I am fairly new to higher end folders but own two Kershaws, a serrated blade Clash and a serrated blade Blur.
For the money the Clash it seems a sturdy well constructed folder. These are the spec right from Amazon where I bought it:
Steel: 8Cr13MoV, Black oxide coating
Partial two step serration
Handle: Glass-filled nylon
Blade Length: 3 1/8 inches
Closed Length: 3 7/8 inches
Weight: 3.4 ounces
Tip up or tip down pocket clip
Speed safe and flipper opening systems
Liner lock locking system
I'd say my favorite feature is the flipper opener. One firm pull and the blade jumps out with a satisfying thwack - no wrist motion required. There is no thumbstud but you can pull the blade out manually if required.
I think the screws holding the clip on are t8's. I ordered a t8 wrench so I can move the clip and try carrying it tip up. That way my finger will be on the flipper when the knife comes out of my pocket.
There is a nice contour for the index finger to wria around, and some contour for the other fingers. This is needed because the handle is pretty smooth. If this knife gets wet it's gonna be hard to grip well.
I usually carry this knife to work but I don't have much opportunity to give it a work out so I cannot comment on how it holds it's edge. But it was sharp out of the box.
