I like Kershaw too. And, yes, Sandvik steel is awesome.
But, almost every knife shown here is considered superior to Kershaw’s offerings.
Nina Klotzli identified the thread size and the heads as "Spline" without specifying a bit size. I doubt that they're Torx Align which are designed for snug fit in deeply recessed screws as the SBG clip screw heads are tiny and shallow. Thanks for the suggestion, though.Maybe they are Torx Align tapered screws?
Got my Inkosi with me again. I’m slowly becoming just a couple of knives guy, kinda like it that way better. Love using them tho. Slice right down the side of that EMTI think that more than just a couple guys use their knives in this thread...I use mine at work too, but it’s actually quite hard to catch scratches in photos. Especially photos of CRK’s.
Two knives of mine that see extensive work use...far away shot...they look BNIB...closeup, with some difficulty, shows some of the scratches.

ChazzyP also uses his blades at work.
To be fair...I definitely have some “light use” and “fondler” blades as well.
Ps: I hope this doesn’t come across as rude...not my intention. Just sometimes things are not as they appear in photo’s. The bonus is that knife blades tend to wear very well. And also, yes, some of the posted knives here don’t see any use. Some folks are users, some folks are safe queen collectors, and some are both.
I definitely get where you are coming from though...a lot of great budget knives will see way more use than expensive knives in this thread...for sure!

I have a feeling a lot of scratched up blades are gonna make an appearance in this thread today. Thank you for that!
I must admit, I’m the kind of guy who has a “honeymoon” phase with my higher end blades. Sometimes take a year or two for me to finally stop caressing the knife and put it into actual use.
MRI nice users!!
I do use all my favorite and also the expensive knives. The problem is I have so many So only a few get scratched up and it takes time to show usage.
