    Love my Kershaw. Kershaw's assisted openers fly open faster than automatics. Such a solid lock too. Love it.

    Do a review of it when it comes in! I'm about to buy the D2 version for EDC.

    I picked up the Benchmade Emissary about 3 months ago, and has been my EDC blade ever since. I have not found any faults with this blade, hair popping sharp right out of the box, and talk about quick to open, as fast as any auto, IMHO. Great aluminum handle fits the hand perfectly, very nice deep carry pocket clip. Also, for any safety sallys out here there is a lock for the blade, but is fast and easy to release. You can't go wrong with this blade. It is worth every penny MSRP of $170 but I got mine for $120.
