Kershaw Oso Sweet 1830X

Post by Owner7771 » Wed Dec 14, 2011 1:09 am

Anyone here already have one of these or know if kershaw makes anything other than kitchen knives in japan? Where its been ordered from lists it as japanese made but the 1830 oso sweet (original and 2010) and 1830RD (the rarer red one) are both made in china so its just wanting input to see if anyone knows if its a mis-listing or if there is a japaneese kershaw factory for folding knives. I know most kershaws are made in the US + a few in china I will post one way or the other when it arives and the manufacture country is on the blade.

N'importe qui ici ont déjà un de ces ou de savoir si Kershaw fait autre chose que des couteaux de cuisine au Japon? Lorsque son été commandés à partir de listes comme japonais a fait, mais le 1830 oso douce (l'original et 2010) et 1830RD (le rouge plus rare) sont tous deux fabriqués en Chine pour son entrée vouloir juste pour voir si quelqu'un sait si c'est une mauvaise inscription ou si il ya une usine Japaneese Kershaw pour les couteaux pliants. Je connais la plupart kershaws sont faites dans les quelques-uns des États-Unis en Chine Je vais poster une manière ou l'autre quand il arrive et le pays de fabrication est sur ​​la lame.

Ne fait aucune différence, où elle a été faite, 8CR13MOV est un acier inoxydable de Chine, rien de mal à cela et le 'OSO Sweet' est une bonne valeur pour l'argent à moins de €30 jusqu'à ce que le ressort casse, mais Kershaw va vous en envoyer un autre gratuit. ;)

Hi there Owner7771.
I've got a Chive, they're U.S.A. made but I can't see any difference in the quality between that and my Chill that is made in China.

From the Kershaw website FAQ's - Where are your knives made? Kershaw knives are made in the United States of America, Japan, and China.

You could always email them and ask.

I guess you didn't translate my last post Steve. :D
It doesn't really matter where the knife was made because 8CR13MOV is a Chinese stainless steel, nothing wrong with it unless you're a 'steel snob', I have a few of the Kershaw A/Os and the 'OSO Sweet' is good value for money at less than £30 delivered within the UK and if the spring should break they’ll send you a new one for free, so I’ve read. ;)

Thanks steve I have now got it through and the place I got it from misslabeled it as japanese it is still made in china using 8cr13mov steel with same 58-60 as chill real fun and razor sharp knife yes I call it fun its that speed safe mech but its just the novelty aspect its going to make a good tool long term and a good centerpeice for My slowly growing collection and a good find and buy for £26 grinz
No its not a imported by me but from a UK site I wont link it here as even though they specialise highly its still a competitor. Yes also I will be putting photos up later when I get round to it.Moon they will replace the torsion bar even resharpen it ect but only if you mail it to kershaw US then you may have the problems of mr customs man when it comes back. I have seen a strip down vid of it though and it wouldnt be hard to make a torsion bar to replace the old one if it broke very simple but effective device. Just got that from the packaging info ok kershaw may do it slightly differently for UK dont know

Sorry Moon, it was a late night post and you are probably confusing me with someone who knows what he's doing. :>

Owner7771, pleased you got sorted, I'm a bit of a fan of assisted opening knives, if you want a couple of good examples look out for a Tenmylle AUTO W.A.S.P, a Buck Quickfire AUTO or a United Cutlery Tailwind AUTO. The Buck and the United Cutlery use a long almost straight torsion bar along the back of the knife and the Tenmylle uses a system very like the Kershaw but uses a different shaped, sort of a squared off zig-zag style but engaging the blade in the same way. I also recently bought an UZI Military
Delta AUTO but the thumb stud is not in the right place for me and there's just too much detent to overcome so it'll be in for metal surgery before long.

jamesb0551, was that "devils language" the French or talk of knives? :D

It goes without saying that if you sent an A/O back to KAI you won't see it again but I've read on British Blades forum of people having replacement torsion bars (springs) sent over free of charge and if you want a Kershaw A/O as a centre piece, get an 'Offset G10', this one has a full size Benchmade 'Nitrous Stryker' A/O for size comparison...
