Kershaw Knives Chill

Most people into knives are aware that Kershaw has been offering some very high quality folding knives at good prices for a while. Like their competitors, Kershaw has signed up some well-known custom knife makers to design knives for them. One of their most successful collaborations has been with knifemaker R.J. Martin.

One of Kershaw's newest Martin-designed knives is the Chill. For those familiar with Martin's knives, the Chill can be considered a smaller sibling to the Q36 folder. For reference, the Chill has a blade length of approximately 3 inches.

Like the larger custom knife, the Chill is a flipper. It has bronze bushings on each side of the blade to facilitate smooth opening. The Chill has a liner-style lock made up of skeletonized steel liners. The Chill's handles are made of textured G10 scales.

Overall, the fit and finish of the Chill seems to be quite high, especially considering that it has a street price of $20.

For those fans of tip-up pocket carry, the Chill facilitates both tip-up and tip-down carry. It is drilled only for right-hand use, however.

The only negative thing I can say about the knife is that opening with the flipper requires a bit of wrist action to swing the blade to full extension. Remember, this is a $20 knife without IKBS or Martin's roller bearings.
