A great choice for either EDC or tactical use, the Kershaw Blackout delivers a nicely finished Sandvik 13C26 stainless blade in black. Boosted opening comes in the form of a torsion bar assist system; fast and reliable. Handle is ergonomic and agreeably finished, the clip near perfect (albeit on the wrong side of the handle!), lockup tight, and the $50-ish price is reasonable. The gain a better, razor edge, I had this version re-ground by Zach Wood and it its scary sharp. Downsides are few on the Blackout but might include: maybe a bit heavy at 3.8 oz, slightly chunky (but ergonomic in hand!), small lanyard hole, and non-reversible tip-down clip. The Blackout is a long term performer for Kershaw and that's because it just works and works well. //////////////////// Nutnfancy Likability Scale: 7 of 10
