Kershaw Skyline Blade
Blade of Kershaw Skyline – Sandvic 14C28N. This Swedish stainless steel, which is willing to put on the blades, many companies placing production on the territory of the United States. What causes this is not known, but the lion’s share of Sandvik made knives BUCK – the world’s leading blade industry.
Blade Form Kershaw Skyline leaf-shaped, with descents from almost butt. With good steel and this geometry it is not surprising that the knife has cut like a sword. The projection of the knife that opens to the unfolded form is used as a stop for the fingers. The pins on the blade are an optional feature – add stiffness of the whole structure in the unfolded form. Open is not very convenient for them – usually all enjoy flip.
Lock system is a simple and well-known liner. At the plate, in the place where the finger rests, has a notch. It is not urgent, but copes with its task quite well.
Lock type Liner, no complaints. Blade locks tightly but not so tight. Conveniently, both open and closed with one hand.
Handle Kershaw Skyline cut from the plates fixed on the G10 and steel liners. Handle pleasantly rough and does not slip under any circumstances. There is a hole for lanyard. The clip from the knife wide, reliable, and very tenacious. There are two options Kershaw Skyline clips suspension.
This design makes the knife easier to handle – thinner, but I can not say that it is inconvenient. In my palm medium-sized knife is fine, but thanks to good abutment finger, knife work – a pleasure.
The clip from the knife pretty tough, you can wear the knife on your belt or pocket holes are provided for the rotation of the clip “upside down”, but, in my opinion, it is more convenient to staffing arrangement. In the clip is engraved with the manufacturer’s logo.
Knife Kershaw Skyline – it is knife Fliper. This means that the knife is opened by muscular effort – a nod wrist and starts the movement of the index finger, Kershaw Skyline opens the pressure of the index finger on the fin, which is referred to as a flip. One gets the knife as well as all the usual knives liner Locks.

Kershaw Skyline have excellent pedigree and the highest quality workmanship. It is recommended to purchase all without exception.
