Kershaw Clash #1605 Knife Review

Kershaw began its foray into the knife business sometime during 1974. The company was originally based in Portland Oregon, but most early knives were manufactured in Japan. The first US manufacturing plant was opened in 1997 & the company currently offers knives made in the U.S., Japan, & China. Pete Kershaw (an ex Gerber salesman) started the business.

Sheesh Bob, I never saw your questions.....sorry.

Uhhhhh.....the Kershawl Leek busted me into AO's a few years ago and I guess that's what started my steel journey!!
I'm a fan of the linerlocking system, primarily because my thumb is used to the closing action.
Oh, for $25.00, it's definitely an import.
Huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge fan of "tip-up"! You had to pick that up in the review!!

OK Scott, after eight months I finally found one of these at a price that suits my Scottish sensibilities. ($15!!!)
Gonna carry it for a while and beat the crap out of it. I'm expecting great things based solely on Kershaws' excellent reputation and your recommendation. :mrgreen:

no pressure.... :)
