Kershaw Knives

The success of Kershaw's made-in-the-USA Link series has yielded a Dividend. It's a slimmer, sleeker pocket carry—proudly made in the USA in Kershaw's Tualatin, Oregon factory, yet still built at a very affordable price.

While the original Link is a larger and stouter knife, some of you prefer a slimmer blade. The Dividend is made for you. Not too big, not too small, the Kershaw Dividend is a just-right-sized pocket knife. Its elegant Bohler M390 stainless steel modified Wharncliffe blade is a perfect 3" long and offers enough belly to be an efficient slicer. Bohler M390 is a powder metallurgically produced corrosion resistant martensitic stainless steel, with excellent abrasive wear resistance while maintaining good corrosion resistance. The knife is easy to open, even one-handed, with SpeedSafe assisted opening and the flipper.

The aluminum handles in goes-anywhere basic black curves gently to fit the hand comfortably. A decorative molded backspacer and left/right reversible pocket clip make the Dividend both handsome and handy.
Features
  • Flipper - 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 thumb stud 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.
  • 4-Position - The user may position the pocket clip for tip-up or tip-down, left or right-handed carry.
  • 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.

Wow
Great EDC. Feels light. Fits in the watch pocket in my pants. I have medium sized hands and fits absolutely perfect. Very solid feel. Steel is obviously high quality and you can tell. Came razor sharp. Assist is actually nice. Solid but not too too springy. Does raise some eyebrows when people see it spring out 'round my suburban area but it is a practical feature. Overall very happy with the purchase and great value for the money.

Inexpensive Intro to M390
Bought this knife as a way to experience M390 steel without spending a whole lot of money. The M390 on this knife has a nice satin finish. My diamond stones easily sharpened the edge to a mirror finish. Edge retention seems quite good, however I can't say I did any sort of scientific testing. I would definitely buy another knife in M390. Unfortunately, there are some things about this knife that keep it in storage and not in my pocket. The black aluminum scales look nice, but they are not very grippy. If this knife had G10 or Carbon Fiber scales, it would be a much better knife in my opinion. Also, I find the liner lock not to be a joy to use. It's not difficult, but it's a little tedious. Lastly, I don't really like assisted opening knives. By definition, assisted opening also means resisted closing.

Great knife!
Bought because of the steel. Its in my ECC rotation with several other Kershaws.good lockup. No blade play, sharp out of the box, light weight, good fit in hand and no hot spots. Clip is 4 way adjustable but prefer a deep carry clip althouh this clip will work. Thin and could almoust be called a "gentlemans carry". I love it!
