Product Description

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.

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.

You just can't go wrong with a Kershaw.
Ted M.
Knife is easy to open by one hand but before a couple drops of oil can help to smooth flip action .

Knife came very sharp and the blade locks up well.

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 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.

I bought this knife for a couple resaons. Im sick of tactical black knives so the red was cool. It's a knife that you really don't see out there with its shape and style. It came sharp out of the box and all I've had to do after use it hone it and it is back to shave sharp. I have a variety of Kershaw knives invcluding the Drone, OSO sweet, Hawk etc. This was just different, so for the price it is definately worth it. People complain about this steel rusting. I have never had a problem, But Im a knife nut and everything stays well cleaned and oiled. Even when I neglect a bit after a wet environment I still havent't had a ny problems. I actually love 8c13mov. For kershaw to upgrade from aus8 and keep good price points, thats a big Kudo's to them for sure. Yep, made in china but what isnt? Kai corporation is definately on top of quality control. Great lock up and centering, Quick deployment, and feels good in the hand, and has full steel liners throughout the hadle. It does have some jimping on the handle that I may modify to deepen but it does work when pressure is applied. The only thing I don't like is the nylon washers. Atleast I think they are, as i have not taken it apart yet. I prefer Bronze as they allow the knife to deploy much faster with drop of oil. I definately recomend and I will be getting the full ton.

Update: After further review the knife is still awesome but they used Nylon bushings instead of bronze which slows deployment and will wear faster. I don't understand why they did that with this knife when they used bronze on others with same price point. Had to knock a star off. Hopefully they make a change.
