Kershaw Knives
 
SLIM, SHARP, AND SIMPLY MUST-HAVE

Even if you've never carried a knife with you every day, the Skyline just may convert you. Why? It's so lightweight, slim, and comfortable to carry that it takes away any excuse for not having the right answer when someone asks, "hey, has anybody got a knife?" With the Skyline, you'll always have the blade you need for everything from opening packages to slicing snacks.

The drop-point blade is versatile and offers good balance and a strong tip. The high-performance Sandvik 14C28N blade comes razor sharp and offers high wear and corrosion resistance. The profile of the Skyline is extra thin and it weighs in at just over two ounces making the Skyline a great choice for comfortable and discrete carry.

The deeply textured handle scales are G-10, barely add to the Skyline's weight, and provide for a secure grip. The handle design itself, with its deep index-finger contour, further enhances the Skyline's very secure grip. The Skyline opens manually with a built-in flipper. Just pull back on the flipper and add a slight wrist roll for quick and easy opening with left or right hand. A liner lock keeps the blade locked open for secure use.
Features
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Manual: There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Reversible: Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Lock Type
Cons: Handle Feel, None
It's an OKAY model but..
This knife is nice, but not what I was expecting. It's a neat design, but blade size doesn't match the size of the handle. The handle should be bigger or the blade smaller, either or. The knife feels off balance too. It also doesn't have jimping on the spine or the flipper like it should. The G10 scales don't grab your hands as much as previous models they've made (PackRat, Turbulence). It's fair when it comes to opening it with the flipper. It can be done, but takes more effort than others I've held before. It is sharp and has a decent figure choil but, I was a bit disappointed when I purchased it. Truthfully I should have returned it and bought a different model. I consider myself a fair grader when rating knives; I'm a big Kershaw fan, but this really doesn't cut it.

Cons: None
Would love to see Speedsafe added to this model
Overall an excellent knife. Blade came razor sharp. Very lightweight and fits easy in pocket. Cannot go wrong with this knife. Just had 1 recommendation. If Kershaw would have added the Speedsafe mechanism it would make it perfect for me. I don't know if its me but when I hold the knife I feel like the handle is smaller/thinner than the blade.
