I recently purchased a Kershaw Random Task knife from my favorite knife dealer. I was instantly taken by the interesting blade design and high gloss G-10 handle. The knife incorporates Ken Onion's torsion bar technology, code named "Speed Safe" by Kershaw. The knife nearly jumps out of your hand with only a slight flip of the thumb stud. Very cool technology and very handy in an emergency, when one hand operation is important. The knife has titanium liners and a very ergonomic handle design. However, the reason I am motivated to write this review is due to the edge and CPM-440V stainless steel used on this knife. I like to whittle. I have used countless knives during my lifetime in this hobby. I spent a good deal of time this week whittling a piece of hard Ohio cherry. After finishing my masterpiece(a tanto style knife with para-cord wrapped handle for my son)the Kershaw knife was still hair-popping sharp! I could not believe it! I used it to slice tomatoes in my kitchen as a sanity check. It sliced through the tomatoes like a razor. I have a good number of pocket knives from Swiss army knives to Emerson tacticals, but the Kershaw Random Task knife has earned the honored place in my pocket as my new trusty companion. I cannot recommend this knife more!
