. But it is my favorite Kershaw by far. Fits nicely in the pocket without being obtrusive. Nice blade shape. Nice feel. Great EDC. I don't know how much shipping is here but there about $24 on Amazon.
Was excited until I saw where it was made. I will stay with my Benchmades and pay the extra.

🙄You were expecting......what, exactly, from a $20 Kershaw?
🤣

Not really.. Keyshaw has become like Gerber on other brands.. some are blister packed hanging on shelves. Fortunately Massdrop is offering higher end knive.
Damn, 13$ shipping to EU for a 25$ neat knife is too much, would have bought 3... ^^
Great knife, but I bought it for similar price on Amazon Prime in 2015 http://amzn.to/2Hyzms2
Not even free shipping on this drop

You aren't fooling anyone. If you can get enough people to use your link you'll pull in more than an insignificant amount of money, otherwise you wouldn't bother. Everyone here understands that you will have to pay shipping and wait for a while (with amazon, you are still paying for shipping through subscription). That is not the point. The point is that you are on Massdrop's doorstep trying to steal their customers. Not. Cool. We all know we can shop around at places like Amazon to find better deals. This isn't a sales bulletin where salesmen like you can come and try to undercut Massdrop.
I never said I don't shop around, we'd be stupid not to. If I see an item on here I'm interested in, I immediately shop the item to see if it's a good deal or not. If it is, I'm in, if not, I just wait for something else and I don't bash Massdrop.
Kershaw makes good budget knives. The Zing is made from 8cr13mov stainless steel, a good budget steel for the money that sharpens fairly easy, gets razor sharp and hold an edge a reasonable amount of time for it's price. The handle obviously lacks any kind of texture so it might get a little slick. The blade shape and design of this knife make it more of a gentlemen's EDC rather than a substitute for a multitool. Any prying you attempt is likely to snap the narrow tip, as it's designed more for slicing or piercing. As with any knife this one will need maintaining: cleaning after use, periodically sharpening, lubrication, adjusting of the pivot screw when necessary, and keep an eye on screws backing out and maybe applying a bit of threadlock. Idiots who don't maintain their knives and then complain deserve what they get. There is no such thing as a maintenance free knife that stays sharp all by itself.

As for price, this is $1.89 less than Amazon right now, but you have to pay $2.75 shipping, so if you have free prime shipping or are ordering $25+ then the Amazon price is better. This knife was $12.99 about a year ago from one retailer, but they charge pretty high shipping and I don't think that price is coming back.

If you want this knife then this is a good price for it, but not so much that you can't pass it up if you aren't in love with this particular knife.

It's times like this I wish I had a micrometer.

This one has been working out great for me... https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072KGHRML/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
all and all this is a very well crafted knife that is not only a great constructed knife but is definitely a very sleek design. the clip on mine can be switched.As i said my first was from massdrop they were the first to have them my second i bought from my amazon prime for 20.47 and with free shipping and it's the exact same knife and build.the blade itself works great for me and my sons very good metals
Couple of questions:
I assume the clip can be set for right side tip up carry, correct?
How well does the Cr8 steel hold it's edge?
Does it have the same slickness/grip issues seen in the Leek?

UPDATE:
The clip can be swapped to Right Tip-Up, Right Tip-Down, and Left Tip-Up.
The Cr8 steel is not the best (and the heat treating on this isn't great), but it'll work for basic needs.
Decent ergos give it an acceptable grip.
i bought this knife back in july 2017 for 20.47 from massdrop my son loves it.i was waiting and waiting for it again to buy for my other son. well i looked for it endlessly on internet until finally i became available on amazon for for 20.47 and i got it in 2days and it is in fact the exact same knife i purchased on massdrop and it is free shipping for me on amazon prime i do shop weekly on amazon but i also shop massdrop because of things to get that nowhere else has i just thought i should let my fellow massdrop community members know i have been seeing this alot on massdrop and the fact that we buy things in bulk i feel we should save a lot more than .48 cents and that we pay for are own shipping.i still hands down love massdrop for the products they offer that are either not out yet or the availability. like the roccat gaming mouse i just received from massdrop for my 16 yr old son xmas and this is not even released yet to public these products are the perks i like on massdrop bought i find myself now checking every single item massdrop sells now to make sure i am getting a great price. the fact is once again if we are a massdrop community and we buy in bulk i surely think in my opinion that not only should we get free shipping on are products but we should also be saving more than .48 cents on are bulk buys and this is just my opinion everyone have a great 2017 christmas
I own a kershaw leek in the standard stainless steel handle. And I find it very slippery go a point I don't carry it as often as Ide like. Is this zing ss going to be the same issue? Thank
Do you have any pictures of the presentation side of the knife?

I see pics of both sides

So they put pocket clips and integral locks on both sides of the knife?
