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.
This is a fairly small knife almost identical in size to the CRKT Squid (both opened and closed). The olive green is a bit darker in person. This is well-made USA manufactured knife (always a plus). It has a American Flag printed on the blade, which is a very nice touch. The action on this knife is great. Very easy and snappy! however, due the blade size and based on knife orientation, (and my fat hands) upon opening, the back edge of the blade tip does manage to catch the butt of my palm on occasion. (no cuts yet!!) this is easily avoidable though. This knife came to me flawless and very sharp out of the box. I am not a big fan of the safety, however it works great and is optional. Only other gripe is that the knife only features a single "tip down" carry pocket clip. I believe this is due to the location of the safety Overall I really love the look of this blade and the power in the firing action.
