Super Great Carry for Everyday
I live in northwestern Montana. I carry this knife everyday for a using blade. From cutting hay twine to gutting a deer, ear notching livestock to castrating calves, This knife is extremely useful. I have the plain blade, no serrations, as the serrated edge is likely to eat up finger skin for delicate work and I carry a multi-tool as well. Several strops on the crock sticks and it is shaving sharp.` When roping or team roping I carry a fully serrated blade but all other times I carry this knife. Vest pocket.....Perfect fit...Jacket chest pocket clips right in. Mine is AUS 08 steel, older model and still going strong. I have lost several of the smaller scale retaining screws over time and need to get replacements with a bit to fit; or, return the knife to Kershaw for a refurbishing, however, i don't want to use a different blade in the meanwhile. At the price I should have a couple on hand.
