I love Kershaw folders. At their price if one gets dull or misplaced, I just buy another. I’m partial to the Volt model.

Something to note: Kershaw also offers lifetime resharpening for every knife they sell. Send it back to them on your dime, they will sharpen to original and return them to you on their dime

That’s good to know. Out of the box this is one of the, if not the sharpest knife I’ve ever purchased. I’ve been moving for 4 days so it has been getting a work out on taped up boxes.

I will get you a link to their warranty page when I get to the office. They will also do blade replacements for any of their knives for $10 flat rate.

I have one spring assist knife with a broken tip that I need to send back for warranty repair as the spring assist stopped working. I have reground the tip and have been using it for a few years that way. It has been great even with the broken tip. I almost don't want to get the blade replaced.

And yes, they are very sharp out of the box. They hold their edge very well for a $20 knife. I have sent a few of mine back for resharpening in the past and they come back sharpened like new.

Well, due to the continuing inefficiency of the Post Office, and their rate increases, the "ship back on their dime" era seems to have come to an unfortunate end. They now charge $7 return postage.

Here is the link to the full warranty page. Blade replacements are still only $10.

Cool thread. My pocket knife is a Kershaw CQC-6K I've been carrying it since sometime in mid 2016 I think. I actually won it (and the E Trainer) in a giveaway. At the time I worked in a warehouse and used it for cutting cardboard before mounting tires and wheels everyday. I now work in a slightly different environment, but still use it for cutting boxes, string, tubing, whatever. It's a tool that works for mundane tasks and defense if needed. In fact using the wave for mundane tasks is a good way to become even more familiar with a defense tool. Mine needs some sharpening I think, but it's never rusted on me, broken, or come loose. Love it.

It's cheap enough that if I lose it, break it, have it confiscated, or need to toss it, it gets magnetized or some other crazy thing I can always grab another one cheap. The Emerson wave feature means that it's legal for me to carry even in places with laws about automatic knives, and at this point I can open it really consistently, faster than I ever could an assisted folder with thumb stud. I don't care enough about customizing it to change out the thumb disk, G10, or grips but I know some people enjoy that.

Another awesome benefit, is that I have a trainer blade that is nearly identical. So I can practice the wave opening into various grips without worrying about getting cut. Or, if I get the chance to practice weapons based entanglement or grappling I can do that with a trainer that is exactly the same as what I carry everyday.

I can't recommend the Kershaw's with Emerson wave enough.
