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."

8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.

Kershaw Burst
This Burst replaced my last one that I lost. I love these knives. They're well put together, take a good edge and can't be beaten for the money. The assisted opening comes in handy when fishing or hunting.

Excellent everyday carry.
I have to agree with JJB's review. I don't know the original thinking about why the groove is cut into the top of the blade, but being a survivalist I saw right away it's a perfect groove to strike a Ferro rod or fire steel to spark and start a fire. I will probably be ordering more for gifts in the future. HCK

Great daily carry
I use this as an every day carry. It's decently sharp and so lite that I forget that I am carrying it. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is I just don't know how it would hold up to very heavy use. I love this knife so much that this is the second one that I have bought. (I lost the first one) The ONLY real gripe I have is the butt end of the handle tends to dig in to my palm at times. It would go a long way to round off the sharp corners of the butt end so they are not as sharp.
