Product Description

Don't underestimate this small-in-stature knife--the short, chubby blade works on and on. Glass-reinforced nylon handles with super-grippy Santoprene inserts make your hold on the Half Ton firm and secure, a locking liner adds safety to the open blade, and the steel features a satin finish that makes it shiny but tough as nails. Kershaw completes the package with a patented Wrench Clip, a pocket clip shaped like a mini-wrench. Easy open with the thumb stud rounds out the package.

  • Stainless steel pocket knife; small but durable

Specifications:

  • Steel: Stainless steel with satin finish
  • Handle: Glass-filled nylon, Santoprene inserts

Product Description

The Kershaw Half Ton knife has a 2.5 inch blade made of 8CR13MOV stainless steel that is opened with ambidextrous thumb studs and held in place with a liner lock. The handle is made of glass reinforced nylon with black Santoprene inlays on each side. A cool looking pocket clip is mounted on the pivot end of the knife for easy carrying. What we think you will find so nice about the Kershaw Half Ton is that the price does indeed seem to be about half while having a TON of quality.

The blade is solid and comes with a very sharp edge from the factory.

Knife is easy to open by one hand but before a couple drops of oil can help to smooth flip action .

I like a knife that I can really feel in my hand, not something really tiny.

I absolutely love this knife, and at only 15 bucks? Wow! This is easily one of the best value knifes out there.

Pros:
Sized perfectly for every day carry
Smooth opening blade
Thick blade and extremely durable
Good looking
8Cr13MoV steel
Factory sharp
Colorful (hard to lose)
Secure pocket clip
Functional jimping on the handle (best jimping on plastic I've felt)
Heavy duty feel
Price
Easy to use and open
Solid lockup of blade
Relatively low maintenance

Cons:
Blade has no protective coating so it can rust easily
Pocket clip cannot be adjusted
Concave blade style is unnecessary on a blade that wide and small
Point is extremely dull (and not for stabbing at all)
Hard to resharpen

This knife is literally one of the best sized EDC knifes I've ever seen, If Kershaw used a standard flat ground blade, then the blade would be nearly perfect.

Good, stout knife for the money. Mine came with a factory edge that was pretty sharp but not polished. The clip which looks like a wrench is kind of different. The 8CR13MOV steel used in the blade has gotten plenty of favorable comments on knife forums.

For the price asked, under $14, this knife is practically disposable. It also ships for free with Amazon Prime. The blade steel is a good quality, the grip is secure, and the red color makes it hard to lose. The clip is secure, and does not interfere with my grip. The blade is thick and stout, and can handle a fair amount of abuse.

I have one I carry every day, and one in each of my cars' emergency kits, as well as a spare.

You CAN find a better knife, no doubt, but at a significantly higher price.

Update 5/22/12: Knife broke on me today while trying to cut a zip tie. Downward pressure on the knife blade caused the pin that stops the blade from opening too far to dislodge. Can't find it. Knife is in the trash. Now using my Kershaw Blur for everything - a fantastic knife.

**

Pros: Sharp, sturdy, inexpensive and a good value.

Cons: Not designed for reliable one handed opening (see Youtube video recommendations below), it's large for a "small" knife and the Chinese 8CR13MOV steel blade dents on the cutting edge quite easily.

Summary: If reliable one handed deployment is important - look elsewhere. If you want an inexpensive utility knife, this is a good value. However, all Kershaws are good values so don't be surprised that a $13 Kershaw is not up to the standards of a $30 or $50 Kershaw.

**

Deployment: you must flick the thumb-stud of this knife with the nail side of your thumb to open one handed. This has no where near the speed or one handed opening reliability of the speed safe assisted opening Kershaws in the $30-$50 range.

It comes with plastic bushings (washers). Mine were deformed making the knife difficult to open and causing the blade to sit off-center in the closed position. I replaced these with #8 brass washers - as you would find in more expensive knivess (IMPERIAL 276052 BRASS FLAT WASHER #8). I also loosened the pivot-point torx screw to relieve pressure and used a dry-lube. It's better but still requires the nail side of the thumb and it still fails to deploy fully about 5% of the time.

I bought three of these knives...one for my EDC, the other two as gifts. I really enjoy carrying this blade as it is wide, light weight, very sharp, and locks up very tight with no wiggle. I've yet to sharpen it since it holds an edge so well despite cutting a wide variety of material.

The only problem I have with this so far is the clip. Two weeks after I'd begun carrying my Half Ton the clip began to wiggle and by the next day I was missing two of the three screws in it. I got out one of the gift knives to begin carrying (I figured I'd better make sure it was going to hold together before I gave it out). In short order that clip worked loose and had lost a single screw. When I contacted Kershaw about this, I was told they don't carry replacement screws and that I would have to send them in. I was under the impression that they would loctite the new screws in. No, they didn't. Again, after getting them back (in a timely manner) and carrying it for a week or so, I have a Kershaw that is ready to lose its clip.

Since I've caught this problem in time, my remedy will be to pick up a tiny little Torx driver set and some loctite and set those screws myself. Just be prepared for a little maintenance work if you purchase one of these knives.

I recently bought one for my wife for Christmas and I liked it s so much that I just ordered one.
This short stubby blade is good for slicing and slashing. Not the best knife for stabbing.

Construction: 8. Hard plastic handle, blade locks nicely into place with a loud click.

Blade: 7. Not the sharpest blade but gets the job done Wide blade small tip. I almost want to use it as a pry bar but that won't happen. Never use your knife to pry open anything.

Ergonomics: 9. The thing sits in my hand secure. I have large hands and it still feels comfortable. This thing is not moving anywhere.

Overall this knife was well worth the $12 or $13.
