Often Mother Nature has a way of providing mankind with many things like sustenance, breath-taking mountain vistas after a long trek into the wilderness or in the case of the Kershaw® OSO Sweet: a fantasic idea for a folding knife. Upon closer examination of the lightweight palm-friendly glass reinforced nylon handle scales, you'll notice that they have a distinct scale texture that aids in retention while you're out on the river catching fish and cutting line. Oso, which is the Spanish word for bear, is a fitting metaphor for the performance this knife exudes with its fully heat-treated 8Cr13Mov blade that can handle anything life outside the house can throw at you. The SpeedSafe® opening technology snaps the blade to attention with just a flick of the flipper extension that won't snag on articles of clothing like a thumb stud tends to from time to time. A contoured pocket clip that can be adjusted for tip up/down carrying styles keeps the knife comfortably seated in your pocket to the point you'll have a harder time remembering its there than where you've last left it. Yeah, this knife is sweet...
