Kershaw Ken Onion 1550ST

Evolution of a Perfect Carry Knife.

Short of a switchblade, this is about as fast as a one handed opener available with the speed assisted opening.

While the handle is more ergonomic than knives of the past, it still could be improved.

The knife strictly on appearance would probably fall into the tactical category but with its relatively light duty construction, it does not transfer any confidence as a fighter. Truly it does serve as a convenient pocket knife that can be rapidly deployed one handed much like a box cutter.

It’s not an everyday carry. Why? It’s politically incorrect having a serrated edge, being all scary black, and having a fast opening action.  However I will carry it on evening walks.
