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.

love it
This is my everyday knife and I love it. Razor sharp and very fast opening and the small size doesn't draw attention. Good grip too

Very Functional Knife
I've had this knife for about two years now. It is by far my most carried and most used knife. I personally don't really like the looks of it, just aesthetically speaking but you cannot deny the oso sweets functionality. It has a very functional blade shape, made of reasonably good steel. It stays sharp for awhile and it's not too hard to resharpen. The only downside I would say about this knife is that the pocket clip leaves a lot of the knife sticking out of your pocket. I've never lost the knife, but it can be a little conspicuous with the little silver pocket clip. Overall excellent knife for the price, totally recommended if you just need a cheap but very high quality knife for everyday tasks.
