I ordered it from Cabela's a few days ago when the price dropped to $7.99 and received it today. It is kind of funny, too: received an email notificatioj from Cabela's this morning saying the the item has been shipped. Found it at my door later this afternoon. Almost instantaneous delivery...

After reading the comments, I admit, I was skeptical about the quality and value of this knife. Some users reported that this knife is hard to open with one hand. Of course, this is the first thing I tried when inspecting the knife. This must be the newer generation of the 3/4 ton, because it is super easy to open the blade with one hand. The blade can be effortlessly opened with one hand all the way (not 1/3 or 1/2 of the way). After opening, the blade clicks into place, no wobble, with a very positive click. The blade is perfectly centered. Cannot speak to durability or longevity of the knife, but, upon receiving it, everything looks tight. The knife came sharp. Hope this helps.

Bait and switch would mean I was sold one thing and given another. Not really an accurate statement. Cabelas always over sells past their inventory. Most people who places orders with them know and understand that.

Bait and switch retailer. Careful, they will probably cancel your order like they just did to hundreds of us that bought scopes on the black Friday sale. Cabelas is being very unethical.

Excellent knife! I've carried mine every day for over a year. I bought the red one at cabelas. Super sharp knife that stays sharp. Whole thing is like the day I bought it. This has been the best knife for the money I own. I wouldn't choose a little fat blade like this for defense but as a utility blade it's been perfect. It would be highly concealable in a bad situation though. The little clip that looks like a wrench does a great job of keeping the knife from slipping around in my pocket. The lockup is perfection. I seem to lose a lot of knives because I'm actively working on our farm. This one has probably stayed with me because it sits so low in a pocket and the clip is so tight and wide when I have it on a pocket.

Good value and no complaints for the price. Blade locks smoothly and securely.
The handles of course will not give the same appearance and feel as other Kershaw knives costing $50 or more but this knife is absolutely worthy of a $20 price tag and priced at half of that is a great deal.

I have this knife and the screws have pulled out of the handle twice. The first time I sent it in, and they repaired it. The second time they sent me the parts to repair it, which I believe were for the half ton so they didn't fit. I emailed them two weeks ago and I have gotten no response, I don't need a knife that spends more time getting repaired than it does in my pocket, so no more Kershaw's for me.

That sucks. I've had really good luck with the 3/4 ton and it's generally my go-to knife for EDC. Then again... it's got a pretty easy life. Box opening, some light carving, and an occasional steak.

I have a hard time with the "Made in China" issue as much as the next guy...but I love this knife. It feels great in the hand, flips open with authority with your thumb and a flick of the wrist, and the blade size is just awesome...and it's really a little knife. Best $10.99 you'll ever spend on a knife.

I have all three of the "Ton" knives from Kersahw and carry one occasionally. I also have a couple of Kershaws ZT knives which I carry on occasion. I also have more than a few of older Kershaws that were made in Japan. Kershaw designs, builds and sells knives for a fair price. If they are made here they are not going to be cheap to buy. If you dont like the imported knives then do not buy them. As for me I buy what I like and rotate what I carry. At this moment I have the following in my pockets and on my belt: Buck 110, Leatherman super tool 300, CRKT Heiho, Case Large Stockman "Blue", Swiss Army Explorer, Swiss Army Classic on a key chain, and a Ian Sinclair credit card knife in my wallet. This is normal for me. I have collected knives for about forty years. I have good, bad and yes, ugly knives. But they are all still tools that fascinate me. I believe I passed the one thousand mark a few years ago. You go on and boycott who ever you need to but for anyone who needs a low price knife, the 3/4 Ton is a great knife for the money. And for those who can afford them, buy a ZT or a US made Benchmade.

Made in China.

No thanks.

China is engaging in an all out economic war against America. Their methods are illegal, corrupt and mendacious. Price fixing, dumping, currency manipulation, bribery... The list goes on. Chinese products sold here are produced in labor camps, by children, with no regard for human rights or the environment. They ship us dry wall full of caustic chemicals that ruin a home, poison dog food, toxic lead-laden children's toys, toxic tooth paste...

Excellent documentary, Death By China, is a must-see for all patriotic Americans, for all ethical Americans who care about fair trade, human rights, or the environment.

When the govt of China published an illustrated map of their nuclear attack strategy against America, I went from trying to avoid "made in China" products to an outright boycott.

I don't buy the nuclear argument. Haven't you heard of mutually assured destruction? The United States has missile submarines that just carry nukes around so that in the event of a nuclear attack, we can ensure that we kill everybody.

"China is engaging in an all out economic war against America. Their methods are illegal, corrupt and mendacious. Price fixing, dumping, currency manipulation, bribery... The list goes on."

We (the US) do the same shit so don't get on your high horse just yet.

"Chinese products sold here are produced in labor camps, by children, with no regard for human rights or the environment."

That's China problem. If they ruin their own environment in the process that's on them. Nothing wrong with children or people CHOOSING to work for low pay if the alternative is starving to death in poverty. I suggest you look at all the success around the country as a whole before you just look at one negative aspect in a propaganda "documentary".

"They ship us dry wall full of caustic chemicals that ruin a home, poison dog food, toxic lead-laden children's toys, toxic tooth paste."

And where are the government alphabet soup agencies to prevent this? Seems like that's more of the FDA and other agencies not doing their job. I'm not condoning the bad shit that China does do but to alienate an entire country for what some bad guys do is rather idiotic. You should be asking why companies need to outsource their labor to China to begin with. Protip: It has to do with the Federal Reserve devaluing US currency over the last 100 years.

Yeah right, you blame the people working in a sweatshop for "choosing" to work there ? If you believe that then you are delusional.

It's not a sweatshop to them hence why they do it. Would you rather they just starve to death in a field because that's what would happen if they didn't CHOOSE to work in a factory. It's unskilled labor working to get out of poverty. I never blamed them for working there. I said it was their better option over starving to death and they seem to agree.

Another 50 years and the comments will be "Made in space... No Thanks! The Orbiters are engaged in an all out war with us Terras. Using their cybernetically-enhanced clones and robotic free labor to manufacture blades that are molecularly superior due to their unfair microgravity advantage...then they just push their products out of orbit and gravity brings them down to us, while we have to spend millions to break the gravity well to ship to them. WAAAAAH!"

If you don't like buying Chinese products...better learn how to make circuit boards in your garage. At least there people have to work for wages. Instead, we overtax those Americans that actually still have a work ethic to pay for food stamps and welfare so the breeders have plenty of time to pop out more qualifying children for the Earned Income Credit.

By the way, those spunky little 7 year olds make a damn decent knife for a good price.

I've really been turned off by Kershaw since they began outsourcing their knives to China some years ago. Quality suffered and they seem to be riding on brand name alone.

I have about a dozen Kershaw knives, including this one, and my experience has been great. My 3/4 ton and 1 ton knives came razor sharp and I've been using them daily with only an occasional touchup on a ceramic stick or the bottom of a coffee mug.

They aren't made from the best steel, but I don't expect that for the $8 to $12 I've given for each of them. The best bonus... if I break off a tip or lose one, I'm not out much.

I have a couple of the nicer Spyderco knives and it's always in the back of my mind what I paid for them, so they don't get used or beat on like my EDC blades.

I can't speak for Kershaw before they outsourced and perhaps they were even better back then, but they certainly wouldn't be at this price if they were still made here.
