KS1980ST: 1980ST RJ II
Kershaw Knives
RJ Martin's blade design and grind gives you the piercing power of a tanto with just enough curve to the belly for slicing aptitude as well. The tanto point is even stronger than comparable tantos because Kershaw makes the tip thicker and gives it a tough flat grind. The result is an uber-strong tip that takes on the toughest piercing tasks with no fear. But the RJ II isn't done yet.

This knife offers a full range of cutting edges. The plain edge is ever so slightly curved, giving the RJ II slicing capability—something not all tanto blades offer. In addition, the blade is partially serrated to make cutting through tough or fibrous materials a breeze. The blade is made of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel that's tough, wear-resistant and takes a keen edge. For a distinctive look and enhanced performance, the blade is coated with titanium carbo-nitride.

The RJ II also features 3D machined G10 handle scales and a secure stainless steel locking liner. It opens with one-handed ease thanks to the SpeedSafe assisted opening system. Access it with the built-in flipper or thumbstud. The pocketclip is reversible for tip-up or tip-down carry. Tactical looks and a multifunctional blade combine in the RJ II.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Surprisingly Comfortable, Wicked Fast
This is my first assisted opener and it has become my favorite for EDC. It looks blocky but is actually quite comfortable in the hand. Never worked with an assisted opener before and wasn't sure I'd like it, but now all my knives with thumb studs and holes in the blade spend all their time in the drawer. The blade was razor keen out of the box and touches up nicely.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
I needed a knife to use at work, and didn't want to spend too much. This knife was exactly what I wanted and at a fantastic price. I use it constantly and have it with me all the time. It feels great in the hand, with a very nice grip texture perfect weigh/balance. Would recommend to anyone that needs a good utility knife for everyday general use.
