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.

Great knife
This was a replacement for a larger knife that I had carried for quite awhile. Being a bit smaller it is lighter and less obtrusive to carry and use. I have larger hands and it has taken some adjustment, but I love the opening mechanism and the blade lock system; I do occasionally use it for none cutting "activities", tightening small screws on aviator headsets, and it works like a champ! Ala in all I'm very pleased with this knife and will be giving one to both my sons for the holidays, i.e. Christmas for the non PC.😉

I Ordered Another Oso Sweet After Giving One Away Some Time Ago
I gave my first one to my sister so I decided to order another one for my collection but anyway, for me it's a useful knife as it's small enough for my hands and I use it to cut down cardboard boxes. The flipper still bothers me a bit and I wished it was slightly bigger or some kind of change in the design of it. At first was difficult to open because the screw was pretty tight which a simple half turn of the screw holding the blade solved the problem, no big deal. It took about a week for me to get the knife, and I love how Kershaw gives you the option for left or right handed pocket clip carry and the knife comes sharp.
