I love this knife! The only problems I had with the Kershaw Dividend is the lack of a deep carry clip and poor quality steel. This HOB model fixes both of those issues and keeps the price just right. I also really like the blue and black coloring. The knife is light and nearly disappears when in the pocket. Speed safe is great. Blade shoots out every time and, unlock many full automatic blades, the assist is only applied at a certain point which makes it easy to close one handed. The blade came just ok sharp so I did have to sharpen it to get it to slice through paper easily. Now it is an amazing cutter and shoots through cardboard with ease. I've used it fairly heavily and haven't needed to resharpen so the S35VN seems to be holding up well. This knife is highly recommended for someone looking for a lightweight, but very capable folder. Also, USA Made!

I echo what everyone else has said. This knife is the perfect light to med EDC duty knife. Super thin handle, premium steel, super light, perfect blade length and shape, deep carry clip and gorgeous blue handle that just looks right against the black washed blade. Love it so much I got the black on red one too.

For starters I want to say this is my 3rd Kershaw knife with speedsafe in the past 3 years and I haven't had a problem with the speedsafe on any of them including this one. I think the speedsafe complaints are really blown out of proportion.
As for this knife, it will handle everything an edc knife needs to handle. Blade is razor sharp out of the box. S35VN is a great steel, a massive upgrade from the 420hc in the normal Dividend. Speedsafe opening works great. Love the handle ergonomics and the shape of the blade. Its easy to sharpen. The pocket clip holds the knife at the perfect depth in my pocket and having 4 different pocket clip positions to chose from is nice. The fit and finish is great. And it's made in the USA. I really can't find anything bad to say about this knife. You'll be hard pressed to find something better for the money except for maybe the M390 version of this same knife but good luck finding it in stock anywhere.
One of the Best EDC Available!

This knife may be the best EDC available right now! HOB took a good knife and upgraded it to a great one with this exclusive version. To me an EDC has a one blade about 3" that locks open, made of a high-end steel, visually appealing, lightweight, thin, and costs less than $100. This knife check all those boxes and is made in the USA. I'm not using an EDC as a work tool. I typically use it to cut a loose string on clothing, peel an orange, dismantle a cardboard box, open plastic packaging, or open mail. This knife is a great for this role. I prefer this assisted opening over a axis lock like a mini grip. The deep pocket clip, thin profile, and light weight make it easy to carry. Less noticeable in the pocket than a native. The blue handle and black blade look great together. The S35VN blade has ideal characteristics for EDC. This knife balances features and affordability perfectly to offer a great EDC option. These are an HOB exclusive so you should buy one before they are all gone!

You'll be hard pressed to find better value for the price. Great edc knife. Not a harder use knife however since the blade stock is very thin.
