Rated 4 out of 5 by PoppaDoc Almost perfect
The fit is perfect and the heft and balance are just right for me and it's made in the USA. It'd be a 5 star knife if it would lock in the open position more securely. Admittedly I was using it to pry and other non-intended uses but It has folded up and cut my fingers on more than one occasion. The edge was terrific out of the box, but it hasn't held up as I had hoped. I would still buy another but I would keep a cheaper pocket knife for the rough-stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Buzzbait A very sharp knife
I've had this knife for about 2 years now and it is still very sharp. I've used it to cut things I probably shouldn't have, like plastic cartons and shipping boxes, but it has maintained most of it's sharpness (though, it doesn't quite shave hair like it did when it was new). The blade has no looseness when it is rocked back and forth from side to side in the open position.
The assisted opening torsion bar is very cool. Effortless.
The only thing I don’t really like about it is the handle material. It's basically plastic, though it is very tough plastic.
Kershaw is the best, without a doubt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fshrmn Greatest Knife EVER!
This is the best knife I've ever owned. It's razor sharp right out of the box and really holds an edge. The spring assisted openning is awsome. I have both models.

GOOD KNIFE.VERY SHARP BLADE,GOOD HANDLE,AND BLADE OPENS REALLY FAST.THE ONLY THING THAT PREVENTED ME FROM GIVING IT THE HIGHEST RATING IS THAT THE POCKET CLIP IS A BIT LOOSE,BUT OTHER THAN THAT VERY NICE KNIFE.
