Great Every Day Pocket Knfe
I'm a commercial photographer and I use this little beauty every day. I cut eight foot wide seamless paper with no effort. I open boxes, cut rope, twine and tape on a daily basis. I also use this knife to slice cheese, apples and other fruits for snacking. It's the perfect size to carry at all times. I may take the clip off but I'm holding off for now. The blade opens in a flash and the sharpness out of the box is amazing. I never leave the house without this stellar piece of American workmanship in my pocket.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Weight, None
I keep this knife in my purse when i'm out. While home I use it on light tasks around the house such as opening boxes, packaging, crafts that i work on as well. My only complaint is the tip. While i appreciate how precise you can get with a the thin tip, it was damaged early on and now there is a slight bend. This doesn't effect my use with the knife but I believe this shows the integrity of the blade to be of lesser quality. I do enjoy the assisted opening however as i have a difficult time opening my knives one handed without.

Great Gentlemans Knife
I usually only carry this knife when I'm not working.It's a good looking knife black and chrome. A great looking combination to me.The fit and finish are very,very good and second to no one's.Kershaws American made knives rivals the very best factory knives anywhere. Kershaw is my second favorite brand of knives.I've never had an issue with one of them.The flipper's Speedsafe opener works very well.The lockup is very good with no play at all in the blade.This knife is made with 420 HC steel.One of my favorite to carry and use everyday.It's a very tough stain,chip and easy to sharpen steel. I can easily sharpen this steel to scary sharp as some would put it.The hairs on the back of my arm seem to just jump out of it's way.Making it just as sharp as any type of steel one could think of.I know I've sharpened and own most of them.It may not hold it's edge as long as the so called super steels do. But they have their own issues and it's a tradeoff that I'm will to except.It's ease of maintenance and overall toughness stain resistance make it worth it to me.This is a very good knife for the money.You'd be hard pressed to find one better at this price.Another huge plus it's American made knife.A fact that makes it one I'd easily recommend to anyone as worth owning.I have not seen an offshore knife that truly equals or much less exceeds the knives made in the US factories.
