KS1730SS: 1730SS Zing
Kershaw Knives
This iteration of the popular "first generation" Zings designed by RJ Martin.

What's different? First of all, this Zing is all stainless steel, from pointy tip to handle butt. Just smooth, sleek, bead-blasted steel all the way down. The blade is high-quality 8CR13MoV stainless steel, heat treated to Kershaw specifications to bring out the very best in the steel—strength, hardness, and the ability to take and hold a wicked edge. The modified drop-point blade offers superior slicing and utility capabilities.

To give this Zing even more, well, zing, Kershaw has added SpeedSafe assisted opening. Just pull back on the ambidextrous flipper and the blade moves out of the handle, quickly and easily. You can also access the Zing's SpeedSafe feature with a simple push on the thumbstud. Either way, your Zing is ready to go quickly and easily.

As a frame lock knife, the Zing SS is slimmer than previous liner lock Zings and rides even more comfortably in your pocket. The handle is drilled so that you can position the pocketclip for either tip-up or tip-down. And, of course, there's a handy lanyard hole. The Zing SS is a value priced, every day carrying knife with a clean look and lots of style.

Not Made in the USA
Could have misread the description but I was unaware that this knife was made in China. When I received it I noticed it didn't open as easily or quickly as my original Zing, purchased in December. When I started looking and comparing my old one to this one I also noticed the blade was not stainless on the this one. At any rate, I was a little disappointed that the quality of the knife was not the same but I guess that is the $20 price difference. The knife works and I will continue to use it.
