KS1830: 1830 Oso Sweet
Kershaw Knives
This is indeed one sweet little pocketknife. The Oso Sweet features a classic drop-point blade that gives you maximum workaday utility. First, the Oso Sweet opens one-handed with SpeedSafe assisted opening. Just pull back on the ambidextrous flipper and the blade moves out of the handle ready for use. Whether you're a left-hander or right-hander, your blade is easy to access and ready to go when you are. Kershaw heat-treats the 8Cr13MoV blade steel to bring out its high-performance characteristics like good edge retention, strength, hardness and wear resistance.

The handle is glass-filled nylon for excellent durability and incorporates a textured 'scales' pattern that gives the Oso Sweet a unique look. A locking liner secures the blade during use and closes easily for pocket carry or storage. The pocketclip can be reversed for tip-up or tip-down carry. Once you get your hands on one and start using it, we think it will be pretty popular with you, too.

Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Great Little EDC!!!
I love this knife!!! Have the red handled version. Nice shape of the blade and fits well in the hand. Use it all the time at work for cutting down carboard boxes and such. Had it for a couple years now and maybe touched up the blade twice? Wicked sharp, and keeps an edge. Only con I find on this oso sweet is the pocket clip. One, it looks kinda chintzy to me and two, it is not a deep carry clip. But other than that.....for the price-GET IT!!!

I love this knife
I have owned two of these, the first one was lost in the woods and had a flat grind and not the current hollow grind. I wish they would either offer these in a full flat or high saber grind. These are light, tough, and hold a good edge. The clip is not too stiff. The flipper is easy to open while offering enough resistance to keep it from accidentally opening. The handle is comfortable and it balances well. I like the spear point on knives like this as it gets into envelopes easily and will work for self defense. It's big enough to be able to do some work but it's not a huge, uber tactical looking knife. If you need a general use folder for an urban environment, this would be a fantastic choice.

Lightweight Champion
This knife was a gift from my daughter and it quickly became my favorite for EDC. The blade is acceptably sharp out of the boxing it opens easily. The magic comes when you open the knife and begin to use it as it was intended, for light to medium duty cutting. The blade is thin but deceptively strong and never failed me for the 2 years it was my every day companion. It bent but would spring back in every instance. I am ordering another as a replacement I was so impressed. A word of advice, remove the clip prior to it coming loose and causes problems for you and just carry loose in your pocket. It is weak, the screws are poorly secured and the clip was loose and gone within 2 weeks. Thus I award the grade of 4 instead of a 5. Great knife, crappy clip.
