For their price point, these Kershaw’s are top of the line. The spring loaded blade makes them so desirable and easy to use. They are known for their quality blades, and for good reason, but I love the spring load feature the best. I always tell people to not cheap out when it comes to a good pocket knife, and Kershaw gives you a top of the line knife at a more affordable price point. Not to mention, on Amazon you can catch it on sale from time to time, currently only $40. I’ve been using this for years and I have yet to see a downside. I never am with out it, and I highly recommend.
