Kershaw Knives
The Scallion is one of Kershaw's most popular knives and for good reason. With its handy 2.25" blade, the Scallion is the perfect size for lightweight and convenient pocket carry. While it can easily handle just about any task, its smaller size makes it low on the intimidation factor.

The Scallion features a high-carbon stainless steel blade with good edge retention and excellent corrosion resistance. The DLC coating gives the blade a matte black tactical look and it's easy to maintain, too. Of course, one of the Scallion's coolest features is SpeedSafe assisted opening. With SpeedSafe, you can open the blade one-handed. Just pull back on the ambidextrous blade protrusion or push on the thumb stud and the blade moves out of the handle, ready for use. The Scallion's handle scales are and injection molded polyimide over steel liners. The Scallion's handle is strong, lightweight, and ergonomic.

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 you'd like to see a little tactical folder in your pocket, the black Scallion just may be your knife.
  • Flipper - May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The "flipper" is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
  • SpeedSafe® - Assists you to open any SpeedSafe knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumb stud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
  • 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.

This a great everyday knife that I use for everything. The assist opening makes it easy to open with one hand. Having the black blade gives this knife a unique look.

Snappy little flipper
This is a snappy little flipper, and it's made in the USA. For my purpose, the non-adjustable clip isn't a huge issue, I like the liner lock, and the flipper with thumb studs pops right open. This was my first Kershaw, and I'm already looking at another one. My regular EDC is a Spyderco, but a bigger Kershaw might win out in the future.

Mean, Sharp, and Accessible
This is a fantastic knife, best EDC I've ever owned. I went for this one because it doesn't have the ugly holes on the blade and it's handle won't get slippery when it's wet or if my hands are sweaty. I love the lock feature, because whether I keep it in my pocket or my purse, I know it isn't going to spring open. The assisted opening action is really smooth, quick, and easy to use. It never opens only halfway like some spring-assists--it always jumps out and looks mean. It came very, very sharp. The size is perfect, while the recurve gives more carving surface area, and I'd especially recommend this one to someone with smaller hands or to women. It would be a great gift. I might change out the pocket clip later because the clip makes the knife look way bigger than it is when you wear it on your pocket, but the clip works great, and it always stays in place. Love this knife.
