Cool Kershaw.Well it came! So excited!
My first automatic. Kershaw Launch 8. Very impressed. I'm 50% Italian, but with this I feel 100%. I'm Sicilian, my great-grandfather had mafia toes, do I feel like I'm continuing tradition... Really well built, super sharp, opens with authority but not so much it wants to pull out of your hand. One of the lightest knives I own. I don't like assisted knives, but this very different. I probably won't be in my rotation much until I can get a deep carry clip.
I don't really want to risk returning this one and getting one where I don't like the inlay as much. I think I can live with the green. Thoughts?
S125V? Awesome.I can see where orange liners would look really sweet on the blade, but it's a great looking knife and the green is nice. Got a pic of the spine?
Here's my latest that I've been splashing pics of all over BF--Andrey Biryukov Sigma with 4 1/8" of S125V orange-peel finished steel, ceramic bearings in brass races over steel underlay washers, rolling ceramic detent ball, and seriously milled out interior pockets. Wicked smooth and easy flipper that I haven't been able to put aside since I got it.
Yeah, that's the first one for me that high on the CPM S series scale. I'm sure it'll hold the edge, but am wondering how it'll be sharpening. I wasn't much of a fan of the BMK S90V I had, as I found it kinda brittle and chippy, but the S90V in my KW exclusive Millie I like a lot. I had a hard time sharpening the one I got for my son, but he dulled the living sh*t out of his and I had to take it back pretty far to get to an apex.S125V? Awesome.
