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.

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.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Solid Choice For EDC
I bought this knife because of the reasonable pricing and Kershaw name to carry every day. The knife rides well in your pocket, opens easily, and so far looks like it holds an edge well. The knife opens easily. However, I wish the flipper had been made just slightly larger. This is a very minor criticism and would not keep me from purchasing another.

Cons: Handle Material, Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel
Feels cheap!
The blade was very sharp and holds the edge well. The flipper works good, the blade opens smooth, fast and locks up solid with very little play when open. The blade lock is hard to release. The handle looks good but feels light and cheap in hand. It needs a system to lock the blade closed when needed, I had a folding knife open in my pocket and it cost my 8 stitches VERY close to my....well u get it. All in all it's worth the little money it cost!

Oso Sweet
I use the knife at work we are opening boxes frequently, and the compact size makes it easy to carry in your pocket. When you need to cut the packing tape to open the box quick reach in your pocket and hit the assisted open tab a bam your cutting tape.
