Kershaw’s Dividend Knife

    KAI USA Ltd is offering a new knife under the Kershaw brand. Called the Dividend, the new folder is part of the Link series of knives that are all made in the United States of America.

    The base Dividend knife has a slimmer blade than the original Link knife. The blade is made of 421HC steel and has a stonewashed finish. It is 3″ long with a plain edge and a drop point. On the back of the knife blade is a protrusion that allows the user to flip the blade open by pulling back on it.

    It has a steel liner with a liner lock that holds the blade open. The black handles are made of a glass filled nylon. The pocket clip is reversible. The knife weighs 2.6 ounces.

    A second version of the Kershaw Dividend is also being made by KAI USA. The second version has an anodized gray handle made of aluminum instead of the black nylon. This version is slightly heavier at 2.8 ounces, but has the same blade length.

    The price on the basic Dividend is $59.99 with the gray model being an additional $10. Considering Kershaw is building these knives in Oregon and that they, in my experience, deliver quality cutting tools, the prices seem pretty reasonable to me.
