KS1600: 1600 Ken Onion Chive
Kershaw Knives
With its less-than-two-inch blade, the Chive is a small knife, which 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 breaking down cardboard boxes.

To ensure this handy little blade is always ready when you need it, the Chive is equipped with SpeedSafe assisted opening. Just pull back on the flipper 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. For safety, the Chive has two locking systems. The frame lock secures the blade open so it can't accidentally close during use. And to ensure that it won’t accidentally open during transport, the Chive is also equipped with a Tip-Lock slider to lock the blade closed when folded. In pure stainless steel, both blade and handle are easy to clean and maintain.

Pros: None
Cons: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Ease of Opening, Lock Type
Kershaw typically has great knives. Not this one. The blade is not sharp, the deployment gets caught on I have no idea what but it doesn't engage properly. It is a bit small. The aluminum handles makes it impossible to hold for long lengths of time or with wet hands. It doesn't seem secure with the liner lock, and why can't the the 'USA' stamp be on the blade and not the handle?? It's like you're trying to hide the fact that it's made in America. For this price, suck up having the one hand opening (which doesn't work anyway) and go by a Case knife. They are always pristine, reliable and stand the test of time.
