My interest in knives is purely mechanical and you can hardly get a more mechanicaly interesting knife than the Kershaw E.T. Here are the spec's for the hard-core knife people: The model I have is the 1900 (model 1900SE has an edge that is partially serated). Steel: Sandvick 13C25 Stainless Steel with bead blasted finish. Handle: 6061 T6 Anodized Aluminum Blade Length: 3-1/4" Closed: 4-3/4" Weight: 3.7 ounces Pictures are worth a thousand words (click any image to view the full size image)... Knife closed, front view: Knife closed, rear view: Knife open, front view: Knife open, rear view: Close-Up of kife locking mechanism: Close-Up of carabiner clip/bottle opener: Close-Up of carabiner clip/bottle opener held open: Close-Up of pocket clip: Knife in partially open position: I have cut myself no less than 4 times with this knife (once through the band-aid of a previous injury). It's an easy thing to do, as this knife begs to be played with and the blade is as sharp as a razor... One of the most popular methods of opening this knife requires you to put your thumb in a dangerous location. Trust me, after a few shots of bourbon, you should not play with this knife... The following two pictures show just how close your thumb is in relation to the tip of the blade. There are very few gripping points available on this knife. This picture illustrates those points: This is what you get from Kershaw when you order this knife: It's interesting that they include a mini-CD that contains a video of how to properly use the knife (yes, it's that complicated). Fear not though, I'm sure any EDCF member can figure it out. It's a ton of fun, but be careful, that blade is SHARP (expect to blead a little)!!! Here is a picture showing how it might be carried on a belt loop: Here is a picture showing how it might be carried using the pocket clip (I prefer using the carabiner clip on a belt loop, as shown in the previous image): Here is the video that I made with my digital camera (no sound), it shows a few different options for opening the knife. There are other options, but I'm not a Mall Ninja (just a wanna-be Mall Ninja) . It may take a bit of time to load, it's a bit of a large file... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvT1khQ8z2k Any question, I'll be happy to try and answer. Thanks for looking, Dan PS. I found mine for about $54 (pluss shipping) at Smokey Mountain Knife Works (much better than the suggested retail price of $99... Shop around, you may find a better deal.
