Even if you’ve never carried a knife with you every day, the Skyline just may convert you. Why? It’s so lightweight, slim, and comfortable to carry that it takes away any excuse for not having the right answer when someone asks, “hey, has anybody got a knife?” With the manual opening Skyline, you’ll always have the blade you need for everything from opening packages to slicing snacks. The drop-point blade is versatile and offers good balance and a strong tip. The high-performance Sandvik 14C28N blade comes razor sharp and offers high wear and corrosion resistance. The profile of the Skyline is extra thin and it weighs in at just over two ounces making the Skyline a great choice for comfortable and discrete carry. The textured handle scales are G-10, barely add to the Skyline’s weight, and provide for a secure grip. The handle design itself, with its deep index-finger contour, further enhances the Skyline’s very secure grip. The Skyline opens manually with a built-in flipper. Just pull back on the flipper and add a slight wrist roll for quick and easy opening with left or right hand. A liner lock keeps the blade locked open for secure use.
One of Kershaw's most popular knives, the Skyline pocketknife is ideal for around-town use. The super-slim Skyline features a 3-1/8-inch blade made of Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel, chosen for its hardness, excellent corrosion resistance, and ability to be sharpened to a perfect Kershaw shaving-sharp edge. The blade's good looks stem from its attractive stonewashed bead-blast finish. The knife also includes a textured G-10 handle in basic black that provides a secure grip, along with a sturdy locking liner that keeps the blade safely in place until you release it. And the knife's Flipper opens easily with the index finger of either hand (NOT an assisted-opening knife). The Skyline comes with a removable pocket clip that can be reversed for tip-up or tip-down carry. NOTE:For consumers to change the clip they must use a “Torx” screwdriver.

I put a few drops of "Break Free CLP" in the Skyline & now it just flies open (& closed) - lighting fast (same as the Chill) - so warning, keep your fingers clear at all times.
I love the ergonomics on both & both are super light, however, neither one has any "jimping" for the thumb to rest on when deployed. Also, because both blades are a little over 3 inches - idk if I'll be able to carry them in public. If I'm being picky, I'm not sure if I'm all that sold on either pocket clips. The Skyline clip is fatter and neither one really allows for a really deep carry that I prefer - like the Cryo - which rides low that all you see is the clip & no handle.
As for the Chill's clip - it is sort of in the way when deployed (in the tip down factory setting) - but I think that can be solved by moving it to tip up carry position (and I'll just deal w/a little extra bit of handle showing - no biggie).
The Chill is probably one that I'll just play w/around the house & not really use. I prefer to use & abuse my $5 el cheapos & keep the nicer ones unused so the blade remains pristine. The Skyline is clearly a very handsome looking knife & very well designed. You can tell they really put some effort into this one.
I don't have 50 million pocket knives - but I can tell it's a quality knife & feels like it should be more expensive. IMHO, I think they could have made the handle width a bit slimmer & the blade a bit smaller - for legal carry (although I am not sure where they measure - do they measure the sharpened cutting surface - or the entire length of the blade???).
The handle width of the "Leek", for example, is extremely slim (at about 5/16th of an inch - just a hair slimmer than the Chill). The handle width of the Skyline is a bit fatter (at about 6/16th of an inch).
Some excellent, in-depth reviews here.
I'll try to keep mine short, and to the point.
If you're used to a quality blade, you'll be happy with this one.
If you're used to $10 knives, you'll be amazed at the difference.
I needed this for a "work-horse" of an EDC, which will get some actual use, and abuse.
As such, I wanted to keep the price down, but the quality reasonably good.
Bingo. Found it.
EXCELLENT steel. Trim and light carry. Lawful but FAST one-handed deployment.
"Fit and Finish" is just outstanding for such a humble little utility tool.
Rub your hand along the back of the blade. The edges are totally smoothed and rounded.
Go around the whole exterior of the knife. Same thing. Every exposed edge is FINISHED in some way.
Rounded, smoothed, the edges of the scales are beveled, even the edges of the protruding "Flipper" mechanism,
and the steel edges of the pocket clip are rounded smooth and polished.
Note: This isn't my only Kershaw (yeah, I'm another "knife guy" I guess.) This is typical of their quality.
I guess you could say I'm a fan.
Say what you like about resin-based materials.. G10 scales are great for this application.
They are light, strong, and just feel REALLY good when you grab 'em hard, like you mean it.
The handle includes a wonderful detent for the index finger, that affords me a "full-sized" fist grip on the blade, very secure, which is a big suprise for a knife this size. May I call that a full-sized grip from a "medium" sized knife, if you know what I mean.
Moreover, the blade profile is great for me. Robust belly, hollow-grind, and carton-slitting drop-point.
The blade will be good for cutting and slicing, BAD for prying.
I'm also very fond of the bead-blast finish. The blade length is substantial enough to make this a good, solid tool, without generating gasps of fear and horror from by-standers.
This is a very suprising knife at this price.
Couple of suggestions:
You might want to reverse the clip for tip-up carry so the blade will deploy correctly.
Faster / more comfortable that way, but the knife will protrude a bit more with the clip reversed.
You might want to remove the pocket clip altogether (my choice) to maximize this knife's slim, sleek profile, and lighten it a bit more. Think about it. Do you really NEED / use a pocket clip? Up to you, but try it. You can always re-install it.
If you want to keep / use the clip, then do yourself a favor and take a dremmel and lightly sand off the texturing under and around the clip. The G10 texture is very aggressive and the clip is strong, together they will quickly errode any cloth you clip it too in no time. Denim included.
At this price, you really can not go wrong with this little guy.
Yes, there are a lot of really great folders out there.
Frankly, I can afford any knife I want. For this specific use, my choice is this humble Kershaw Skyline.
And an excellent choice it is.
Just to be clear, the knife I purchase a few years ago (from Amazon) reads "Made in USA" on the blade itself. I am not 100% sure if now all Skylines are made in China now or just a few of them, and if so, which ones? I am willing to bet that even though the packaging may say "USA Made", if it does not read "Made in USA" on the blade, it was made in China.
