KS1600DAM: 1600DAM Ken Onion Chive, Damascus
Kershaw Knives
The Chive series features Kershaw's SpeedSafe ambidextrous opening system for smooth, easy opening by both right and left-handed users. Closed, the Chive is less than three inches long, perfect for pocket carry. This Chive has a handsome Damascus layered steel blade. This material is formed by taking several different steels and hammering them together, folding them over and repeating the process until there is a multitude of layers and the effect is extraordinary. The black and silver alternating layers are strikingly beautiful and many believe that Damascus steel blades get sharper than other steels.

All Chives also feature the Safety Tip Lock to ensure the blade stays securely inside the handle until the user releases it, and a removable pocket clip for easy carrying. The Chive may be the smallest member of the "Onion" family, but it's got all the advanced features knife users demand.

great pocket knife
i carry a pocket knife at all times(40Yrs).this is one of the lightest, easiest to open and sharpest i have had. don't know how the blade will hold an edge and sharpen. but it is Damascus steel so i dont think that will be a problem.

Cons: None
Pleased with purchase
Chive: I use it as a backup. It's sharp and stays sharp. It's easy to open and to use. I didn't know that it had a lock, but I like it. It's size is great. Not so impressed with the K-bar. I should have expected, for the price, the quality of the blade wouldn't beeven very good.

Pros: Overall Quality, Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Blade Material
Cons: None
I carry this everyday, as it is the smallest assist opening knive I have ever had. Wanted it for small work assistance. The opening is a little slow and does not open fully sometimes yet, but I feel that I need to practice opening it a while in order to loosen the wear parts. This blade is also probably one of the hardest materials to use in such a small size. The pocket clip is excellent as well. I enjoyed the stainless chive version for years, which is why I think that Kershaw makes some of the best assist opening small knives I have ever had the pleasure of owning. Bought 2 new Chives, since I lost the first one while I was exercising on a soccer field with friends. Probably could have prevented looseing it while running and kicking, since I was aware of a slightly lower strength clip (which I had modified for ease of operation). So, I am happy if someone else has found and is enjoying it now.
