KS1447: Kershaw One Ton Folding Framelock 3-1/2" Plain Blade, G-10 Handles
Like the Kershaw Half-Ton, but need a bigger knife? Wish granted. It’s the One-Ton. The Kershaw One-Ton has a wide, fat blade (even thicker than the Half-Ton) ready to take on any and all heavy-duty tasks. The handle is machined G-10, with a steel framelock back. This big knife is not as heavy as you’d expect. Carry it tip-up or tip-down, but definitely carry it.

Thin but Beefy
This knife is really thin, but it doesn't feel like it. Out of the box it was razor sharp. It flicks open with ease. It rides very flat in the pocket. I can finally carry a good size knife in dress clothing.

A Good Knife
Okay, there are a lot of negative comments about this knife. First off, it IS a good knife for $20, or perhaps more. Mass produced, imported knives don't all come out the same. Mine is nearly perfect, but yours may not be...that's an industry standard. The one-sided G-10 scale is grippy, but not pants-shredding. The frame lock is well-fitted and tight. No complaints on the lock-up here. Mine came razor sharp, but was easily made hair-popping sharp. Understand this is 8Cr13Mov steel. It takes a good edge, but will require routine maintenance, which is luckily easy. Yes, cardboard will dull the blade, as well as all other steels in this range. It's not ZDP-189, so don't expect it to perform as such. Mine came with a nice even grind, and after a little oiling and break-in will flip out nicely with a flick of the wrist while nudging the thumb stud. The choil and jimping are comfortable and useful, and contribute to the knife's comfortable grip. Mine also came with a perfectly centered blade. It carries well with a thin profile, allowing tip up or down, right hand only (sorry lefties). As expected, the washers are nylon, but perform well with adequate lubrication. There is a lanyard hole available in the tip up position, but it could stand to be a bit bigger. That's really the only complaint I have about this knife; although a deep-carry pocket clip would also be nice. Overall, I believe $20 for this knife is a great deal. It's a user and a good one. Keep it sharpened and lubed, and you won't be disappointed.
