KS2050: 2050 Mixtape Folding Knife
Kershaw Knives
 
The Kershaw Mixtape is designed to provide a perfect mix of all the qualities you want in a lightweight, easy-to-carry pocketknife.

Kershaw used a variety of strategies to keep the Mixtape’s weight down. For instance, the handle features cutouts in the front and back. (You can you even see the single-position pocket clip through this handle "window," as it blends seamlessly with the rest of the knife.) The handle scales are glass-filled nylon, again for lighter weight. Additional weight relief is offered by the backspacer—or lack thereof. The Mixtape's open construction is easy to clean with a cotton swab and without disassembling the knife. See? Simple. Finally, a secure inset liner lock reduces weight even more by eliminating the need for a full internal liner. The result is a pocketknife that weighs just 2.7 ounces.

Yet the lightweight Mixtape also offers heavyweight performance. Its stonewashed blade is just over three inches and made of 8Cr13MoV steel, which takes a sharp, fine edge. The reverse tanto blade shape offers a sturdy tip that's ideal for piercing cuts. At the same, it has enough belly to handle most cutting tasks with ease.

Open the Mixtape using the built-in thumb disk. Flick it open quickly, one-handed, or go classic and simply fold the blade out of the handle. As a final touch, Kershaw added a custom decorative pivot for sharp looks, plus a bit of extra handle texture.
Features
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Inset Liner Lock - A strip of stainless steel is riveted inside the knife’s handle—most commonly when the handle is a lightweight material. This enables us to create a slimmer, lighter knife, while still providing the strength and security of a locking liner.
  • Single-Position Clip - The pocket clip is in a fixed position on the knife handle; usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary.

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.

Function meets Economy
I review knives based on what I'm getting vs what I'm paying. In this case you get a very functional EDC knife for under $30. Granted you're sacrificing blade steel quality but if you're spending south of $30 you know that going in. The knife itself has a nice smooth thumb stud opening and a sharp blade out of the box. Centering is not perfect but acceptable and there was no blade play. The weight of the knife, or lack thereof, is a real selling point for me as I prefer as light a knife as possible for a general EDC task blade. The pocket clip design is a bit tight but not as difficult as many knives I've purchased for more money. All in all this is a solid EDC blade that you can carry and not worry about getting down and dirty with based on it's price point.
