KS1730TBLK: Groove - G-10 Handle
Kershaw® Knives

The machined blade is made of Sandvik 13C26 for durability, hardness, and excellent corrosion and wear resistance. The handle is 410 stainless steel with G-10 overlays that provide for an extra-secure grip. The Groove's one-handed, index-finger opening design makes it smooth and the system has a unique build up of pressure and then pops open for easy deployment for both left and right-handed customers. There's also a secure frame lock when the blade is open. A removable pocket that can be reversed for tip up or tip down carry is also attached.
Designed by custom knife maker RJ Martin, the Groove is characterized by a unique 3-D machined blade with a striated pattern. It also features a dramatic abstract handle that is a signature Martin design.

Perfect quality and style! Wish the knife would be a bigger size, but the weight compensates for it. Really makes people envy! Wicked toy!

Cons: None
Excellent value
I got this knife because I had been wanting a tanto point blade, and also because I already have its little brother, the Kershaw zing, and I love that knife as well. The grooves on the knife look really cool, but they are functional as well. They reduce friction when cutting through all kinds of materials. It fits my hand like a glove, and the g10 overlays provide a secure grip. Sandvik is a great steel that really holds an edge and keeps it. I will definitely order another one in the future, as well as its clip point counterpart. The recurve on the blade is awesome, and is better than I would have thought for utility purposes. The flipper allows you to open the knife very quickly one handed, and the frame lock has a bank vault like lock up. Overall, another home run from Kershaw and RJ Martin!

Pros: Overall Quality, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Blade Material, Handle Material, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Sheath, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip
Cons: None
I've had this beauty for about 3weeks now, there was a minor scratch on the spine when I pulled it out of the box, I would have sent it back but it took too long for it to be in stock so I'm just going to hang on to this one. Overall, there is nothing bad I can say about the knife, excellent grip. The handle fits the contours of the hand. Opens like nothing, and the blade is just so beautiful
