Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Pocket Clip
Small & light
I just love Kershaw. Out of the box it was shaving sharp. Very sharp tip so u have to be careful when opening & closing the knife. The lock is also useful to prevent it from accidentally open in your pocket. The only cons is that this knife is not deep carry, it will stick out from your pocket about 1/2 inch i guess. Highly recommended for EDC!

This is a great little knife. Well made and it had all the things I needed for work. It had legal length, light weight and a sharp point for removing splinters( I,m a wood worker.

Perfect for its intended use
I have this leek, but with the black blade. I have always been a Spyderco guy, but when I got this knife I ended up carrying it more often than any of my other knives. It's small and light, but not so small that it has an issue doing anything. The only issue I had with it was the tip of the blade. It is very sharp and thin, if you aren't careful it could chip off. However, I see this knife as more of a precision EDC, so if you're doing anything with it that could chip the tip of the blade off, you should probably be using a different knife anyway. The grip is a little slick, as it's just smooth aluminum, but it does feel good. I have heard people say the blade steel is of a lower quality than most higher-end knives. This may be true, but as I said before I consider it a precision EDC, so it doesn't concern me. It sharpens well and holds the edge fine as far as I'm concerned. You will not be disappointed if you're looking for a small EDC.

Sharp, Smooth, Stylish
I bought this knife as my EDC and needed it to like nice even when im dressed up for work. ODG makes the knife look better than plain old black. The assisted opening works perfectly and comes in handy when your other hand is busy. Great Knife by Kershaw.

Sharp and comfortable knife
I love how this knife feels in my hands. It's very sharp and ergonomically engineered. It sits nice in my pocket, the assisted open works well and the lock is a nice feature. Did I mention it's sharp? Stupidly, I cut myself deep twice in the first two weeks of owning this thing. Every part of me, except my two thumbs missing flesh, love this knife.

Look for a different model
I love Kershaw knives but I have to speak out against this one. First off, the blade is sharp, but not as sharp as my Kershaw Needs Work; which is funny because both knives have the same steel (Sandvik 14C28N). This started to rust in my pocket after a day which I was dumbfounded about considering my Needs Work has never rusted being in my pocket for months, if not a year by now. My hands are not the biggest, but, it's not beefy enough either. Also, this knife collects more pocket lint than any I've ever carried, which interferes with the assisted opening mechanism. The pocket clip is so tight, it actually hurts your fingers to lift it just slightly and attach it to your pants, jeans, etc. Personally, the knife is too light if you ask me. I don't believe it can withstand much heavy duty use over time. It's not a terrible knife but I know there's others which are made better. Keep this as a display in your collection instead.
