Learn how to take photos of the Junkyard Dog in this German knife magazine.

The new Kershaw Dividend was recognized at the 2017 Blade Show.

One of our newest Kershaws is quickly becoming a beloved member of the family. Fans and critics alike have praised the Dividend, including the judges at this year’s Blade Show. That’s right, the grey aluminum Kershaw Dividend received the 2017 Best Buy of the Year Award.

Consider the Dividend to be the Link’s younger sibling. Both knives are made-in the-USA and are set at attractive price points. While the Link has been a runaway success, some users prefer a slimmer carry. That’s where the Dividend comes in. The knife was made with sleekness and performance in mind.

For sleekness, the weight plays a huge factor. The aluminum Dividend weights in at just 2.8 ounces, a whole 2 ounces lighter than the aluminum Link. As far as cutting goes, the 3-in., drop-point blade performs as an effective slicer. When you do need to use the Dividend, you can easily deploy the blade with SpeedSafe assisted opening.

Two versions of the Dividend are available now. The standard model includes a glass-filled nylon handle with curves that fit the hand comfortably. The other Dividend features an anodized aluminum handle in matte grey.

The latter model is set just $69.99 MSRP. For the amount of USA quality packed into in the folder, this Kershaw provides a great bang for your buck. The standard model is similarly affordable, priced at just $59.99 MSRP. Few American knives can boast such a great value.

Whichever Dividend you choose, you’re certain to have the best buy the year. Both models are available now.

The precision cutting of the Leek was on full display during the hit NBC crime series.

The season 4 finale of The Blacklist was full of revelations. Amid the twists and turns of the story, the Kershaw Leek proved to be a useful tool for FBI Assistant Director of Counter Terrorism Harold Cooper. Viewers learned that Cooper uses his Leek to handle delicate evidence. During the episode, he cut open an evidence box and sliced off a small piece of fabric from a bloody shirt. It's nice to know that Cooper prefers the Leek as an everyday carry during his investigations. Watch for the spotting in the full episode
