I have the titanium tyrade,I recieved it 2 weeks ago and it is quickly becoming my favorite for edc.The fit and finish and the operation of the tyrade is flawless.I have another kershaw,the offset,and after owning that for a while I knew what to expect from another kershaw.It is very comfortable to hold and much lighter than I expected.The assisted open is not as quick as I want but I feel that is just a matter of breaking it in.The frame lock is incredible once open it is like a fixed blade,I have total confidence in the tyrade even after only 2 weeks of ownership.All I can say is great job by kershaw!!!!!

I received my tan G-10 Tyrade yesterday and have been playing around with it ever since. I have not used it for any intensive cutting tasks, just the usual sharpness tests, like cutting paper. This thing is a beast! The hybrid blade (bead blasted in my case) is remarkably stout and rigid, and the liner lock is so thick and locks up so strongly that I can't see any meaningful difference between it and the frame locks used on the titanium Tyrade or its Zero Tolerance counterparts. I really like the Ken Onion Speed Safe design. The blade deploys fast given its size, and the flipper (which I was originally hesitant about) provides a nice hilt/choil to prevent your hand moving forward). In this case, because the blade and liner are so thick and stout, the deployment feels like closing the door on a Mercedes - reassuringly solid, with a resounding "THWACK" (OK, I guess the sound isn't exactly Benz-like)! Because the blade is so heavy, the spring tension carries it all the way open once it is pushed away from the handle at all. Realistically this knife is too large and heavy for everyday use, at least for me. For that I will continue to carry my Kershaw/Ken Onion Leek. This would be a great folder for outdoor excursions, as it is as solid as many a fixed blade, and I may use it for that. I may just continue to play with it and enjoy it as a piece of working art, however. I downgraded it a bit on ergonomics because I'd like to see some jimping where the blade meets the handle, and I find the bulge between my middle and ring fingers a little odd to grasp (I am splitting hairs a bit with that last point, because this thing feels great overall). Also, and this is not really Kershaw's fault, it's hard to close with one hand due to its size and the assisted-opening spring tension. I have an orange G10 model on the way, and might have to get a black one just to complete the collection. These G10 Tyrades are the best deal on the market IMO.

I am slowly becoming a fan of Kershaw knives, never owned one until recently, now have three with another enroute. Anyway,about the Tyrade, beautiful knife, well built, assited opening very smooth, and lock up is strong. I felt the edge could be a little sharper, but that is to everyones own taste. Very thick blade and heavy knife, but I like both in my folders that I use for heavy duty. Not sure how the two steels will work as to holding together, but I assume Kershaw did enough testing before they put it out there. Anyway great knife at a great price. Forgot to add ergonomics for me make it one of the most comfortable knives I have ever held. Go buy one!

I own a dozen or so knives and this one is my favorite. I have the limited-edition orange G-10 handled version. I love it. It feels solidly built and is not a lightweight knife. I like that about it. I would carry it more often but I like to keep it pristine looking. Very cool looking blade. This knife has the crispest opening action of any knife I have ever held. It is tough and rugged, from blade to handle and locking mechanism. This blade is probably too large for EDC for most folks. Nonetheless, the cool factor for this knife is off of the charts and it is a steal for the price. Kershaw hit a home run on this one.

After fooling with a crappy Military, I bought a Kershaw Tyrade today. My first impression is WOW! I've owned Kershaws from years past, and I can say they're quality, value and fit and finish is the best I've seen.

I got teh orange G-10 handled one with speed safe and the composite blade. The CPM D2 edge came sharp enough to shave, straight out of the box. It's a big knife, bigger than the Military, with a thicker and bigger blade. But I haven't even noticed it in my pocket. THe grip is perfect, and fits my hand perfectly. The speed safe if wonderful. It opens fast and easy, and locks up tighter than a high dollar hooker. The liner lock is thick and mates to the tang perfectly. There's a lot of room left there for wear.

For $75, this is the best deal around, bar none!

Do yourself a favor and don't waste your time on other brands. This has them all beat hands down. If all Kershaws are built like this one, I'll be buying them from now on.

Possibly one of the best,if not the best knife I've ever owned.The CPM D2 blade takes a wicked edge and will hold it.The G10 handles are grippy but not to grippy,just right.It fits the hand well.Very nice fit and finish.The liner lock locks up early with no blade play in either direction what so ever.Way to go Kershaw on a great knife.
