Kershaw Oso Sweet
« on: September 29, 2017, 04:47:52 pm »
Our local Tractor Supply stores have been carrying these for $14.99, in their sale bin.  It's not a fantastic knife, but it's pretty darn good, and at the price, they almost qualify as disposable asserts.  (They usually list for 21-24 dollars on Amazon, and the local Walmart has them for $22.99) 

I've only bought six of them in the last two weeks.

    I don't own one, but I know others who do. I think they're pretty nice!  :cool

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    I own a Kershaw Oso and it is as its name says, almost too sweet. I've only used it for cutting boxes, envelopes and opening bags of cement with it and it keeps on ticking, a little wobbly but that's after the cement bags, but nothing concerning, good as a first knife for yourself or a loved one.

    Just about all of Kershaw's knives are good work horses that are dependable and cheap.

    I used to carry the 1950 tremor for self defense a long time ago. Now it resides in my little sister's pocket, as she isn't a fan of guns or old enough to carry.

    I would like to get her something nicer for self defense, but it fits the bill very nicely as far as utility goes.

    I own and carry lots of Kershaw knives. I think they are great bang for the buck.

    My first Kershaw was an Oso Sweet, good starter assisted opening knife. I have several of the more expensive ones assembled in the US, and the fit and finish is much better than the Chinese ones. If I could get several more for that price I would.

    I want to try there Zero Tolerance brand, but the blade shapes I like are the more expensive models, and $200 for a pocket knife that I will beat to hell is a too much right now.

    I need to go to the local TSC to check.

    Well, our local Tractor Supply is where I buy dog food and horse feed, and I try to grab one or two of these every time I go there.  So far, I've got mine, and a spare, and one for my rescue bag, and I've given out three or four as gifts.  And I've still got a dozen or so in the hidey-hole.  Maybe I should quit for a while. 

    But Academy Sports has them for $24.99, while TSC still has them for $14.99.
