Kershaw Knives
The missing link—between a quality, made-in-the-USA knife and a price most consumers can afford—has been found. Or, to be more precise, Kershaw is making it. Appropriately, it is called the Link and has been given the patriotic model number of 1776.

This Link, model 1776GRYBW, is Kershaw's drop-point blade model. The 420HC stainless blade steel has higher amounts of carbon and chromium to boost hardenability and corrosion resistance. It is an excellent everyday steel: tough, corrosion resistant, easy to sharpen and takes a good edge. The Blackwash finish gives the blade the well worn look of your favorite pair of jeans and offers additional blade protection.

The handles are machined from lightweight aluminum and anodized dark gray. The sculpted lines of the handle provide for a comfortable and secure grip. It feels big and solid in the hand and offers a clean look.

For easy opening, the Link is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening, accessed with the built-in flipper. The pocketclip is reversible for convenient left or right-handed pocket carry. The Link is made in Kershaw’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Tualatin, Oregon.
  • Flipper - May be used on wither manual or assisted opening knives. The "flipper" is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on , or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
  • SpeedSafe - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper, built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • Liner Lock - Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife's steel "liner," the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.
  • Made in the USA - When you see this on one of their knives, it means the knife was made in Kershaw's Tualatin, Oregon manufacturing facility by skilled Kershaw knifemakers.

Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: None
I have used the Link as my EDC for a couple of years now and it is my favorite Kershaw and I have many. For the money, this USA made knife is very high quality, feels good in the hand and opens very quickly. It is a very solid knife and is a perfect size for me. If I had any nit pick with it at all, it would be that it is just a little on the heavy side but I think that is why it feels so solid. I love it.

Great USA made
Knife arrived ahead of schedule. Always great experience with Knife Center. VERY impressed with the toughness of this knife. Blade very sharp out of the box. No play up/down or side to side with the liner lock. First Kershaw in collection and must say...This thing is a beast. Incredible knife for a great price. A touch bit heavy for EDC, but enjoy it so much I am willing to overlook. I only carry USA made and will definitely will be on the lookout for more from Kershaw.
