Kershaw 1830 OSO Sweet Speedsafe Folding Knife features an assisted opening blade that is made of 8CR13MOV (satin finished) stainless steel. This is not only a great blade that the Kershaw OSO Sweet Speedsafe knife offers, it will hold tough but also will help resist corrosion and wear on the blade. The lever that is on the spine of the knife will allow the fine edge blade to come out easily and quickly. The handle is a textured glass-filled nylon and will give you a secure grip even in wet conditions. A reversible pocket clip will make this knife an all around great knife for anyone!

Great Pocket Knife...
This is a great little all purpose pocket knife. You can't beat it for the money. The open assist mechanism functions with ease. Good steel on the blade and keeps an edge. The handle has a textured webbed pattern made out of nylon for durability and a sure grip.
I removed the pocket clip by backing out the screws, The knife has a slim enough profile that it carries very easily in your front pocket. I've done this with other Kershaw pocket knives. I love the option of being able to remove the pocket clip if I want to.
I collect good pocket knives. I love Kershaw's open assist knives. As well or better made than any high end automatic knives I've had. And just as fast also. I think I prefer a well made open assist knife over a fully automatic knife. For day in and day out, year after year use, I don't think you can beat a Kershaw open assist pocket knife.
All in all, a wonderful and very functional knife.

The Kershaw brand name has been one the reasons for keeping one of these 1830 and 1620 model knives in my pocket. I always get the blade engraved with my initials. Now if I could just remember where I leave one after putting it down. I always keep a spare available at all times. It is a great utility knife. I have ran these knives thru the washing machine a couple of times which did at one time break the tip of one of the blades when the tip got caught in one of the washing machine basket strainer holes. But I will keep using them.
