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.

How sweet it is!
I'm kinda new to knives, don't know to much about them but I love this knife! I love the look, I live the feel, and I love the action! The people I've shown it to guessed it cost a lot more then I payed for it. It looks like a high quality knife! The action was a little stiff at first, but the more I use it the easier it gets.

For th price its good
U cannot beat the price for the blade. it feels great in hand and the blade design is fantastic. I had very hard time flipping it open though. Tried loosening the pivet but then the blade wobbles from side to side. Additionally i prefer frame locks but wanted to try it. Also bought the S30V Blur at same time and u can realllly feel the difference in both opening and closing the blade.
