Just wrote a review on my first Kershaw knife I ever bought (and bought it here on Massdrop), the Oso Sweet, and I have to rate the Brawler the same - 5 stars. Awesome build, great quality, great blade, great mechanism. You just can't go wrong with a Kershaw. They are built to last, way beyond my years. Take care of it, keep it sharp and clean, and it will take care of you and give you a lifetime of use. If you have any doubts - don't. Just do it. You won't regret it. By the way, I now own 5-6 Kershaw, of which I bought 4 of them here on Massdrop (all different). Love them all!
