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."

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
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.

Great Knife
I have 10 Kershaw knives and this one is my favorite! The detail in the blade and flipper look like a much more expensive knife . Only wish is that it had g10 scales

Kershaw Krazy!
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.
