Kershaw Knives

This is indeed one sweet little pocket knife. The Oso Sweet features a classic drop point blade that gives you maximum workaday utility. First, the Oso Sweet opens one-handed with SpeedSafe assisted opening. Just pull back on the ambidextrous flipper and the blade moves out of the handle ready for use. Whether you're left-handed or right-handed, your blade is easy to access and ready to go when you are. Kershaw heat-treats the 8Cr13MoV blade steel to bring out its high-performance characteristics like good edge retention, strength, hardness and wear resistance.

The handle is glass-filled nylon for excellent durability and incorporates a textured 'scales' pattern that gives the Oso Sweet a unique look. A locking liner secures the blade during use and closes easily for pocket carry or storage. The pocket clip can be reversed for tip-up or tip-down carry. Once you get your hands on one and start using it, we think it will be pretty popular with you, too.

Pros: Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Almost perfect (and awesome deal!)
This EDC is a helluva deal, a snappy, small, and useful knife. It does all I want it to and more. The single issue was the poor pocket clip and screw quality. When I was shifting the clip around to try out different carry options, I stripped the screw and it wouldn't go back into the holes. So, I got some replacements from Kershaw (excellent customer service BTW!) and it is back to being great. This is a perfect EDC and an entry level knife that is in my rotation regularly. Love this and it lives up to the name!

Pros: Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Sheath
No Artificial Sweeteners
Since I own this and have held and used it, I would buy one or two at this price if I did not own one. Or two. I don't think that I have three.. The opening and lock up are good. There is no blade play. Centering is spot on. I think it was reasonably sharp. It was a lot sharper after I worked on it.

I love this knife!
Before this knife, my favorite knife was the Leek. This knife is the same perfect size but with the following things I like better:About half the price.It feels better in my hand with grippy scales on both sides.I like its clip better.The blade is wider and sturdier with a better profile.I also prefer the liner lock to the frame lock.
