    I'm still trying to find one for a decent price.
    Those are some nice additions to any collection.

    There is no "best", its all opinion. My favorites in order are Shallot, Skyline, Skyline FB. I haven't tried any others except for the Leek (I don't care for it because the blade is to thin) but I plan to get a Blur, Zing, and more in the future :D

    I love Kershaw. I can't say what the best is because I haven't owned or seen half of them all in person. My favorites out of the ones I own are the Speedform II, Leek CPM-D2, and Skyline.

    Of all the currently available Kershaw folders I personally think that the Speedform II is the best or at least my confirmed favorite. A smallish gentleman's knife with a 3.25" blade and a very manual action.

    It's a thing of beauty in minimalist form with Elmax steel blade and a 3-D machined G-10 which looks great to the eyes and touch.

    Surprisingly, the Kershaw site says it has been discontinued but you can still find them for a great price of less than half of MSRP delivered.

    For lightweight EDC and sheer unique, awesome looking blade & powerful opening *thwack*... Kershaw Echelon.
    For opening and closing enjoyment - Kershaw RAM
    For actual use day in and day out - Kershaw Cylcone - full size, plain edge no AO on/off switch. That knife is a hefty beast!

    Runners up: Mini Cyclone & Shallot
