Kershaw and Rick Hinderer have teamed up to bring you a smaller pocketknife with plenty of style, the Kershaw Ember. The first thing you'll notice, of course, is the Ember's size. The blade is just two Inch long and, when closed, the knife is a compact 2.8 Inch. But the next thing you'll notice is the Ember's striking looks. Angles, contours, matte-grey coating and black hardware give it a tactical look-and-feel that we think knife users will really warm up to. For easy opening, the Ember features SpeedSafe assisted opening and a handy, built-in flipper. The modified clip-point blade has an ergonomic top curve, which gives the user a convenient place to position an index finger when guiding the knife's edge in a close-cutting situation. A sturdy frame lock secures the blade in position for safe use. The blade is heat treated to Kershaw's demanding specifications to bring out the very best qualities in the steel. Titanium carbo-nitride coating on both blade and handle give the Ember a matte grey finish. Black hardware, including the three-position pocketclip, enhances this little knife's look. Easy to carry in pocket, briefcase, or backpack, the Ember from Kershaw and Rick Hinderer packs a lot of style into a small package.

It is ultra-concealable, and fits really well in my palm. I get about 3 fingers on it, and it does feel secure in the hand.
The flipper feels very secure, and very positively snaps open. I purchased a second knife, and it's flipper did feel a little less robust, but still usable.
The knife comes with the clip installed so the knife tip points down, which feels like exactly the opposite of what you'd want. When you pull the knife out of our pocket you'll need to turn it 180 degrees to open it. You can change this, which I did, so that the point points up in the pocket. Now when I pull the knife out, it is already in position to be flipped open. You will need a very small star-shaped wrench to remove the clip, though.
The knife seems like a decent deal at $20, but I don't think I'd pay $25 for it.
Unfortunately I can't give it more stars than this. After keeping it in my pocket for one day without using the knife I noticed what I thought was that fingernail scrapings that get on the back of the blade every once in a while. I tried to wipe it off to no avail. I scratched at it and found that it was a clear coating on the knife that seems to be scraping off. I'd expect more from a brand new knife.
Overall, though, I love the size and am excited to carry this around. Time will tell, but I assume this coating coming off will lessen the life of the blade.
The blade: Holds a good edge for a decent amount of time, and is capable of being sharpened to the point where you can shave with it
The clip: a perfect standard kershaw deep carry clip that I personally love
The handle: very sturdy all metal construction, with good weight, letting you know it's high quality. It also has gimping where it's needed, and nowhere it's not.
My complaints: as the other reviewers said, the blade touches and rubs the inside of the handle when folded, causing a little of the coating to be worn off. Although this was a big deal for other people, it wasn't for me, and I still find this a small and perfect E.D.C. option.
