The missing link between a quality, made-in-the-USA knife and a price most people can afford has been found. Or, to be more precise, Kershaw is making it. Appropriately, we call it the Link and have given it the patriotic model number of 1776. A partially serrated blade gives this Link additional versatility for cutting through rope and other fibrous materials.
