The Skyline, by Kershaw is an excellent, light weight folding knife, especially for its weight.
The Skyline features a 3.1" blade made of Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel or 512 Layer Damascus steel. It weighs in at an incredible 2.5 oz. The reason for its light weight is due to the fact that there is only one stainless liner within the black G-10 handles to lock the blade. The textured G-10 handles provide a good grip and the liner lock provides solid lockup with no blade play.
The Skyline opens easily using just the index finger of either hand but it can also be opened with the ambidextrous thumbstuds. It comes with a reversible metal pocket clip that allows for tip up/down right handed carry.
