Description
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.

Nice EDC but made in China
I really fell in love with it when I first opened the box. After playing with it for a while saw the blade was made in China. For the price you cannot beat it - not too concerned if I loose it now. Fits well in the hand an opens really fast.

Well worth the price
I've owned this knife for a few years and it hasn't ever disappointed. The extremely sharp hollow-ground blade slices through darned near everything with little effort. With normal use (paper, cloth, plastic, rope) it stays pretty darned sharp. It isn't difficult to maintain a nice edge. My only complaint is that the handles are a little slick. The fish svale pattern dors provide some friction, but not a whole lot. If the knife was scaled-up to a slightly larger size (it is small), and a grippier set of handles installed, it would be better. But then again that's how the can sell this excellent knife for such a low price. Overall it is an excellent buy and a very good knife.
