A Few New Kershaws for tha' pile****

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.

You did well, big monk...those are some fine knives, indeed. Now that you've been bitten by the Kershaw bug, the sky's the limit...so many models...such reasonable prices...and with that SpeedSafe, they're so much fun to open...once you get started it's hard to quit. I used to sit in front of the TV opening & closing, opening & closing, opening & closing, etc. for hours...the constant flipping & clicking drove my wife so crazy she went out and bought herself a TV so she could watch in another room.

Ya see, Monkey Man. I tole ya the bug was still there. Maybe dormant but there none the less. Excellent choices each and every one of them, even the Ganzo. By the by, what's the pattern on that Ganzo? I really like the profile of the blade and maybe I can find one that's not a Tanto.

Take a peek in the Leek thread ( viewtopic.php?f=92&t=50248&p=662018#p662018 ) to see today's addition to the pile.

So far, I've had good luck with FastTech. They're about $4 cheaper and for coming from Asia, the shipping is free and pretty fast. You suckered me into ordering a Ganzo 7562 and a 7511.
