|I have owned this knife for years, great knife even at msrp. Have used for everything from opening boxes to cutting up faulty safety harnesses. The factory edge is "shaving sharp" and will stay that way for quite a while. Putting a new edge on it is easy if you know what your doing, might not get much practice due the knife holding its edge. The SpeedSafe feature is an assisted opening provided by a metal bar on the inside of the frame; mine lasted for about three years. The handle is plastic over a interior metal frame; causing a nonslip grip that is well balanced. The replacement part was delivered to me in less than a week( the parts ship from Oregon). All warranty issues can be addressed to www.kershawknives.com/ aside from a solitary blade they will ship you any part for your knife; you can even request parts for backups. for new blades I believe you have to ship back your knife; I haven't had to do this so I'm not 100% sure.
Great Knives from a great company!|
