Still a great knife and offers excellent value but IMHO, spend a little more and get the 14c28n version if you can.

Agreed. The Amazon seller lists it as the 440A, but mine is definately a 14c28 based on info that I found on a blade forum. My blade doesn't have a Born On Date (BOD) which Kershaw stopped putting on these blades after July/09. The switch from 13c26 to 14c28 was march/09. So, despite the vedor not updating their description, they appear to be selling the latest and greatest blades (steel).
Also, the older knives had a old red, white, and blue box design. The newer ones have a dark red on red design (not sure when this occured).
