Pros: Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Weight, Ease of Opening, Lock Type
Cons: Handle Material, Handle Feel, None
First off, what a great company. Value, price, & quality is there in all their knives. You don't have to come off a Benjamin to get a good knife. That said, there are compromises made. In this case, the handle material. Just like the OSO Sweet you get nylon handles. Are G10 handles, like on the CRKT Drifter/Spyderco value-line knives, really that more expensive? What a difference that would have made! Still a great little EDC knife. My other complaint is Kershaw got the flipper all wrong. It's way more digging into your index finger deploying here. Gimping is good, but if you were to slip thrusting, you have that flipper to deal with again now at your knuckle! Popping sharp out of the box and still so after two weeks of lite EDC use. I'd say they got the hardness right on this one. Weight is good(they don't say), but a little more than the OSO(8CR13MOV steel). Between the two, I gotta say I like the Burst better...just a better feel in the hand.
