    I received this Kershaw as a gift and it works well with light shorts and our 10 months of summer.

    They have bit replacement kits available. I've been carrying a wave for 15 years, replaced the bits twice in that time.

    I tried to do a bit of research on it on some knife forums, and my god did this knife cause some controversy. All the way to the point someone got Crucible to admit they do export S35vn steel to China. The common consensus was that this knife was made by CH Knives, which makes another popular budget s35vn folder, the CH 3504. They could very well be one of the Chinese manufacturers contracted by Kershaw.

    Like many others, I used to look down at most knives coming out of China, but the last few years has seen a remarkable emergence of VERY high-quality knives from them. Companies like Kizer, Reate, Carson Tech, Stedemon, and others are turning out some seriously nice product at a very fair price. Made in modern workshops using CAD/CAM technology, super-premium blade steels (CPM S35V seems to be the current favorite), 3D-machined titanium handles (many nicely anodized). Nice stuff indeed !

    My Chinese made Boker Plus Gent is an excellent EDC. It's not the country where a product is made. It's the company making the product.

    And there some off brand knives coming out of China that are quite impressive.

    I have two Eafengrow branded knives from Amazon. One is an obvious knockoff of my Spyderco UKPK and one is an older school, woodworker type knife.

    If the Spyderco knockoff had brass or copper bushings like the real one and a slightly different break angle of the clip, I'd like it equally as my Spyderco.

    I think I'll grab one of those LA Police gear jobbies though it's a bit larger than I prefer.
