Knife review Kershaw Blackout a ladies perspective

Shop Kershaw Knives – http://astore.amazon.com/kershaw06-20 Review of the Kershaw Blackout. Kershaw puts out some really good reasonably priced knives. Great…


Megan asked What is a speed safe pocket knife?

i was looking into buying a new kershaw pocket knife, and I was wondering what the term speed safe means. is it like spring assisted? and sorry but here was really no category that I thought this belonged in.

And got the following answer:

Yeah, that’s pretty much it. Spring, more like a torsion bar flips the blade open, but initially the blade resists opening. I have a few of those, never had a problem, but quite a few knife guys dislike them, citing potential hazards of opening in the pocket, which never happened to me.
I dunno where you are, so you might wanna check out local laws regarding assisted openers. They are ok in California, here’s the breakdown of CA knife carry laws – http://zknives.com/knives/articles/law/caknifelaws.shtml

Amber asked What kind of knife should I get?

My boyfriend is really into knives and such, and for his graduation present I’d like to get him one with his name engraved in it. I don’t know much about knives so I was wondering what type to get him. I would prefer something he can carry.

My limit is $150

Links/ideas?

And got the following answer:

Knives are the oldest tools in human history and all the knife detractors here, own at least one kitchen knife or more. Still, they come out with whacky statements.

Anyway, for one, I suggest you buy on the internet, because it will be cheaper compared to brick and mortar stores.

Second, switchblades are not illegal in all US states, but are in some. So, unless you know local law it’s better to stay with plain folding knives.

Speedsafe knives can be also an issue. I know in California they are legal, but not so sure about the other states, at least I don’t know where they are illegal.

And blade length can be an issue too. Various states and even local towns can have their own restrictions on the length. So, 3″ 3.5″ long blade would be most likely legal in most of the places. Although I know San Francisco, LA, Oakland have 3″ blade length limit.

As for the particular brands, I can recommend Kershaw, Benchmade, and Spyderco. Very solid knives, good reputation and service from the makers.

For your budget you can get a very good folding knife.
Here’s bunch of folder reviews with photos and details – http://www.zknives.com/knives/folding/indexmk.shtml

I personally prefer Benchmades and Kershaws, good steel, good fit and finish. Spydercos look too weird to my taste, but they have their own dedicated fan base.

E.g. Benchmade 710 would be a very nice present. Axis lock, D2 or 154Cm steel, it’s a knife that is perfect for pocket carry. Except it’s 4″ long blade,so might be restricted in some areas. Price around 125$

Kershaw Shallots are very good knives. Come in different steels too. Models with top end steels like ZDP0189 and CPM-110V are ~80$ and more conventional, but still a good steel like Sandvik are ~50$. Those have 3.5″ long blades.

Benchmade 707 is just under 3″ and makes a very nice utility knife – http://www.zknives.com/knives/folding/benchmade/bm707.shtml

If you know what kind of folders( I mean looks) he likes, you’re settled, otherwise pick something you like, it’s your present after all.

Some of the places where to buy on the net – http://www.zknives.com/knives/links/buy.shtml

P.S. To the knifophobic crowd – majority of knife related crime is committed with kitchen knives, not with the folders people carry or expensive collectibles, and in stabbing wounds those kitchen knives are followed by screwdrivers. So, what now, you are going to dump all your kitchen knives along with the screwdrivers or ask your senator to ban both?

chum the troll cat asked What is the best brand for a pocket knife?

And got the following answer:

Unfortunately there is not a best brand of pocket knives just as there is no best knife steel.
It all depends on your requirements, your preference(s), designed use of the knife and man other factors.

If your question was about best quality and build, then obviously custom folders take the 1st place, and there are many custom knife makers that build very high quality knives.

From production knives, Chris Reeve, Benchmade, Spyderco, Kershaw, Microtech, they all have very good or good build quality. It also depends on the product class and materials used.

Some of those folders are reviewed here – http://zknives.com/knives/folding/index.shtml if you want the specifics.

In the end, pocket knives have rather limited use, but still they can be used for many tasks, so if you narrow down what do you expect from your knife it’ll be easier to pick better fit.
