1) Very light. At 2.3 Oz this is probably the lightest folder with 3 1/8" blade. It's the single most important feature for me who wear slacks instead of jeans at work.
2) Slim profile. Without the clip it's only 3/8", and with clip it's a little over 1/2". It doesn't create a visible bulge.
3) G10 scales. G10 is a modern fiberglass that's both very light and tough it's practically indestructible. The particular scales here have non-slip surface that feels like coarse fabric, good to keep the knife in your hand when wet.
4) Flipper. With little practice you can very quickly deploy the blade with just your index finger. The flipper also serves as finger guard preventing the blade from accidentally closing on you.
5) Liner lock. It obviously keeps the blade in open position (very solid), but a bump on the lock also mates with a hole on the blade to keep it closed. You have to apply a little extra pressure to open the blade, but it's good because it prevents accidental opening.
6) Finger groove. Deep index finger groove gives positive grip that prevents slippage. It makes the knife safer to handle.
7) Reversible & removable pocket clip. You can position the clip so the tip points up or down in your pocket, although it's on the right-hand side only. I removed mine because I don't need it.
8) Conventional drop-point blade. This is a versatile design that gives a good balance for many purposes. It's good for cutting and slicing without having too weak of a tip.
9) Decent steel. In the past Kershaw used 13C26 stainless steel by Sandvik (sweden), which has a reputation to rust but otherwise has good edge retention properties.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
