KS1970: Kershaw Burst Folding 3" Plain Blade
The Kershaw Burst pocket knives live up to their name. This pocketknife series opens very quickly and have a solid feel with liners under the handle material. The knife blade style is very aggressive. The Kershaw Burst pocket knives are reasonably priced and well built.

From Kershaw Knives, "The aggressive, spiked look of the Burst is sure to draw the eye and plenty of positive comment. You’ll appreciate its SpeedSafe® assisted opening, which is easily accessed with a convenient flipper. Oh yes; and do notice that flipper. We’ve directed the blade grind all the way down the flipper for a sweeping line. The handle is injection-molded, glass-filled nylon; a stout locking liner secures the blade during use. The Burst also includes a reversible pocketclip."

My Little Burst
Bought the Burst at a gun show in Mansfield, Ohio when I purchased my Volt SS. Love this knife! Razor sharp out of the box. Has good, good weight also. Flipper works great. Only gripe I have about it handle material could have been better! Other than that great knife except for the China marking. Sick of seeing everything made in China!!!

Cons: Blade Material, Pocket Clip, None
I was impressed when i got it..Good action solid lock up, quality seemed good...That is until i used it at work today..Got home and found a small nick or roll in the blade. All i did was use it on boxes so i'm kind of iffy on Kershaw's 8cr steel.I've had and been using a Gerber swagger witch is 7cr13 for 3 years and never rolled or chipped the blade, and i've used it to cut boxes,wood, carpet, rope, ect...This is my first Kershaw and i'm not impressed..But maybe just bad luck i got the defective one..But it did come razor sharp out of the box..I'll keep using it and see what happens..

untouchable at the 25 dollar price range.
I would have scored it a 5 out of 5 if it weren't for the anemic pocket clip, I removed it and just pocket carry it.
