THE POPULAR SCALLION—NOW IN OLIVE DRAB

The popular Scallion now comes in a handsome new color: olive drab. Like the rest of the Scallion family, it has 2.25 inch blade that makes it the ideal size for easy, lightweight pocket carry. Even so, the Scallion steps up to just about any task you'd ask it to do, from breaking down cardboard boxes to slicing an apple for a snack.

The blade is 420HC, a high-carbon stainless steel blade with good edge retention and excellent corrosion resistance. For an easy-to-maintain matte finish, the blade is bead-blasted. And as always, the Scallion comes equipped with 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. To get that discrete olive drab color, we anodize the Scallion's aluminum handle scales so they will accept a dye to produce our scratch resistant, colorful handles. A locking steel liner secures the blade when open and is easy to close for storage.

A Tip-Lock builds in extra safety during transport. Just move the slider built into the handle to help guard against accidental opening. If you like a little color in your pocketknife, but want something a bit discrete, the olive drab Scallion may be for you.
Features
  • 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.
  • Single Position - The pocket clip is in a fixed position on the knife handle; usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary.

Scallion satisfaction
Started buying Ken's designs almost as soon as the assisted opening models debuted..Have had all three..The leek, scallion,chive in different finishes..stainless,bead blast,an the rainbow ..I forget what that finish is called , but do know it's the most delicate of the bunch.Wife an daughter bought me a leek in rainbow for bday an I use as a dress carry..The leek being the slimmest of the line.The straight edge an thin blade of the leek would be a great fighting blade, but not really good for straight up daily carry..Also loved my lil chive in all stainless cuz of it's blade shape an it's size makes it too small an hard to hang on to ,but is a unnoticeable carry..This all being said..The Sweet in middle is the scallion...I know carry this blasted olive that's amazing..Having a blade twice as thick as a leek , it feels like a tank side by side an will allow abuse the other won't..Just the right compromise of handle,blade shape an bullet proof finish..I do general contracting an have put this series to the test..Last word..Get one..

Super Great Carry for Everyday
I live in northwestern Montana. I carry this knife everyday for a using blade. From cutting hay twine to gutting a deer, ear notching livestock to castrating calves, This knife is extremely useful. I have the plain blade, no serrations, as the serrated edge is likely to eat up finger skin for delicate work and I carry a multi-tool as well. Several strops on the crock sticks and it is shaving sharp.` When roping or team roping I carry a fully serrated blade but all other times I carry this knife. Vest pocket.....Perfect fit...Jacket chest pocket clips right in. Mine is AUS 08 steel, older model and still going strong. I have lost several of the smaller scale retaining screws over time and need to get replacements with a bit to fit; or, return the knife to Kershaw for a refurbishing, however, i don't want to use a different blade in the meanwhile. At the price I should have a couple on hand.
