KS1840DAM Black and Silver Damascus blade and gray handle on the full size Shallot
This is No Ordinary Onion.


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.

GREAT knife!
This is an EDC (Every-Day Carry) for me. When Kershaw produced the Ken Onion Chive, Leek, and Scallion in a rainbow finish, I anxiously awaited a rainbow Shallot, but, alas, Kershaw did not do a rainbow Shallot. The Damascus-steel Shallot is much better, much prettier, and much more useful! The patterning of the steel is beautiful, and I bought KC's last black handled one, too. Damascus steel is not so dependent on sharpening, as the change in the layers of steels as the edge erodes creates a serrated edge. A wonderful blade, with easy, speedy deployment with the tab, and the frame-lock is solid & dependable. WELL WORTH the price! MUCH BETTER than a rainbow finish!

Quality for a good price!
For the price there is nothing like it. I have been using a Leek that I purchased in 2010 as an EDC and have yet to have to sharpen it. Not only is the blade still holding an edge it is just as beautiful as the day I bought it. The slim profile, blade and handle thickness, allows me to carry this knife at work in my slacks and on the weekend in my jeans. Big win for me. Overall, the best purchase I have made in quite a while and the reason I ordered 4 more for gifts. Thank you Kershaw for making the knife and thank you Knife Center for making this knife available at the price you do.
