KS1600VIB: 1600VIB Ken Onion Chive, Rainbow
Kershaw Knives
The amazing rainbow colors of the Rainbow Chive are the result of applying a titanium-oxide coating to both blade and handle. The coating is created by a process in which metals are ionized, then permanently deposited as a thin metal coating on the blades. The coating is durable and scratch resistant—and looks, well, amazing.

But that's not all the Rainbow Chive has to offer. With its less-than-two-inch blade, the Rainbow Chive is the perfect size for pocket, pack, purse, or briefcase carry. Yet even though this is a smaller blade, the Rainbow Chive is plenty powerful. It’s perfect for handling just about any light-to-medium duty task. To ensure this handy little blade is always ready when you need it, the Rainbow 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.

For safety, the Rainbow 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 Rainbow Chive is also equipped with a Tip-Lock slider to lock the blade closed when folded.

Pros: Weight, Blade Material, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Nice Gentleladies Knife
The Good: solid, well designed, good value, attractive (you judge) The Bad: small and so difficult to operate for large hands, little gripe because of slick surface This is a small knife designed for light duty work and EDC. It's hard to find fault with it for it's intended purpose. If you are buying it you like the color ( my wife loves it). It's tough for purpose and well designed. This knife with a slick side panel is no good for wet or sweaty hands but that's not why you are buying it.

Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: None
I got one for myself and one for my brother. I told him it was the perfect suburban squires steak knife ! The US built Kershaw's are fine things . The Ti nitride coating looks good and is quite hard . I was using only the thumb pin to open - thought is was a little awkward- last resort - read the instructions ...flipper lever - Wow this really works !
