A really great knife for the money
I've had my Kershaw 3870 for a month, and it has become my everyday carry knife. It's short enough, thin enough, and light enough for comfortable pocket carry. I'm not a clip carry fan, so I removed the pocket clip from my knife to make it more comfortable in my hand. The knife requires just a bit of effort to open, enough to make it safe but not enough to be objectionable. The blade locks securely when it's opens, and it is very stable in the frame. The locking tab also requires just a bit of effort to disengage, but this also adds to the knife's safety, The knife easily takes a very sharp edge, and it holds the edge quite well. Based on my experience during the first month with this knife, I am confident and comfortable recommending it to others.
