Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
I received the Clash as a replacement for another Kershaw that is no longer in stock ANYWHERE. First off let me say that KnifeCenter's customer service was AMAZING in every way! Now, on to the Clash. It's a Ken Onion design and as far as I'm concerned, Ken can do no wrong. The handle on this knife was shorter than I expected but fits in my hand very well. I have average sized guys hands and it just tucks in my palm perfectly. The leaf shaped blade came very sharp out of the box, as per usual with Kershaw. The Speedsafe opens quick with an authoritative click and the liner locks up nice and tight without being a pain in the butt (or thumb) to open. Clash is a great knife if you don't want to carry a full size blade like the Speedbump but still want to go a bit bigger than maybe The Volt or O-So-Sweet pocket knives. I've got quite a few Kershaw knives and the Clash is one of my favourites and easily made it's way into my EDC rotation.
