-easy to sharpen
-exceptionally durable (I've dropped it countless times on theh ground)
-super fast deployment
-size and helft
-Ken Onion style blade
-flipper takes some effort to deploy blade. My finger was a bit sore for a while until i got used to it, now I don't even notice. I'VE GOT THE STRONGEST INDEX FINGER IN THE WORLD!!!
The Clash has a useful finger grip cut-out; the Emerson has a longer, grippier handle.
If you have an Emerson for edc, you might want a Clash for actual chores, to keep the wear off the Emerson. If you get attacked by a small, angry unarmed Middle Earth dwarf, you should be safe with either. Should be, but given the testy nature of Middle Earth dwarfs, no guarantees.
The Clash has tip up or tip down carry holes, BUT only on the palm side (right hand grip) of the handle.
Metal liners on both sides of the handle on the Clash (as on the CQC-7).
Unlike the extremely grippy G10 on the Emerson, the Clash uses smooth (not aggressively diamond-patterned) plastic handles; the mostly-cosmetic ridges on the Clash don't really improve the grip of its smooth, non-gritty plastic.
The assisted-opener on the Clash, which has typical Kershaw speed, is such a parlor trick the average guy could spend hours just playing with it while watching TV. In case you haven't tried one, after a medium amount of pressure on the rear flipper (present on this model) or on a thumb stud (not present on this model), once you are past the detent the blade flies open like the dickens. Snazzy!
The Clash uses fasteners rather than rivets or glue to hold the assembly together. My Torqx set worked fine on them.
Cosmetically the Clash is perfectly finished and assembled. The flipper is a little "pointy" on the finger but that's the nature of a lower-profile flipper.Read more ›
I have a very large collection of all makes and of course some are made in USA, some in China, Some in Germany, Some in Japan and etc, and naturally each is different as far as construction, materials, types of steel and etc.....
Many explore my collection and ask questions. EVERYBODY is stunned when you show them a super expensive 'high quality' knife and a super cheap China Knife (assuming they are legit makers, which kershaw is and not the cheapo china JUNK you find at flea markets that cost a dollar but are sold for $5-$20......Why do people buy obvious JUNK not even worth $1 at flee markets, ebay & etc when they can get a HIGH QUALITY blade such as this for the same $'s??) and after playing with them and hearing the prices for each, people are stunned at how great the quality is on the cheaper china versions and most everybody says they'd take the cheaper china versions over their more expensive counterparts. Now, let me make this clear. Nobody is knocking the more expensive blades. They love them, as do I...But for the money, its hard to beat this quality for such a low price.
The clash is another fine example. Only $19 but it screams 'high quality'. Razor sharp and I mean Razor sharp. No blade play at all. Opens easily and with a very authoritative snap.Read more ›

This is an awesome knife. Nothing bad to say here. I have had this knife over 2 years, and it continues to hold up with a minimum amount of slop. Read morePublished 23 days ago by tyler
Sturdy, thick, sharp, and reliable clip. Not all Kershaws are built equal, but if you don't mind having a bigger fold out knife, I think this will make you happy. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Eddie
