I have to write about this, since the new Onion-designed products from Kershaw recv'd so much hype last year (I'm a newcomer to the forums, so this may have been done already!). I think that the overall quality, feel, and appearance of both the Random Task and Mini Task is excellent. I bought one of each (when they finally became available) for my own personal evaluation. I REALLY loved both of the knives, but I would change one significant thing about them; I would trash the cam-action! After using one-hole opening and thumb-disk/stud opening manuals for years , you develop a habit for opening the blade a certain way; i.e., your thumb follows the arc of the blade until it locks (unless you flicked the blade open). Well, I tried that with the new Onions the first time I opened them and nearly lost my thumb! Especially on the combo-edged Mini Task that I bought first! As you start to push on the thumb stud of those knives, you can feel the blade has a slight "weighted" feel from the cam. When you've extended the blade about 1/3 of the way out of the handle, the cam takes over and INSTANTLY extends the blade out fully, but your unsuspecting thumb is still following the blade along its arc via the traditional manual-opening method. By the time you can stop your ambitious thumb, it has come into contact with the blade that has been fully extended and locked for days. You're then standing there looking at your sliced-and-diced thumb wondering why-in-the-hell it's juicing all over the floor. The Onion mechanism is really innovative, just a little dangerous I feel. I finally learned a new routine for opening the Onions, but I didn't want to break my old manual-opening habits. They would be really great knives if Kershaw could offer them in a manual version. If I'm going to buy a knife, it had better be a regular manual or an automatic, nothing in between like the Onion. I've contacted Kershaw about this, but they will not return my e-mails. I even congratulated them on the knives, but not the cam-action. Oh well, they can't take constructive criticism, I guess!
