Kershaw is famous for making affordable folders with outstanding craftsmanship and top-notch technology. And our latest Badass Knife of the Week is the perfect example of this.
The Kershaw Oso Sweet is an exceptional everyday carry that proves you can get a well-made knife by one of the top-rated knife brands around without selling a kidney. That’s why it’s no surprise this oh so sweet (get it?) pocket knife from Kershaw is among the brand’s best-selling.
Its qualification as an EDC starts with the knife’s speed. With a gentle pull of the ambidextrous flipper mechanism, the blade shoots to life using Kershaw’s patented SpeedSafe assisted opening.
Here is a pretty good overview of the knife from JDubKnives on YouTube:
The blade itself is 3.1 inches with a drop point profile, which excels at a wide range of daily tasks. Its satin-finished 8Cr13MoV stainless steel offers a more than adequate performance with qualities like strength, edge retention, hardness, and wear resistance.
The functionality of the Oso Sweet extends down into the durable handle made from glass-filled nylon. Its scales incorporate a textured pattern that not only gives the knife a reptilian look but provides a solid grip in all types of conditions.
A one-sided pocket clip can be adjusted for a tip-up or tip-down carry, depending on your preferences, and a lanyard hole near the butt of the knife gives you more options for customization.
Once you get a hold of this knife, you’ll realize why it’s so popular.
