Kershaw Knives
Great Choice For-It-All Knife

Work knife, EDC, outdoor knife? Yes, yes, yes. And a lot more, too.

The Rove features a drop-point blade of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, which offers good hardness, wear resistance, and edge retention. The stonewashed finish hides scratches and looks good. The blade opens quickly and easily with SpeedSafe assisted opening and the built-in flipper. Extra-heavy jimping on the flipper makes it extra easy to open—even in wet or slippery conditions.

The handle is glass-filled nylon with heavy texturing—again, to take care of those slippery conditions. An oversized, starburst pivot adds an extra touch of eye-catching interest.

The Rove's secure liner lock provides for safe blade lockup and releases easy when the job is done. The Rove also has a conveniently large lanyard hole and a reversible deep-carry pocket clip.
  • Flipper - May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The “flipper” is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
  • SpeedSafe - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • Liner Lock - Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife’s steel “liner,” the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Zytel Handles
Zytel Handles
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel
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: Handle Material, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: Blade Material, Lock Type, None
Great Knife
Amazing knife; does what if needs to do. Kershaw just needs to upgrade the blade material to something other than 8Cr13MoV and make the knife a frame lock.

Cons: None
Top value
An excellent value, overall. As good a knife as you will find at this price point. Very serviceable blade steel. Sleek, ergonomic, solid construction, reasonably lightweight, with the clip positioned perfectly for that little dab of added fingertip leverage during opening. (Opens manually with an ambi thumb stud, the old school way.) Locks up solid. Unlocks via a floating disc that is best activated with the right thumb, a mechanism that works perfectly for me, but could be a problem for lefties or users with giant mitts whose oversized digits conceivably could inadvertently wander onto the disc during hard use, causing an unexpected closure. In my view, The knife's only real drawback is that lefties will be a wee bit challenged to close it one-handed, though that can be accomplished, too, with a little practice.
