Kershaw Knives
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.

You want it sharp?
I was frustrated with this knife for a while. I couldn’t get it sharp. Then I started getting familiar with secondary bevels on hollow ground blades. I got rid of the hollow grind in favor of a partial flat grind on a Buck, a Case, an Ontario, and now my Oso Sweet, just using sandpaper. They are all now very sharp, and easy to sharpen. Not a fan of Hollow grind

Great Christmas Gift – I Guarantee They’ll Love It
My son, who has worked in sporting goods for many years, turned me on to this knife some years ago. I have gifted them to many friends and relatives. They, in turn, have gifted them to their friends and relatives, and last year a friend gifted one back to me, coming full circle. Perhaps, the most popular EDC assisted folder in the USA. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Well made, great value, good steel, versatile blade style, grippy handle scales, perfect size for pocket carry, fast as an auto, and fun to flick. Probably, the most popular EDC in Illinois, where any knife carried concealed with a blade over 3”, is illegal (a dangerous weapon, > Insert eye roll here <, support I keep mine on my desk. It is just, so, satisfying to flick. OSO Sweet makes a great stocking stuffer, or exchange gift that they’ll actually like and use.
