KS1830: Oso Sweet
Kershaw® Knives

Kershaw SpeedSafe® Work Knives, spicy and sweet.

Made in Asia, Designed by Ken Onion.

The Oso Sweet features a classic Ken Onion design, but with a tasty twist—a handle of injection molded glass-filled nylon with a distinctive ‘scales’ pattern. The Oso Sweet offers a blade of high-quality 8Cr13MoV stainless-steel for toughness and edge retention.

The Oso Sweet features the patented SpeedSafe® assisted opening system for smooth, easy opening. This one-handed, index-finger opening design makes the knives easy to deploy—for both left and right-handed customers.

A locking liner ensures the blades stay securely in place until the user closes it. Also, the Oso Sweet includes a reversible pocket clip for tip-up or tip-down carry options.

Perhaps best of all, the Oso Sweet is value priced, so it’s easy to add them to your collection. Knife users who appreciate good looking, hardworking knives, a Ken Onion SpeedSafe® design—and a great price—are sure to want to add both the Needs Work and the Oso Sweet to the menu.

Cons: Blade Material
Nice EDC but made in China
I really fell in love with it when I first opened the box. After playing with it for a while saw the blade was made in China. For the price you cannot beat it - not too concerned if I loose it now. Fits well in the hand an opens really fast.

Pros: Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Handle Feel, Handle Material, None
Well worth the price
I've owned this knife for a few years and it hasn't ever disappointed. The extremely sharp hollow-ground blade slices through darned near everything with little effort. With normal use (paper, cloth, plastic, rope) it stays pretty darned sharp. It isn't difficult to maintain a nice edge. My only complaint is that the handles are a little slick. The fish svale pattern dors provide some friction, but not a whole lot. If the knife was scaled-up to a slightly larger size (it is small), and a grippier set of handles installed, it would be better. But then again that's how the can sell this excellent knife for such a low price. Overall it is an excellent buy and a very good knife.
