Kershaws,came in the mail today !!!

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.

What a coincidence, Monkey Man. I have one of those Ganzo 7511s on it's way to me. Let me know what you think of it.

Will do my friend !!!! ::tu:: ___ I feel like I will be pleased,as I really like the "'Speed-Safe"" opening feature of the Kershaw knives*__ some of the knives with thumb studs & axis lock, give this old man a fit, trying to ""flip-open !!!! ::shrug:: the Speed-Safe opener is one reason I got that 7511 :) ____ that and it was ""CLEMSON ORANGE"""

I did get a surprise on the Blur & the Whirlwind ,as they are "spring assisted" only and I thought they had the "speed-safe" feature _____ but I found that both snap open,very, very easy with the thumb stud* :) and was happy** __________have a great day guys, Monk** ::tu::

They both snap open very, very easily because they are both built with the "SpeedSafe" feature. Marked on the Blur's handle and the Whirlwind's blade. It's right under "Kershaw". That should make you even happier.

I'm glad to find out the 7511 is assisted opening. I didn't know that. That's a bonus. Both of the Ganzo's I bought are "Clemson Orange". :lol: :lol:

Hmm - I have a Ganzo 7511 and it is not assisted. As far as I know, Ganzo doesn't make an assisted knife. I think what big monk meant is that he bought the 7511 because it is a flipper with a liner lock, not a thumb stud with an axis lock.

Well sugar booger. Don't that beat all. I just discovered I bought a Leek I already have and now I have to return it so I can get another color. Now you tell me that Ganzo is a flipper. I think I'm going to go back to bed and try and start this day over. ::disgust::

Just put the extra Leek in a drawer on the other side of the house. That way, you'll never see the two of them together and you'll keep thinking you only own one... ::tounge::
