    I like the Blade, kinda hate the handle. Speedsafe. Can be had for 30 bucks. 3 inches (About my minimum length for speedsafe)



    RJ I: (No serration)

    Thick ass Tanto tip, so I don't have to worry about abuse. A little plain. Speedsafe. Can be had for $30. 3.5 inches



    Brawler:

    Also Tanto. I like this design a little better. Still Tanto tip. Again, $30. Speedsafe. 3.25 inch



    Tanto Groove:

    KAI USA : Kershaw Product Details

    No Speedsafe. Very sexy. Like this design. 3.5 inches. This one will be a little over 50.





    I don't mind Speedsafe, but it needs to be on a bigger blade, or else I feel out of control. It's hit or miss with me.

    Opinions?

    I love assisted Kershaw knives but that Tanto Groove IS very sexy!

    Edit: Where you getting them so cheap?

    Speed safe is hit or miss with me. It has to be a decent sized blade. I hate my friends Chive and Shallots. I really dislike pretty much the entire Ken Onion line. My 1940 feels pretty good though. It's bigger. More in control. Also:

    I like the grip of the Groove; but not really a fan of tantos(at least from a "universal knife" POV).

    Groove gets my vote. But ultimately it depends on what your using it for.

    I only like serrations on larger fixed handle knives. They cut through tough fabrics much faster.

    I think the only reason I like it is because its much easier to take the flaps off a box with a serrated knife.

    fack. well nevermind my opinion no longer matters. I hope you find a really thick cardboard box that you cant cut the flaps off of. when you do, you'll think of me and curse my name.

    On the back of a fold, the tantos corner (on the blade not the tip) always made quick work for me. I used to take my Kershaw to work all the time.

    Bumping this up, I just got my 1775 and 1940 back for fixin's and service. We sent a box of 7 or 8 knives, they repaired the blades, honed the edge out, and sharpened them to the point of scary, for 5.25 split 4 ways. Kershaw's warranty program is excellent. As are their knives, and service. We had all knives back in 3 weeks.
