They're some of the first of Kershaw's Ken Onion SpeedSafe knives and still among the best. All feature 13C26 stainless-steel blades for strength and corrosion resistance. The Blackout's blade is also coated with scratch-resistant Tungsten DLC for a handsome, non-reflective surface. All knives include a contoured handle of injection-molded polyimide, an extremely durable engineering plastic, for a comfortable and stable grip. Stainless-steel liners add to the overall handle strength.

    Kershaw is an OK knife I have had a hard time keeping an edge on them versus Benchmade

    I own one and it is hard to get a good edge on it.

    I just purchased my second Kershaw. The first finally broke after carrying it for 6 yrs. and using for everything. I love the assisted opening feature.

    I carry my Kershaw 1640 Vapor. Reliable, keen blade. Does not open one-handed as easily as I would like, but it is a good functional knife.

    Kershaw knives are great. I have many around the house. One issue I have is they loose their edge faster then Buck, Cold Steel and some of the other high end knives on the market. But, they are also a lot easier to sharpen then the others listed above.

    I have had my kershaw for almsot 10 years, and i'm only 23. Its great its got good grip and a blade that is big enough for field dressing elk, and small enough to gut out small fish. I dont think I can remember not using it everyday.

    Good knife, had and used mine for about 2 years before the internal assist device wore out.

    I currently own and carry a Kershaw 'Storm', 'Chive' and 'Needs Work'. The 'Storm' is my working knife and is awesome. The 'Needs Work is THE sharpest 'out-of-the-box' knfe I have ever owned. The only thing I don't like about the 'Needs Work' is the's too small, IMO.

    The BEST thing? They are 100% AMERICAN MADE!
