Hard to beat for the price
Like many of us, I own much higher-grade knives and a number that were ten times this price. But, there are times and places when I want to carry a less-expensive knife, one that won’t break my heart if I damage it. I’ve fixated pretty specifically on the Chinese-made Kershaws for these, and the Volt II is a favorite. It’s just an excellent knife, and would be at twice the price. No, it’s not like my ZT’s overall, or even the US-made Kershaws. (Like my favorite, the Blur) But it’s one great knife for the money. Fine blade, comes razor sharp, and takes a great edge. Nice, secure handle, and Speed-Safe is hard to beat. Just a superb design and execution, like every Kershaw.
