Kershaw Chive knives are made from 420HC stainless steel with 6061-T6 anodized aluminum handles. (Except the 1600 Stainless Chive which is made with a 410 stainless steel handle and the 1600VIB Rainbow which is made from 410 stainless-steel titanium oxidide coated handle). Kershaw's Leek knives feature SpeedSafe, the patented, assisted-opening system built into many of Kershaw's Ken Onion designed knives. SpeedSafe assists the user to smoothly open the knife with a manual push on the blade's thumb stud. Your thumb never leaves the handle! The base of the SpeedSafe system is its torsion bar. which, when closed, helps keep the knife closed, preventing it from being opened by "gravity." In order to open the knife, the user must apply manual pressure to the thumb stud to overcome the resistance of the torsion bar. After the blade is out of the handle, the torsion bar moves along its half-moon track and takes over. The blade opens smoothly and locks into position, ready for use. The Scallion also has a removable pocket clip that can be switched around for tip-up or tip-down carrying.
