It’s not always just about the blade, it’s how you are intending to deploy it and how it fits in your hand. If you can flip it open or grip it properly, then it’s not the knife for you. Many of these tactical knives or EDC knives are very different in contour and design and its yet another one of those things many people like to see before they buy. Kershaw seems to be at the top of the pyramid as far as quality and name recognition and they have been often known to work with other companies to build unique designs. They are one of the top gift knives that wives or girlfriends come in our store looking for around Christmas time.
Some of the Kershaw knives we sell are are that that expensive like the Kershaw Cryo assisted knives but they have very small blades about 2.75 inch blades to a little over 3″ in relation to the size of the grips. Nothing wrong with that but I prefer a blade like the Kershaw Ken Onion blackout with a 3.25 Blade. To each his own but in this industry blades, handles, materials all can vary but you are going to get a lot of use out of anything made by Kershaw. For those of that do a lot up in the mountains camping the Kershaw Camp 14″ Machete can be very useful and not something that an EDC knife can do.
