Kershaw Knives
The shallot onion is one of the world's favorite ways to spice up a cuisine. The Kershaw Shallot, designed by Ken Onion, is destined to spice up your knife collection.

For this one, we've peeled away the layers, leaving nothing but superb form, keen function, stainless-steel handle, and a damascus steel blade. The Shallot features a damascus steel recurve blade. The unique recurve blade design provides for low mass and high performance and is ideal for a wide range of both everyday and extraordinary tasks.

This exceptional blade is partnered with a sleek stainless-steel handle designed for a sure, ergonomic grip. The handle is built of 410 stainless-steel—hardened and tempered to provide maximum strength. For safety, there's a convenient frame lock to secure the blade in position until you choose to releases it.

The Shallot features our SpeedSafe® assisted opening system with ambidextrous index-finger opening. Just pull back on the blade protrusion with the index finger of either the left or right hand. The SpeedSafe® system then moves the blade out of the handle and smoothly and easily into position, ready for use.

The Shallot is a pocket-perfect 4-3/8 inches closed and weighs just 4.2 ounces. It is made in the USA and built to uphold Kershaw's high standards of quality and performance. Like the tasty shallot it's named for, the Kershaw Shallot is sure to make your mouth water for more.

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Ease of Opening
great knife
Well this knife is just beautiful for edc. I have always enjoyed kershaw and this one is bigger than the leek and not as "delicate" as some of my other knives. I used the back of the blade to turn a screw, for example. It's a bit heavy but that weight feels good in my hand. My only criticism is the stiffness of the spring. Perhaps this will ease up with time. The blade came super sharp as well.
