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.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Possibly the best “cheap” knife I’ve ever owned.
I own some much finer and more expensive knives from Benchmade, ZT, etc., and always will. But, on our acreage here, there are everyday tasks that about kill my knives (and have ruined many) so I always carry an inexpensive knife for them. I honestly can’t kill this little Chinese Kershaw! The blade is scratched to bits, etched from acid, and is plain old ugly. Yet, it still takes a great edge, the handles look new, the assisted-opening is still flawless. It’s tough, light, and an incredible value. I’ll be ordering a couple more so that I always own one, when the inevitable happens and I finally kill this.

Your Third Hand
Ease of use of this flip knife literally gives you a third hand; being able to open it one handed. And it is safe to use with confidence.
