I will have to see if I have any Kershaws left. I used to have a bunch but think they all got traded off. Kershaw is a excellent knife for the money. Their $20 - $30 range of knives have had the same if not better quality control, fit, and finish than competitors knives in the $100 range.

I got a Scalion and the way it fits in the hand prevents any slipping.

Gotta hop in with a few Kershaws.
Bottom is a Ken Onion 1470 USA.
Next up is an OSOSWEET assisted opener.
Third up is a selectfire with built in driver and bits.
Top one is a huge Emerson designed CQC-4KXL. 3.9" cuttin' edge.

They are good knives for the money. I have carried the 1470 for years and have not a single issue with it. The newer stuff is not as good, but cost a lot less than the 1470 did.
The Emerson is my biggest modern folding knife and weighs a whopping 6.1oz! The quality seems excellent! G10 on one side of the handle and stainless on the framelock side. No wiggle anywhere!

It's so sad that Kershaw knives are only budget options in the US.  :-[

There they are really nice, fun and inexpensive folders with so many different features (SpeedSafe, IKBS, different blade steels, shapes, sizes, handle materials and colors, etc.) you can try almost any and every feature of modern folding knives and have a very decent collection in a few months

(https://i.imgur.com/9wjvjs8.jpg)

My favorite that I own is the OSO Sweet, I could find it at very good price. :)

(https://i.imgur.com/DJvdeYG.jpg)

The ones I'd like to own are more than 30, but the CQC Series, the Chill, Whirlwind, Launch and the new Method have been on my  :drool:  sight for a long time. Their neck knives are also very sexy and decent looking.

If only Kershaw had a similar price in all countries, I'd have never gotten a Ganzo or other Chinese branded knives I'm sure of that   :rant:

I will post some newer pics tomorrow, but here's one to avoid, got it super cheap on amazon for like $13, but it is stupid big, heavy and the paint is slippery, I had to scuff the flipper and lock with a wire brush to make it easier to use, a beater I guess.

I have a bit of a Kershaw problem  :facepalm:

I very much like the Knockout.........  :drool: .......but I know it won't fit my carry.

Also very much like the Skyline, (semi) ordered it once, had it in hand and felt it was to small for me........bought by somebody else the same day....

Now there's a massive discount on it, and I've grown to love small & light  :facepalm:

Knockout is very light believe it or not, Will get a few pics up tomorrow, has a great wide blade and handle is pretty thin as well. Really great knife, I got amazing deal on it a few years back. Lots of people seem to like the skyline, I missed it at lower price and its just too much $ past couple of years

Title: Re: Let's see some Kershaw's!
Post by: Gerhard Gerber on February 06, 2018, 11:44:25 AM
The Knockout is the only Kershaw I can think of that always grabs my eye, and it has for a long time.

Every review I see just makes me want it more.......BUT.....

It might be thin but it's very wide, clipped it would work, in-pocket like I have to 80% of the time.....not so much.

Looking forward to the pics  :cheers:


BTW.....the supplier where my purchases come from has the G10 model in stock.......really love the green but not so much the black blade on the regular model.  :think:

Believe it or not the identity and knockout share a very similar footprint, but that's about it, I would rate Identity a 3/10 and knockout a 9/10, when you compare them it's hard to believe the same company makes both although one is USA made and the other made in China. When you use the knockout you say damn thats a good knife, the identity you say damn thats a pos  :rofl:

Kershaw Zing, got it on sale for $14, very slim like the Leek, and great assited action, but the thumb stud is poorly placed and unusable.

Funny how that works! :pok: :D I have the same issue with the thumb stud on my Scallion. The thumb stud is on both sides, but the handle is only notched out for right handed people, so it's hard to open with your left hand.

never knew that and I carry the black scallion from my pic above all the time, but in right pocket. this zing is impossible to use stud, its way too close to handle, sometimes I wonder how I get them so cheap until I discover the flaw.

Yeah, if you look at the two thumb studs, the right hand one actually has a groove in the handle for more room. I find it easier to just use the plunge for deployment, being left handed.

Those Emerson designed Kershaws are great knives for the money. Especially if you can utilize the "wave". I have the cqc-4kxl and find the quality to be very high.
Nice knife,  Loop!

^ Thank you.  I have two more at home, a CQC-6K and a CQC-7K, both are frame lock styles. 

Wicked sharp, with the 5K being under the blade length some job sites allow. 

I unknowingly had a CQC-7, bought at flea market in 99 or 2000, it was a work horse with  a chisel grind and tanto blade, it was a TOOL.  Some one else thought so too! Picked it from my tool kit immediately when I was around a corner pulling some wire. It was when I looked to replace did I learn about Emersons and what I lost. Loved the handle material as well.

been eyeing this one, price is a little steep but gonna be patient and wait for a nice drop, anybody own this guy cqc11k:

Of the color options for the Link, blue was the best looking combo with the dark blade that I could find. I sort of accidentally got into blue knives. It started with my scout knife, then next thing I know, I have a whole fleet of blue blades! Even down to the Kentucky "bluegrass" Stockman :D :cheers:

AFAIK all Kershaw knives made on the USA were upgraded or updated with the flag in 2016,
previous to that it was only on a few select models   :salute:

That's good to know, because my link has the flag on the blade, and my Scallion only has it on the handle, and nowhere on the blade

Kershaw Knockout! A.K.A the 1870BLK.
The handles are aluminum, but there is a place "knocked out" of the frame for a steel lock bar. Pretty cool knife. :)

Thank You, Beard! I had watched some youtube videos saying how good it was and traded two of my other Kershaws for the Olive BLK Knockout (love anything olive handled) for it when the chance came. Can't believe the Knockout only costs $60 new. Seems like it would be more with the Swedish steel and aluminum handles.

Hey Demel,
Kershaw has a lot of good knives using Sandvik steels that are much better than their Chinese 8cr and 3cr blades. Even their 420hc(like the Link) seems to retain an edge a bit better than the 8cr they use. Although, I really like the Cryo that uses 8cr13mov for the price, so I cannot complain too much. :P

do you have the g10 model? if so how is it? the regular one has very tight clip, I like the knife a lot but dont carry that much cause its hard to pull out of jeans pocket

I have the heavy steel Cryo, but would like to get a G10 cryo at some point!
Most Kershaw clips are too tight on my carpenter jeans. This is in no way encouraging doing this, but I usually over spring the clip a little at a time until it is "just right".  :)

as I posted before, my first Kershaw was a Nura 3.5, (https://www.knifecenter.com/item/KS4035TIKVT/kershaw-4035tikvt-nura-35-flipper-folder-plain-blade-stainless-steel-handles) at the time their cheapest offering with KVT. I don't have that Nura today, but I remember its flipping action and budget but very serviceable steel got me in love with the brand, following 4 more knives after that one  :salute:

I think my issue is actually the deep carry clip and big screw heads near the top, and I usaully wear jeans so Its hard to get the top of clip to sit on pocket seam, but I might give your idea a try....but damn that is one strong clip
Title: Re: Let's see some Kershaw's!
Post by: gerleatherberman on March 16, 2018, 01:26:43 PM
Ahh! I see what you mean now! Those screw heads are ridiculous. Even the Knockout has them.
I wonder if there is a source for screws with more flattened heads?
I'll do some searching around tonight. There has to be a quick fix for the screws. I generally tend to just push the clip over the pocket seam and stop at the screws. Not ideal, nice looking or seemingly secure. :-\
I wouldn't mind buying a really cheap folding knife to rob the screws off of, but the threading may be the issue. The screws can be cut down if they are too long for tip down carry.

Post by: ezdog on March 16, 2018, 11:16:51 PM
I actually have both and it is hard to believe they are really the same knife?

I got the original steel Cryo first and just can not stand it overall and then I found a G10 version priced right and decided to give it a shot and I LOVE it!

The whole G10 knife is good to me that it has become my carry when I think it might get confiscated but better than junk knife choice!
Try to shorten that title?
So for instance if working in Chicago I take the G10 or flying and checking bags,I never mind using it or feel under knifed but it also was not pricey enough to cry about.

YMMV obviously
