The Oso Sweet is a classic design, but with a tasty twist, a handle of injection molded glass-filled nylon with a distinctive "scales" pattern. The Oso Sweet offers a blade of high-quality AUS6A stainless steel for toughness and edge retention. Both the Needs Work and the Oso Sweet feature the patented Speed Safe manual assist for smooth, easy opening.

OK, let me start with "I'm a knifeaholic". I own way too many knives from SOG, spyderco, byrd, etc. Most of my knives were EDC type folders but were put to the side because of some glaring weakness.With that said I tried this little Kershaw OSO sweet since I was looking for an assisted opening blade EDC. I really didn't expect much at this price but now that I've carried this every day for several months - WOW!!! I can't believe this knife has no major weaknesse..
