Kershaw HOB Exclusive 1776BLBWHOB Link Blue Blackwash Assisted Knife
The House of Blades custom blue BlackWash Link uses a high-quality S35VN stainless steel blade that has been black-oxide BlackWash coated to hide the wear and tear from daily use. It uses a blue anodized aluminum handle with red back spacer. The Link is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening for easy one-handed opening via the flipper. The missing linkbetween a quality, made-in-the-USA knife and a price most consumers can affordhas been found. Or, to be more precise, Kershaw is making it. Appropriately, it is called the Link and it has been given the patriotic model number of 1776 and colored even more appropriately for the U S of A. The sculpted lines and texture of the handle provide for a comfortable and secure grip. The Link feels big and solid in the hand and offers a clean look. The pocket-clip is reversible for convenient left or right-handed pocket carry. The Link is made in Kershaws state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Tualatin, Oregon.

Excellent USA made knife!
Posted by Unknown on 13th Feb 2018
This is an excellent USA made knife that is well constructed and blade made from a high quality steel. The Only real downside to this knife is the weight at 4.8 oz it is a little heavy for any lighter weight pants or shorts. other then that it is an excellent choice for an EDC. Plus ordering with House of Blades was easy and they provide great customer service!
Nice knife. Anodizing wear is disapointing.

I like the action and feel of this knife, it is smooth. After having the knife for one week and mainly in my pocket I am a bit disappointed that the blue anodizing is wearing off. At first I thought I must have bumped it, but the area has grown. I would have attached pictures if I could.

It's even better than I though. I wish I could remove the speedsafe but I'll admit it wouldn't be a Kershaw without it. Materials, fitment finish are amazing for the price point

Clips comfortably in the pocket. The action is very quick and smooth. And, the handle feels good in your hand. Blade is very sharp.
HOB has hit a home run!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

House of Blades took a good knife and made it great. I was pleasantly surprised by the nice quality of the knife. I love the great colors available and the fit and finish is first rate. The blade was perfectly centered and the blade was very sharp. Absolutely love the finish on the blade, and how it compliments the blue scales. Feels like it was made for my hand and deployment is fast. In my humble opinion the perfect size for anyone's EDC knife.
A Most Excellent EDC!

This HOB exclusive is fantastic! I preordered the blue/black wash combo. It is gorgeous! The size and weight are perfect for my EDC preferences (I wear blue jeans nearly everyday). For my M/L hand size this handle is perfect and the blade shape does everything I want (piercing and cutting tasks). Finally, the S35vn steel is a true winner. You can't beat this deal!
