Kershaw OSO Sweet Onion Assisted Opener
Kershaw Ken Onion assisted openers are an amazing and varied breed. This newest species, the OSO Sweet Onion, is the lowest cost model and is made in China! Nevertheless, it is a well made folder with very fast action and a comfortable handle. The liner locks it open adequately and it should serve you well for many years.
Here is the description from Kershaw:
Kershaw SpeedSafe® Work Knives, spicy and sweet.
Made in Asia, Designed by Ken Onion.
The Oso Sweet features a classic Ken Onion design, but with a tasty twist—a handle of injection molded glass-filled nylon with a distinctive ‘scales’ pattern. The Oso Sweet offers a blade of high-quality AUS6A stainless-steel for toughness and edge retention.
The Oso Sweet features the patented SpeedSafe® assisted opening system for smooth, easy opening. This one-handed, index-finger opening design makes the knives easy to deploy—for both left and right-handed customers.
A locking liner ensures the blades stay securely in place until the user closes it. Also, the Oso Sweet includes a reversible pocket clip for tip-up or tip-down carry options.
Perhaps best of all, the Oso Sweet is value priced, so it’s easy to add them to your collection. Knife users who appreciate good looking, hardworking knives, a Ken Onion SpeedSafe® design—and a great price—are sure to want to add both the Needs Work and the Oso Sweet to the menu.
