Kershaw® 3/4-Ton Knife $7.90 at Cabela's. Free shipping to store, or free shipping @ $50+. Will have to pay sales tax in store of if there is a Cabela's in your state.

The wide-blade Kershaw 3/4-Ton Knife is a great work and utility knife for a range of everyday tasks. Blade is machined out of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel and is bead-blasted for a smooth finish. Slimmer blade stock with extra steel with wide panel grinds. Two-thirds of the blade have been thinned for a stout yet strong performance. Glass-filled nylon handle scales for durability and dimensional stability. Rubber insert provides additional grip traction. Locking liner provides a lockup security while the blade is open and releases with a push to the left when needed. Wrench-shaped pocket clip. Imported.

Blade: 2-3/4" 8Cr13MoV stainless steel.
OAL: 6-5/8".
Closed length: 3-7/8".
Wt: 3.8 oz.
Manual opener

This is cheapest I've seen this sturdy, little knife in awhile, it's $6-7 more expensive on Amazon right now. 8Cr13MoV is a budget Chinese stainless steel that gives a lot of value for the money. It holds it's edge for a reasonable amount of time considering the cost and is easy to sharpen to a keen edge. IMHO, it is the minimum quality steel for a budget knife, but better can be had is you want to search around the $30+ mark.

who's gonna buy a knife that weighs 1500 pounds?

I got one of these last time they were $8. It's become my EDC. It's easy to sharpen, sturdy as hell and is light enough to wear with anything.
Too bad they don't have free shipping or I'd pick up another 1 or 2.
I won't be around Cabela's anytime soon (1.5 hour drive)

Knife quality can vary, but I'd put the Kershaw knives very slightly above Gerbers in similar price ranges. Of course, it's always better to get to know your steel and read reviews on individual knives for quality because just about ever knife manufacture out there makes both budget and high end blades. And then there is quality vs price to consider as well.

The Gerber Air Ranger is made from slightly softer 7Cr17MoV stainless steel but gets good reviews in its price range. The two knives are totally different in size and design, but pretty similar in build quality otherwise, with the Kershaw winning out a tiny bit with its 8Cr13MoV blade, IMHO.

Both are pretty good deals at their current sale price, it just depends if you want a smaller, lighter blade or something that will fill your hand better. And there are always "better" knives in higher grade steels if you want to pay more.

It has a clip that looks like a wrench on the back side of it

That looks nice... Is it too heavy to put that on a keychain and carry in pocket? I think Gerber is about the same quality as Kershaw isn't it...

Thanks! So actually, although not sure how much lighter you mean, then the Gerber is better for everyday carry are a slightly lighter weight, if I can even tell the difference? Unless I needed the blade to whittle a steel ball... Or I guess it matters for durability...

IDK about others but my knife was pretty crappy. Sharp but very difficult to engage the opening and terribly off center. Kershaw makes some decent stuff but this is not one of those models. I admit for the price you can't expect too much and this is a good knife to throw in a tackle box or something but not to EDC. Sorry, I'm a bit of a knife snob.

This was a complaint heard often on this model, but I understand Kershaw is doing a lot better with more recently built 3/4 Ton knives.

Also, you can almost always fix a tight and/or off center blade by adjusting the hinge screw. All knives need cleaning, sharpening, lubrication and an occasional adjustment of the hinge screw, along with maybe a little thread-lock if they screws get loose. Especially some of the more budget blades.

I have to giggle at folks who send knives back when a quick turn of a screw probably would have adjusted the blade to exactly the stiffness they wanted.

EDIT: I say that last bit understanding a good, quality knife should be well built, sharp and adjusted perfectly out of the box so it is a joy to operate.
