excellent blade shape. very sharp out of the box, required no touching up at all. perfect size for edc. nice pocket clip. nice design overall. but the speed safe is by far the strongest ive felt on any kershaw, and i have 11. it is fastttt opening. fast !
Pros: Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Similar to the ZT 0770 and a great bargain. Like the 0770, you can remove the torsion bar to make it manual. The ball detent is a little on the light side but does stay closed in the pocket and flips open with a solid "click"..Finish on the scales scratch a little easily but not too bad.
Great blade. Very stiff and sturdy. No lateral give at the hinge. Fast smooth flip and locks tight. Excellent heft and hand feel. Have not tried but feels throwable. Have a few Kershaws and I like this the best.
Pros: Ease of Opening, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
I bought this knife for my wife to keep in her car for emergencies. The knife looks great and fits her hand well. The speed assist is great and the knife rockets open with just a light touch on the flipper. The blade locks up solidly and there is no play in the blade at all. It came very sharp out of the box. This was an excellent purchase, I'm very happy with it.
I have used the Link as my EDC for a couple of years now and it is my favorite Kershaw and I have many. For the money, this USA made knife is very high quality, feels good in the hand and opens very quickly. It is a very solid knife and is a perfect size for me. If I had any nit pick with it at all, it would be that it is just a little on the heavy side but I think that is why it feels so solid. I love it.
Bought this for a durable EDC that was made in the USA, but did not cost a fortune. Handle feels comfortable for XL glove size. Very solid and sturdy. No blade play in any direction. Blade deploys a little stiff but completely locks and will smooth out with lube and use. Very sharp as per Kershaw. Love this knife. Great price for a USA made knife of this quality build/materials. As always KnifeCenter is top notch.

WOW. PERFECT EDC.
this is an excellent high-quality knife. some people complain about 420 high carbon.I've used it for years on buck knives with no problem.excellent build quality with the aluminum handles.the blade is not black it looks like some type of Bluing. the swege on the back end is very cool.it slams out extremely fast and I'm very impressed. the spring can be removed if you don't want an assisted knife. it has a divot in the blade so it will act just like a regular flipper. completely 100% United States made.God Bless America. it's a good looking tough knife..I bought one for me and one for my son.once again KNIFE CENTER comes through with flying colors.EXCELLENT PRODUCTS FROM AN EXCELLENT COMPANY.
Edc. Takes a wicked sharp edge. Needs honed every so often. I love the full belly blade of this knife. It's a crazy fast assisted opening knife that will do well for self defense and all around knife chores.

I purchased this knife to take when I go backpacking in the woods. The action is fast and smooth. It is heavy and durable, a little too heavy for what I purchased it for but I am going to use it because it is very durable

Great USA made
Knife arrived ahead of schedule. Always great experience with Knife Center. VERY impressed with the toughness of this knife. Blade very sharp out of the box. No play up/down or side to side with the liner lock. First Kershaw in collection and must say...This thing is a beast. Incredible knife for a great price. A touch bit heavy for EDC, but enjoy it so much I am willing to overlook. I only carry USA made and will definitely will be on the lookout for more from Kershaw.
