KS1830: 1830 Oso Sweet
Kershaw Knives
This is indeed one sweet little pocketknife. The Oso Sweet features a classic drop-point blade that gives you maximum workaday utility. First, the Oso Sweet opens one-handed with SpeedSafe assisted opening. Just pull back on the ambidextrous flipper and the blade moves out of the handle ready for use. Whether you're a left-hander or right-hander, your blade is easy to access and ready to go when you are. Kershaw heat-treats the 8Cr13MoV blade steel to bring out its high-performance characteristics like good edge retention, strength, hardness and wear resistance.

The handle is glass-filled nylon for excellent durability and incorporates a textured 'scales' pattern that gives the Oso Sweet a unique look. A locking liner secures the blade during use and closes easily for pocket carry or storage. The pocketclip can be reversed for tip-up or tip-down carry. Once you get your hands on one and start using it, we think it will be pretty popular with you, too.

Lightweight Champion
This knife was a gift from my daughter and it quickly became my favorite for EDC. The blade is acceptably sharp out of the boxing it opens easily. The magic comes when you open the knife and begin to use it as it was intended, for light to medium duty cutting. The blade is thin but deceptively strong and never failed me for the 2 years it was my every day companion. It bent but would spring back in every instance. I am ordering another as a replacement I was so impressed. A word of advice, remove the clip prior to it coming loose and causes problems for you and just carry loose in your pocket. It is weak, the screws are poorly secured and the clip was loose and gone within 2 weeks. Thus I award the grade of 4 instead of a 5. Great knife, crappy clip.

Oso Sweet...
Great lightweight pocket carry. Good quality and holds an edge. Pocket clip is a little stiff.

Everything I expected
This knife is an excellent working man's knife. It operates flawlessly. Smooth, lightning quick opening and a solid lock. Really has a nice "snap". I use a pocket knife almost daily and it's nice to have one in your pocket you can count on. Holds an edge too. I just barely had to "touch it up" to be razor sharp. Very economical and solid knife.
