Some people think the name for this knife needs a little work, but Kershaw® named this knife the Needs Work because it needs you to put it to work. The Needs Work is simply a bang-up solid work knife. The straight edged sheepsfoot style blade offers solid contact with the material being cut and makes nice, crisp slices in just about anything you want to cut. Since the full width of the spine comes almost to the point, the blade punches well and is good and strong. The Needs Work blade steel is Sandvik 14C28N. This stainless steel was developed in an exclusive partnership between Kershaw® and Sandvik Steel®. It offers excellent corrosion resistance, hardness, edge retention, and is an all-around top performer. It comes razor sharp out of the box and resharpens well. In addition, when you're working, you don't always have both hans free which is where the SpeedSafe® assisted opening technology takes over, making the blade ready for use at a moment's notice. The handle is designed to hang onto with a unique texturing and handle geometry that can only be simplfied by saying "What an outstanding job!". So what's the hold up? Get to work!
