The Kershaw Grinder is designed to be put to work.

To that end, the Grinder offers a blade with a slightly curved belly for all-purpose cutting and slicing. A clipped, tanto-inspired tip offers excellent piercing capabilities, too. If you need to bear down on the back of the blade during a particularly tough cutting job, the concave spine with heavy jimping provides additional grip security. The work-ready blade is made of 4Cr13MoV steel for hardness and wear resistance. Then Kershaw expertly heat-treats it to enhance edge retention and strength.

The Grinder is always ready to go to work quickly thanks to the SpeedSafe assisted opening and convenient built-in flipper. A secure liner lock keeps the blade securely open during work until the user releases it. The glass-filled nylon handle is ergonomically contoured to fit the hand securely and grooved to offer an extra-secure grip. The deep-carry pocket clip is easily reversible for tip-down, right- or left-handed carry.
  • Flipper - May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The “flipper” is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
  • SpeedSafe - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • Liner Lock - Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife’s steel “liner,” the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Pros: Handle Material, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: Handle Feel, Blade Material, None
Glad I took a chance.
I was drawn to the design. The reverse Tanto blade looked like it would be pretty functional for a lot of duties. The grip looked very ergonomic. Haven't really used the knife, so I can't speak to it's actual functionality. The grip is less comfortable than it looks. The nearest I can figure is that the shape of the handle allows the fingers to come in contact with the sharp edges of the liner. A little filing may fix this. This handle gives fantastic grip. One thing I haven't heard mentioned is that the blade is a flat grind. Rare at this price point. Others may disagree, but I think the flat grind is superior to the hollow grind that is on most folders at this price.

Pros: Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip
Cons: None
Decent work knife at this price.
Purchased a couple of months ago and use it mainly around the property and shop. Inexpensive blade so I don't mind abusing it a little. Feels good in the hand. Blade shape is odd, but useful for detailed cutting and scraping. I like that my thumb can be placed up on the back of the blades spine and feels secure. Action etc. is good and fortunately the blade sharpens easily.

Cons: Ease of Opening, Blade Material
Finally corrected steel
Glad to see the steel type was finally corrected so nobody going toward has to be disappointed like I was. Still wondering why none of my previous reviews were posted... Nice design but sub-par blade steel and insufficient assist strength to fully open without wrist-flick. I was hoping this would be an adequate replacement for the awesome 'Needs Work'. Not so. Kershaw has done, and could do, much better with this design than this offering.
