The Kershaw Scallion is about 20% larger than the Chive and perfect for just about anything! The frame lock 410 stainless steel handles are bead blast finished as is the 420HC blade (plain). This SpeedSafe assisted knife features a dual thumb studs and a flipper for easy one-handed operation. Comes with a tip safety lock to prevent misfires. The stainless steel pocket clip is tip-down for convenient carry.
I’ve been carrying a Kershaw Scallion assisted-opening knife for as long as it has been on the market ... I’m guessing 4 years. I like it because it is small and not threatening. I have nerve damage in my hands and this knife opens easily with one hand. It stays sharp and it’s actually as quick to open as any automatic. It is a great, small general purpose blade.
Have had this knife for a few years. It does not get much pocket time. Due to my knife addiction I have many other blades I prefer to carry. For larger hands it is a bit small but the thickness of the handle does make it more comfortable to use. I personally don't care much for the recurve blade and I have also had a problem with the pivot spinning freely due to kershaw using lock tight on the pivot screw and the the hex side of the pivot spinning around on the plastic handle.
