KS1600NB: 1600NB Chive, Navy Blue
Kershaw Knives

With its less-than-two-inch blade, the navy blue Chive is a small knife. This, of course, makes it perfect for pocket, pack, purse, or briefcase carry. But just because it’s small doesn't mean the Chive isn't mighty. In fact, the Chive is perfect for just about any cutting task you’d care to ask it to do—from opening packages to cutting duct tape.

To ensure this handy little blade is always ready when you need it, the navy blue Chive is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening. Just pull back on the ambidextrous blade protrusion or push on the thumbstud and the blade moves out of the handle, ready for use. The high-carbon blade steel offers good edge retention and excellent corrosion resistance. The bead-blasted finish is easy to maintain. This Chive's handle scales are navy blue anodized aluminum over steel liners. Anodizing not only enables the aluminum to take a scratch resistant color, but it actually strengthens the aluminum.

The navy blue Chive's handle is strong, lightweight, and colorful. For safety, it has a locking liner to keep it locked safely open and a Tip-Lock to keep it locked safely closed during transport. If blue is your color, the navy blue Scallion just might be your knife.
  • SpeedSafe - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • Single Position - The pocketclip is in a fixed position on the knife handle; usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary.
  • Liner Lock - Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife’s steel “liner,” the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.
  • Blade length: 1-15/16 in. (4.9 cm)
  • Closed length: 2-7/8 in. (7.3 cm)
  • Overall length: 4-13/16 in. (9.9 cm)
  • Single-position pocketclip
  • Steel: 420HC, bead-blasted finish
  • Handle: 6061-T6 anodized aluminum
  • Weight: 1.8 oz.

Cons: Handle Feel
Great Little Knife!
I have a larger folding knife but wanted something really small to keep in my pocket. This little knife is sleek looking, has a nice assisted opening feature, locks for safety, and feels really sturdy. I think the only thing that could be improved is the handle is so slick it almost seems slippery. I wouldn't recommend it as a person's only EDC knife if you want anything that could be used for self-defense but it's perfect for routine daily tasks! Love it.

Little Knife - Big Features
I love Ken Onion designed knives, especially the look of his recurve blades. I'm more of a collector than a user. I don't EDC this knife. I have other knives that I prefer for EDC. That doesn't mean that there is anything wrong with this knife, just a little smaller than I like for EDC. The knife came very sharp. Every time I get a new knife, I run it over my strop. A few passes, and now this knife cuts like a scalpel. The blade locks up tight when open, with no play at all. When closed, the blade is perfectly centered, and I love the blue handles. The only negative I found is that it doesn't always flip fully open with with the flipper. I have to push at just the right angle, and use a little wrist action to get it to work. This may be that the knife is still new and needs a little break in period. The small size is also probably a contributing factor. It is getting better with use, so this may continue to improve. All in all, this is a great little knife with big features and quality. I highly recommend this knife.
