Bought my first Kershaw
Wally world has a clearance on knives and among them were one or two Kershaw Blackout models -- I went back and bought one today after thinking it over. $29 is probably not the greatest price on the planet but around here it's pretty good and there's no added shipping of course. I haven't seen a Kershaw with the safe-assist for less, myself, and some of them are a lot more.
Anyway, it is a quality blade, very sharp (no serrations on mine as per my preference). The Blackout model does have the safe-assist opening feature which is near switchblade performance, very fast and one-hand operation to open and close. It's only about a half inch shorter than my Cold Steel Voyager though it appears about half the size, very compact for the amount of cutting edge you get. Also it has the advantage over the Voyager of being made in the USA. I'm a leftie so the first thing I did was reverse the thumb stud, and that worked out fine, to my relief. It also has a more secure pocket clip than the Voyager and it's removable.
All in all, I'm pleased; it is going to be one of my prime carry blades. I'm reminded again that, as with most things, with experience you learn to appreciate better and better quality products. I look at some of my old knives and laugh now.
