Kershaw Skyline Folding Knife Review

The Kershaw Skyline 1760 is an excellent knife for every day carry. The first thing you notice is how solid it feels in your hand despite the slim and lightweight design of the knife. The grip on the handle is secure and the blade opens with ease with only one hand. In addition, the Skyline is manufactured in the US with quality materials and with an excellent finish. Overall, a great value for the price.

The blade material is Sandvik 14C28 a stainless steel with a stone-washed finish that has a good retention of the edge. The blade is sharp thanks to its deep hollow grind. The resistance to rust without being outstanding is good enough for a knife of this price and edge retention capacity.

The knife features a flipper opening system that allows a fast deploying of the blade with only one hand. With a firm pull of your index finger on the blade protrusion, the knife opens smoothly and locks securely into position.

The handle is made of textured G-10, a material similar to fiberglass that is extremely durable and hard, but at the same time very light. A good thing about G-10 handles, besides the secure grip, is that it does no€™t become cold in winter or hot in summer like more conventional aluminum or stainless steel handles. The Skyline design features an index finger groove to further secure the grip.

In addition the Skyline features a locking liner to keep the blade in open position, a welcome safety measure. And a removable and reversible pocket clip to fasten the knife to your pants.

On the whole, the Kershaw Skyline is a recommendable knife for every day carry: lightweight, high quality, ergonomic handle, a serviceable blade and all that at a very reasonable price.
