FANTASTIC!
FAN-D*MN-TASTIC! For the money, it cannot be beat. Love the wharncliffe blade. Straight cutting edges are MUCH easier to sharpen. Only improvements would be a longer blade & better blade steel. Make no mistake, the 8crmov (whatever) steel is good. Just vg-10 is better.

Cons: None
Great value, good looking and welll designed.
I have only had this knife for 2 weeks.The blade is a nice size and came out of the box shaving sharp. The wharncliffe design works well in piercing and slicing duties at work and in the kitchen. The two tone finish is very stylish, my co-workers comment on its looks and feel too. Blade alignment is top knotch and with a small tweek on the TDS screw, it opens easily but is still secured. The slim design feels comfortable in your pocket with no hard edges to irritate you, I don't notice it at all during the days work. Get one while you can.

What I Expected
I gave it a 5 because honestly, there isn't much of anything wrong with it in my eyes. With that said, I don't have experience with 100's of knives and I am sure there are much more refined and comfortable knives. The spring-ball detent holding it closed is somewhat strong, others I have let look at it had a hard time opening it. It IS somewhat hard to open from a relaxed hand grip. You have to sort of deliberately position your hand properly to more easily flip the blade out, but I think that in itself helps with control and proper hand posture. It forces you to get good. Overall the blade is exactly as expected in terms of design, size, appearance. The metal frame is cold which I am not used to as I have always had a blade with some type of composite handle. Anyway, for the price it's perfect for me.

finally here
Not sure why it took a year from the time I ordered it 'till the time I received it but Kershaw finally came through. Really well made piece - Sharp as a razor. Since I'm a lefty I appreciate that I can carry it tip up in my LH front pocket - Nice and convenient. Takes a bit extra pull to get the blade to start to pop open compared to a spring assist - Which I'd love to see - but that's how the blade gets the inertia to open up all the way quickly. What's a bit more difficult for me, again as a lefty, is closing the knife - As I hold it in my left hand I have to reach my thumb around the liner lock and pull it back rather than push it back compared to a RH user. OK, I'm used to that, but being that the liner lock is flush w/the frame, I have to push down with my thumb to keep it enguaged w/the lock as well as pull back. I'd like to see the liner lock stick up above the frame a 16th or so to make it easier to close. Other than that - Well worth the price of admission.
