Kershaw 1830 Oso Sweet Assisted Flipper Knife 3.1" Satin Plain Blade, Black GFN Handles
KS1830: 1830 Oso Sweet
This is indeed one sweet little pocket knife. 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 left-handed or right-handed, 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 pocket clip 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.

A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.
